There: There are many possible source of your "rash".

Allergic reaction: could you be sensitive to the material or elastic in a swimsuit, panties, shorts or pants? If so, an antihistimene tablet would help (benadryl, claritin, (loratadine) zyrtec)

yeast: typically red with well defined borders, and a hazy white surface. May or may not have clumpy-white discharge. You can try any of the yeast preparations.

Irritant: extremely itchy and red. Try an anti-itch cream (outside only). The drug stores have 1% hydrocortisone.

Good luck. ...Read more

Yeast infection plus burning, tingling in legs (no rash), two small pimple like bumps (1 near groin, 1 on butt) 1 on groin went away already. Related?

Yeast/pimples: Probably NOT. Vaginal yeast infections are exactly that - vaginal. It sounds like you may have had two small infected hair follicles - folliculitis that have at least partially resolved (as this can) on their own. I would avoid trying to "pop" them and use moist heat or simply monitor the remaining one. ...Read more

My boyfriend has a rash on his penis. I had a yeast infection & took fluconizol. I gave him one & him went away. But now it's back.?

Not so simple: Vaginal yeast is not an "infection". It is a proliferation of yeast which is already present in small numbers. The yeast proliferates because of sugars in the environment or because there is a loss of normal bacteria. The most common cause is exposure to antibiotics which kill the bacteria normally competing with yeasts. There are a variety of rashes on the penis. Is he circumcised? Frequently th ...Read more
