Re: herpes or jock itch???
Your symptoms sound more like jock itch, a fungal Candida infection of the skin. It can appear on the penis as well as groin. You might try one of the OTC creams for this, or if the groin area is very hairy, a spray powder, such as Micatin spray, will not make such a gooey mess. Air ventilation and keeping the area dry is important, so cotton boxers would help. It takes about 2 weeks for this to clear up with diligent use of antifungals twice a day. I would keep using it until the rash is 100% gone or it may come back.
