Sure would appreciate your thoughts on a cure for this. It is both embarassing and painful....
hmmm....is there any burning at all? my first thought is yeast. If that's the case I'd be drying it with hair dryer, using anti-fungal cream (even the female type creams work here). Don't reuse towels/washcloths, keeps those undergarments changed of course. Sweating definitely irritates, so try to keep cool!
I'd switch to Dove non-perfume soap too. THis is ph balanced.
Hope it helps.
