Rash...

Over the past couple of days I've had a rash on the left side of my testicles which seems to be affecting the inside of the left leg slightly as well. Its hard to tell exactly where to locate it. It kind of reaches to the middle of them though, and its a burning/itching sensation. I haven't had any sexual contact in awhile so I'm guessing its not an std. Before it started appearing I had been in my pool a few times which I haven't been in awhile so I was wondering if maybe the clorine could have an effect like that? But its only on one side so I'm not sure. I've tried some cream on it at night and it seems to get better in the morning but after walking around during the day it seems to irratate it more and it gets to be about the same around night time. What could this be and how can I get it to go away?

Re: Rash...

Sounds like good old fashioned "JOCK ITCH" to me. Go to the drug store, there are sprays and creams for this condition. Its summer...Hot and sweaty.

Re: Rash...

This isn't something that will continue to trouble me from now on though is it? I dont know much about it. Don't think I've ever had it before, but a friend of mine says he always gets it bad all year long so I'm hoping that it wont stay like this.

Re: Rash...

Yeast aka candidia aka jock itch could very well have come from the pool or it could just be from being hot and sweaty. Remember yeast loves a warm moist place and with summer here any place that has skin on skin can cause yeast to flare up. Women often get it under the breasts at this time of year due to skin on skin. Once you get it cleared up keep those areas clean and dry if possible and you may not be bothered by it again.

Re: Rash...

Wet bathing suits and summer heat often cause such a rash and having had it....they can be quite painful and annoying. Once you've got it cured you should have no more problems but you'll need to use something to prevent it (more about that later!) The best thing I've found is LotriminAF spray. You can get it at any pharmacy department of any store. Follow the directions and use it until the rash is gone. Then in order to keep it from returning use powder around your scrotum and crotch area to keep that area dry as sweat can cause the same thing. Gold Bond powder is really good for this but regular old baby powder will do the trick!
