    Red face Groin rash, uuuuggggghhhh!

    I have a terrible rash in my groin area. I had the same problem last year around this time, so I'm guessing it's just a summer thing. But man does it itch. There's large red patches and then there's little red dots that look very similar to zits which itch like crazy. Anyone know of a way I could cure this? I've been putting cream on it, but it doesn't seem to be working. How can I prevent this from happening next time? Any help?

    Thanks for your time.

    Totally sounds like a heat related rash. Remember, we sweat there and it stays pretty warm. I'd suggest a couple of things. First, you can use powder, GoldBond works well. After a shower and getting dressed sprinkle it all around your scrotum and groin area. This may help keep things dry and prevent more problems. As to treatment, I'd try some Lotrimin AF spray. You can buy this in any pharmacy, I've used it and it works wonders! If it persists, a conversation with the pharmacist may help....that's how I found the lortimin and its cheaper than the doc! Good luck!
