Brief Answer: Wait and observe with pain killers... Detailed Answer: Hi, Pain originating from the groin on the right side can be due to musculoskeletal causes, urogenital condition, a hernia and rarely due to appendicular condition. Now as you also have pain in your genitalia, I suspect this might either be due to urogenital infection or a muscular ache. The possibility of infection is higher if - you have a crampy ache - you have increased urination / painful urination - you have genital skin changes (itching, rashes, discharge) At this point of time, when there are no other symptoms I would start you on antiinflammatory drugs. Ibuprofen which is over the counter available drug has good antiinflammatory properties. You may want to start it - 200mg twice a day. Rest well. Support your genitalia with loose clothing and drink plenty of fluids. I would also refrain you from any sexual activity. Watch the progress of symptoms. Keep me updated. If the symptoms are severe and troubling you, you may also plan to meed your doctors. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications. Regards

Brief Answer: It could be the cause or an associated complaint.. Detailed Answer: Hi, Vomiting may be the cause or an associated complaint. But if you are not vomiting further, I wouldn't be concerned. Redness on the thigh is not significant symptom yet. I would suggest you to start proton pump inhibitor like prilosec OTC before taking ibuprofen. You can use this combination for the next 2-3 days as you watch out the progress. Also look out for skin changes on the thigh. Most benign condition respond to this regimen of treatment in a weeks time. So I would be concerned and seek medical attention if pain persist for more than a week. Hope this information helps you. Feel free to ask for clarifications before you close this discussion. Regards
