Had a rash that started on the scrotum, spreading to thighs and elbow. Is it jock itch?

Hi, I had a rash that started on the scrotum area, then actually impacted the penis skin (which made it very painful) A milder rash is also starting on the back of my thigh and on the side of my elbow . At first I thought that this may be jock itch , but they say that it usually does not impact the penis itself. What do you think? Thank you for your time...

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have Ringworm infection (Jack Itch)
Please apply topical anti fungal jelly like Meconazole twice daily.

Ensure to wash the entire area with warm water twice daily.

Ensure to wash your inner wares in boiling hot water mixed with antiseptic lotion like Dettol.

I think with this treatment it will get cured within a week
