Have vaginal rash, itchy, bumps with moisture secretion. Told consult dermatologist. Suggestions?

Hi. I have some sort of rash in my vaginal area. It is bumps as well that seem to sometimes secrete a moisture. It really itches very bad. I went to the gynecologist and they said it isnt herpes and since she said it wasnt dry then it wasnt exycema (which i have by the way) so she recommended I go to a dermatologist because she didnt know what is was. But i think that is weird to have a dermatologist look at your vagina when they normally look at acne on the face lol do you know what this is? Do you think I should go to a dermatologist or another gynecologist?

Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum

Firstly, i would like to clear your query that dermatologists are also venereologists ie they deal with all sexually transmitted diseases also..
Now as far as your present problem is concerned, you seem to be having Candidiasis of the groin region..
First some general precautions:
Wear cotton clothes and undergarments in order to reduce the sweating
Do not apply any kind of oils / moisturizing lotion over the affected area
Now you dont need to apply aloe vera cream over the affected region.
Just give warm saline compresses over the affected area twice a day and then apply clotrimazole cream
also , you will need to take oral antifungals in the form of fluconazole 150 mg once weekly for 2 weeks...
In case of severe itching, take some antihistamine like levocetrizine once a day .
If inspite of the above measures, the lesions continue to persist or increase , then you might have to see a dermatologist for proper assessment and management

Hope it helps
