Dear dorothya , skin lesions are best diagnosed by examination but your short history suggest that both of you both have got fungal infection / or scabies consult any dermatologist you both need systemic drugs plus local applicants under supervision and certain hygienic precautions your doc. will suggest you. good luck

Hi thanks for the question.Your boyfriend is having itching around his genitalia and other parts of body,you think this ring worm and you have also started itching around your vagina.
There are few conditions which can cause itching around the genital area and rest of the body.

The No1 cause could be Scabies which doesn't produce rash ,but itching over rabies can produce rash

No 2 can be taenia corporis what you call as ring worm.Both of you are advised to consult dermatologist to establish cause of itching and rash.Hope i answered your question.
