Noticed spots and rashes on inner thigh and around penis

About 6 months ago i woke up in the morning and my groin area and underwear was soaking wet...i had thought i had had a bad or wet dream??? During that time I had worn an old bathing suit to the beach with a pair of underwear with it and had been doing a lot of activities outside in hot weather...Shortly after that i developed a rash on my inner thighs around my penis...it was sore and itched for a short time and even turned to a dark leathery color... A period of time went by and it went away...About a week ago i woke up again with wet underwear and now in same spots on inner thigh it is starting to turn a little sore and red again...Im going to be getting tested for STD's... Am I over reacting and is this just a case of jock itch? a rash? or bad size underwear?

Hi
Thank you for asking HCM
I have gone through your query. Your problem is most likely tenia corporis, a fungal infection. For such condition i treat with clotrimazole or miconazole ointment for local application for 1 to 2 weeks and Fluconazole tablet weekly once for 4 weeks for stopping recurrance.I also advice them to wear dry and loose underwear and not to wear sweaty or wet cloths for long time. Anyhow its better to confirm your problem by a doctor preferably a dermatologist.Hope this may help you.
Let me know if you have any further query.
