Raised bumps on groin area, itching, looks like hives. Treatment?

I ve had raised bumps on my groin area for about a month now but I do not think they are herpes because there s no pus. At first I thought it was an allergic reaction to a soap I started using around the time they appear but I have stopped using it soon after and they have not disappeared. The itching is getting worse. They are extremely itcy especially at night. And tonight they look more like hives .

Herpes is a self limiting disorder and not lasts more than two weeks in an immune competent individual.

Your problem of raised papular lesions with severe itching may be due to ring worm, a superficial fungal infection and may look like hives.
It will be easily treated with appropriate anti-fungal topical and systemic preparations available plenty in the market.

You can consult your dermatologist and they will give the exact diagnosis and and appropriate treatment. You have to take the treatment for at least 4 weeks otherwise relapse is possible. Avoid using swimming pool or some type of common bathing and don't share your clothes, soap and towel with others.
You will be alright soon.
