Rash in groin area, itchy, inflamed, small bumps, upper back itchiness. Treatment?

I have a rash that started in the groin area and was very itchy and inflamed with small bumps. I saw a doctor and he prescribed a cream which helped reduce the affected areas symptoms by 90% but still a little itchy at times. Also on my upper back it has become itchy as well, somewhat like when you get sunburn and the skin starts to itch right before it peels. What might this be?

Hi there. Please re-visit that doctor. You may require a change of cream. The lesion on the back appears unrelated to the groin problem. However, in the interim while waiting for the doctor, please do try to apply the same ointment on your back. Do hope this helps. Am guessing the cream given was a multipurpose general cream. A moisturiser like aloevera that is 'natural' may be added to your regime. Do hope it helps , else feel free to contact us through our 'ask a doctor' icon & upload photographs of your lesions please. Cheers & Godspeed!
