Red, itchy and sore lump in my groin Jock itch, please suggest remedy

Red, itchy and sore lump in my groin - Jock itch, eczema, or? Hi, I have a red, itchy and sore lump in my groin area and now it is always wet like water/sweat that is always going out of the sweat glands of the whole affected area. A few weeks ago the liquid was quite sticky, but now it became like a water that easily drips. I thought this was jock itch so I tried to apply Nizoral cream, the old skin peeled off but the lump, itch and wetness is still here. I have a second thoughts that this is eczema but it doest fit the description of dry scaly skin. However when the liquid dries, it seems like it becomes scaly like a newly dried wound. Do you know what this is or any advice for treatment? It becomes very itchy when I put soap on it.

Hi!,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
The most common condition in groins when it is sweaty is Fungal infection called tinea cruris.This needs an anti fungal treatment.Take oral tab AF(150mg) once a wk for 4 wks.You can continue using nizoral cream at night as you were using earlier.Also start abzorb powder over the affected area in morning.I am sure you would be all right with this ,if not let us know ,so that we can guide you further.
take care ,
