Hi there Collossia. I understand what you must feel & empathise with you. At the outset, are you someone who sweats a lot? The vaginal/groin region plays host to a variety of bacteria both commensal (locally present) & the migratory & opportunistic organisms. To list them to a lay-person may not make much sense & besides, one can google all these things anyways. Why so many tests for STD's ?..your history does not tell me if you are married or anything about your sexual history which may be pertinent from the point of view of hygeine & aquiring organisims. Having said that, might i suggest, you shave the portion, use an antibacterial/antifungal medicated soap for the sensitive areas & leave it on for at least 5-10 mts contact time while using. In addition, please take a look at your deos & body scents etc as very often, i find these do more damage than good. Please feel free to consult me privately or through this portal to take this further should you want to. Regds & hope you feel better & stay happy. Cheers. Dr Praveen Rodrigues MD Dermatologist, Cosmetologist, Venreologist, Bangalore, India.
