Brief Answer:
Pictures requested

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for posting on HCM.
I can understand your concern regarding the skin lesions but its difficult to point specific diagnosis in absence of clinical examination.
Skin lesions over groin can definitely be suggestive of some STD.
Therefore, I insist you to post good clinical pictures to me so that I can help you in a better way.
You can mail pictures to YYYY@YYYY
