Question: I am not sure if I have jock itch, balantis or herpes. I have been suffering from what I think has been jock it for a really long time. I have tried to self medicate but it has not really worked out. Recently I developed what looks like a pimple on my lip. You can imagine how I could be freaking out right now. i do not have cluster of blisters, or pus when I have popped and I do not have any blisters on my growing or penis. I recently developed a red spot on my uretha. from the research I have done it looks a like it could be balantis. I plan on going to the doctor soon but i am really feeling discouraged right now.

Brief Answer:
Infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the query.
I really understand your situation and anxiety.
Stay cool and I am going to help you with answers.
I checked the pictures.
I do not see any pimple on the lip.
However there is jock itch in the groin, this is because of fungus growing. YOu need a Clotrimazole ointment over the area. Keep the area dry and clean. Do not wear undergarments while at sleep. This will take a week's time to heal.
The tip of penis is red which means you have urethritis. This is because of bacterial infection sexually transmitted as well if you are sexually active.
You need a course of antibiotics for this. Sometimes the urethritis could be fungal cause.
All of the above can be treated easily by taking early treatment from the doctor.
Please meet one.

I have developed mild itch all over my body, scalp and face. I noticed some small dark spots on some places which are very few. Earlier, around 2 months back I suffered from fungal infection near groin and inner thighs for which dermatologist prescribed clotrimazole, ketocanazole and fulcunazole and it was cured.Now mild itch started again this time all over body including groin and scrotum. I am 23 years old male.once in a year or two i suffers from such skin problem due to which my inner thighs and butts have become darker.plz suggest some solution

I just recently had ringworm on my thigh and I treated it with clotrimazole lotion and tea tree oil. I did that for 4 weeks, but now I am getting these light red dry patches on my legs. They don t itch, like the ringworm did, but I am wondering if it s still that, or if it may be something else.

hello I was wondering how coud I remove post hyper pigmentation on the base of my penis , I went to a clinic and was told it was a rash(equivalent to a womens yeast infection I guess) and was told to use A cream of clotrimazole cream 1% and it helped remove the rash but now I got light spots( had em for about 4 months now) and was hoping for something to reduce or remove them?

I m a 32year male, generally healthy. Literally over a night or two, I have developed a red, raised rash on the skin between my butt cheeks. I originally thought it was haemorrhoids and so tried zinc oxide and lidocaine cream, after bathing them in salt water, but felt it started to spread further onto the cheek and up towards my scrotum. I therefore thought it could be fungal nappy rash (due to sweating and hot weather) and so bought clotrimazole 2%, which I have ude for 2 days now, but to little improvement. Any thoughts please? Thank you!
