Brief Answer:
may be a fungal infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi, Namaskar !

Thanks for the good photograph.
This is a black patch that has developed- you say it is on both sides.

Can you please tell me since when have you noticed this?
Is the skin sensation normal if you pinch or prick it?
Do you remember applying any lotion or a product for some problem?

As per the photo you have given, this looks to be due to a fungal infection and application of something which has discolored the skin. And you must be staying in a humid condition or your job may be required to stand or sit for a long time with full clothes on.
There is a clear-cut line of demarcation.

Thanks doc for your reply...I did not apply any lotion or anything ever and yes you are right that my job is to sit for long hours with full clothes on...the skin does not hurt except occasional minor itch....I noticed this long time back when it was small and ignored it as it did not hurt...the dark patch has increases to a considerable size and it does not itch or bleed....just looks like a dirty patch in my inner tigh near groin...can you please advice on the medicines or cream that can help me to get rid of this???

Brief Answer:
Pure anti-fungal cream only

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your feedback.
You can apply pure anti-fungal lotions like candid.
Please never apply any ointment which contains a combination of other medicines too.
Take any anti-oxidant / multivitamin available over the counter for a long time as it helps to maintain the integrity of the skin.
Use loose pants, and whenever possible keep the area well aerated.

I had casual sex a month ago and a few days after felt the head of my penis burning as well as the part between testicles and anus (urethra?). Some days I felt a sensation like urine incontinency and sometimes i detect discharge which looks and feels very much like pre-semen, but I have found that that discharge is mostly after having sex or just an erection.

I consulted a general medician first and a uro-whatever doctor afterwards. The latter made tests for chlamydia (blood test), VIH, Sifilis, and another urine test (I already had one taken with the first sympthoms). Everything was negative/ok, just mucin was high both times. Now, the first doctor recommended a treatment of Ciprofloxacine with some red pills that made me pee orage color, both for a week. The second doctor gave me some 7 pills that were a mixture of Tinidazole (250 mg), Azitromicine (500 mg) and Fluconazole (37.5) and instructed me to buy 3 more for a total 5 days. Since I was not able to get that combined pill in local drugstore I bought last two separated and Metronidazole instead of Tinidazole. I finished the treatment. Pain has mainwhile relieved mostly, but I still see the discharge. Any suggestions?

Good day. I have noticed a strongish smell after urinating. The pharmacist said its either a fungal or bacterial infection. Diflucan was suggested, but that would only sort out a fungal infection not a bacterial?? i had been on antibiotics a while ago and my life is very stressful right now due to my mother being ill. In the past I would use Diflucan after antibiotics to get rid of the candida which antibiotics cause. NOw there is only a smell of the urine but no actual discharge.
