Question: Here is my full story

Last month during Good Friday long weekend and I had sex with 3 different woman, all met me online dating website. and with 3 to 5 days after my last sexual contact I started feeling really sticky in my groin area and on my scrotum. I feel like its a rash but its not visible because my skin color is dark and I cant see it. I only feel minor pinch sometime when I sit or stand in certain position. after a month it still exist. I have been to doctor and they say its not STD and fungal infection. But one of the girl I had sex with not answering my call or messages.

but what rings bells in my mind. It never happened to me before. I am fairly clean person. If its not sexually transmitted than how I got it.{FYI I used condom all the time when I had sex} Is it because I was spending everyday 2 to 3 hours in gym most of the time my private area remained wet and covered. I would also like to know how Lotriderm cream is effective for it. I did not use it properpy though only applied it for 3 to 4 days. My groin area got better but scrotum remained same and than stopped using it. But once again as the temperature is rising it came back and I stopped using the cream because sometimes I feel it made my glans burning a liltle. Its do get better when temperature drops.

When I used Lotrderm my groin area immediately got cured but scrotum did not. I would also like to is it communicable sexually or by any other means?

As all the intercourses are protected the chances of STDs are nil.
The symptoms described all point towards fungal infection or intertrigo. It is unlikely due to STDs.
Wear loose cotton inner wears.
Continue lotriderm.
Use antifungal dusting powder like candid or absorb after bath .
Sweat increases the chances of fungal infection.
Keep area dry.
Fungal infection is known for recurrence.

You can get back for any clarification.
