Itchy red rashes around groin after sleeping with wet underwear on. Spreading. Remedy?

Hello Doc , Im a 19 yr old Male having a fit and healthy life. About a couple months ago, I slept with a wet underwear on and have developed some extremely itchy, red colored rashes around my groin . Earlier i ignored it thinking they might subside with time. but this hasnt been the case. The rash has grown to my thighs, scrotum and even till the base of my penis. This has become a serious problem with me nowadays. its affecting my social life a lot because i cant stop scratching sometimes, even in public. I have tried antisceptic creams and even Itch creams(itch guard) with no gain. I ve been searching on the net, i think the problem is some fungal infection like Jock Itch. pleas suggest me some good remedy

Hi, it could be a Jock itch. You should try using antifungals creams like clotrimazole twice a day and in the night you should use a topic antifungals (powder). In ten days you will notice relief. Another option it is to consult with a medical doctor to get a prescription of Fluconazole 150 mg once a week for 4 weeks. It will help you with your problem.
