Tender rash that started on buttocks near thigh spreading onto legs. How to treat it ?

I have a rash that started on my buttocks near my thigh and has spread in 2 other places on my leg. It doesn t really itch as much as it is tender feeling. Like a bruise , but it is not purple in color. It looks pink and the spot on my buttocks is one large bump with a bunch of little ones around it. The ones on my leg are a little group of maybe 3-5 bumps. Not feeling ill or fevered. It s just irritating. I ve been putting neosporin on it since I realized it was there, which was yesterday. Doesn t seem to be helping at this point. Any idea what it could be and how I should treat it?

Thanks for the query,
You might be suffering from a fungal infection,
In this area it is called as Tinea cruris.

It usually as itchy rash but soon gets infected and develops pain.

Only neosporin wont help.
Treatment with anti fungals might be required

Please meet a dermatologist for final diagnosis and treatment
