What caused an itchy bruise on my upper thigh?

Hi, I m an 18 year old female and about 2 weeks ago I noticed my upper thigh was very itchy so checked it out and it was a rash that looked like blood spots and after about a week it has turned into a good sized bruise and it seems to be increasing in size. Would appreciate some insight. Please & thank you!

Hi,

Itching in groin area with bruise like patch may be fungal infection most probably. However, consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment. Antifungal tablets and cream may be considered.

Hope this helps.
