What could rashes from abrasion be?

Hi. I had a case of MRSA recently that ive recovered from. But where one of the abrasions used to be, i have a itchy rash of bumps on the skin on that region. It is on my left inner thigh. I had a blood test for hsv 1 and 2 and the results were negative. What could this be?

Hi,

Itchy rash on inner thigh may be fungal infection most probably.. called tinea cruris. However, consult the dermatologist for the diagnosis and proper treatment. I would recommend you to apply antifungal cream and to take antifungal tablets and antihistaminics under observation of doctor. Avoid soap bath. Keep the area dry.

Hope this helps.
