Patient : I have been really itchy in the lower region of my body recently. Especially in the shower, my stomach, inner front thights and a bit down to my feet, as well as my crotch are itchy and these areas get red rashy when I itch them. Also the main thing is areas near the tip of my penis are itchy and there have been some red sores 4 total, two have vanished. I use jock itch athletes foot cream and neosporin which have worked a bit but obviously not curing the problem. I shower everyday. It started after a period when I was running and sweating over 3 miles a day on the treadmill and sometimes not taking a shower right away. Also there was irritation from my underwear on my genitals from the abrasion. I thought it was most likely jock itch, male yeast infection, or thrush but there is a small possibility of std I guess. Since I am not in my home country healthcare is complicated so I'd rather figure it out myself rather than visit a doc. Any info much appreciated! Do you know what it could be?
