For the past couple of months I’ve been diagnosed repeatedly

Patient: For the past couple of months I’ve been diagnosed repeatedly of epididimitis, but Im having a rash come Up on both inner thighs and on the tops of my feet. Could the feet part be poison oak or ivy and the thighs just be Jock itch. I’ve tried antifungal on my thighs for the past 3 days but no help. Could it be syphilis?
