Patient :I'm a 30 year old male experiencing severe pain on the exterior of my perineum for the first time. It is enflamed and extremely sensitive to the touch, visually red and feels raised. This started about 5 days ago after a long round of golf on a hot day, making me think this is an extreme version of 'jock itch'. I tried gold bond powder but the symptoms did not reside. I asked my doctor and he said to try Clotrimazole cream as it may be a fungal/bacterial infection. Nothing is reducing the symptoms. Please help!
