STD or skin infection

Patient : Hey,I'm 18 and a medical student. Please i would like to know if it is possible to get an STD or skin infection from using washing mashines. I'm currently in Uni, the same laundry room is used by almost every student in the dormitory, with about 8 machines... I'm not sure, but i think caught something,i used to wash my boxers in them. Well, its not exactly on my penis or scrotum, but the skin surrounding the area is dry and dark like its burnt, it started from the bottom and has kinda spread up a bit. It itches a bit but that all, no discharge or anything. its just uncomfortable
