Hello Arief, Thank you for the question.
The complaint that you are presenting might be ringworm. Ringworm is a fungal infection that causes a reddish skin rash with a thickened edge. This rash will feel itchy. Ringworm can occur in several parts of the body such as the head, face, or groin. This condition can be transmitted by direct contact with patients or through indirect contact with contaminated objects. Someone will more easily experience ringworm if you have the habit of using tight clothing, sharing personal belongings, and because of the hot and humid air.
In addition to ringworm, your complaint can also be caused by eczema, contact dermatitis, or scabies.
You should consult with your doctor directly first. A doctor's examination is needed to determine the cause of your symptoms. The doctor needs to examine the skin directly in the area, if necessary the doctor will do skin scraping and examine it to determine the cause. After confirming the cause, the new doctor can provide appropriate treatment.
For now, you can use salicyl powder or natural lotion to relieve itching. It is also recommended that you keep your genital area and groin dry and clean. Avoid using tight pants.
I hope this helps.
