Proper Handling Of Pain And Itching Around The Groin?
Hello, good morning, I want to ask around my husband’s genitals or groin, there is a wound like a watery bag and the surrounding area is reddish to form like an island and it feels itchy … I was given an itch-relieving powder but after that it recurred … that’s why I got Herpes or what ?? and handling like what .. thank you
Hi Camilla, Thank you for the question.
A skin rash that appears on the groin can be caused by:
tinea cruris, which is a fungal infection of the skin from herpes zoster impetigo scab. Consult your doctor first to find out the exact cause of this complaint. The doctor needs to ask about this complaint and examine the skin rash in question to determine the cause. The treatment given by the doctor will be determined after this examination. Without this examination it is impossible for the doctor to know the cause.
Please advise your husband to:
avoid scratching the itchy area avoid sharing towels and clothes with others avoid wearing tight pants always keep the genital area clean by showering and changing underwear every day don't break the water bag that appears use calamine lotion or salicylic powder to reduce itching Hopefully this information is useful.
