What causes inner thigh rashes?
Sweat rash can be a cause. Use talcum powder between your thighs on hot or humid days. Obese individuals are more inclined to develop rash due to increased friction along the folds of skin. Reducing weight can alleviate rash along with several other health benefits. Wearing proper fitting undergarments can also stop this, (for males) when your boxers or other undergarments, or even pants and shorts dont fit right the stitching of the inside crotch seam rub and also cause rash. Jock itch can cause inner thigh rash. The rash is caused by a fungus, T rubrum, which starts at the intersection of the groin and thigh usually on both sides. The rash can advance further down the thigh if not treated properly. The rash can appear to be scaly with redness near the fold of the groin. Away from the groin it can be reddish-brown and less or not scaly at all. OTC Treatments: . Tinactin . Lotrimin . Micatin Prevention: . Wear loose fitting clothing made of cotton. . Do not sharing clothing, towels or washcloths. . Dry the groin completely after showering. . Use antifungal powders or sprays once a day. I found that powders, however fine, still are abrasive. If the rash is just caused by friction, balmex (for diaper rashes!)is wonderful to remove the redness and stinging. For long walks, denim seems to stay put better than lighter weight fabrics. I found with all the solutions on the market that address rubbing, sticky and itchy discomfort on the body, (especially the upper inner thighs) Eventually will lead to chafe and rashes. Many related anti-chafe cremes, gels, lotions, sprays, etc. don't last long, Nor do they slim down those bulging areas that make contact rubbing. In addition, Support Garments are too confining and warm... but a New Product called "Thigh Sliders" does address all these issues, in a thin, light weight adhesive area shield. Whether your active, inactive, bedridden, or wheelchair constrained, (men, women and children) who are suffering, will find area support, coverage, relief and comfort... That is, until time is found to exercise, loose those inches and firm up those areas. Thigh Sliders are so soothing on the skin, you will forget they're on. They're also washable, and reusable up to 4 weeks... Read more at http://.www.thighsliders.com Shapewear and bike shorts are ok in cooler weather but in the summer i don't like extra clothes making me hotter i found a product called secret shield at www.skindura.com that works great for me. i wear it on my inner thighs to prevent chafing.
If you have a rash on the inner thigh and it is very itchy irritated and red what can you do?
Given the time of year you posted your question, my guess would bethat your inner thigh rash is most likely heat rash. If you've tried ointments and creams with no success, maybe youshould try powder with corn starch or something like Gold Bondpowder (I'm pretty sure that's the right name) and see if thishelps. Also try to keep the area dry and sweat free. If you wear shorts,find some that won't bunch or chafe the area and that are longenough that your bare thighs don't rub together when you walk. More input from s users: . Just want to make sure this rash is not something caused by anew medication. If it is, you may not be able to do anything aboutit. A physician may be able to prescribe something, but if it couldbe related to a new med, please contact your doctor. . If it is a heat rash, you can buy a jar of Stridex pads andclean the area with those. Stridex has salicylate acid which issupposed to help open blocked pores and glands. A heat rash occurswhen excessive sweating can cause clogged sweat glands. I triedthis, and it really did help it to clear up faster and relieve theitching somewhat. The Gold Bond powder is good for itching also,but it could contribute to the clogged pore/gland situation, and socan ointments. Use creams instead of ointments, if you use anythingon it. . Balmex works wonderfully to relieve the redness andirritation. . Dermaid soft 1% cream" it is amazing. Use 3 times a day. . I will suggest you to use Eurex lotion, one of the bestsolution for almost all sort of itching. Eurax Lotion providesrelief of itching and skin irritation caused by: sunburn, dryeczema, itchy dermatitis, allergic rashes, hives, nettle rash,chicken pox, insect bites and stings, heat rashes and personalitching. Treatment of scabies. . There are so many reasons for this. Wearing nylons cancertainly cause rashes and itchy skin because nylon does notbreathe. Wear cotton slacks out and forget the nylons and see ifthat helps. Perspiring in the inside of the legs can also causerashes and you can use talcum powder (Gold's Talcum Powder) to helpwith this. You don't have to be fat to have your thighs rubtogether so if you are wearing jeans it could even be this. Don'twear your jeans, etc., too tight. Here are some ways you can getrid of this nasty little itch. Run a body temp bath and in ameasuring cup pour 1 cup of Epsom Salts, then pour enough boilingwater into it to dissolve it. Pour into bath water and lay in it(without bubble bath) for 20 minutes to 1/2 hour. This is alsoexcellent for sunburns. Epsom Salts is not like table salt and issoothing to the body. It helps to draw-out infection, etc. A goodlotion to use on your skin is "Aveeno" and many diabetic use itbecause they can get itchy skin. Winter weather can cause itchyskin as well. Works like a charm. Put it on every night. Pleasewatch that rash and if it doesn't go away after you've tried what Ihave recommended please see your doctor. Rashes can get messy andyou can get an infection.
What could cause an itch on the inner left thigh but no visible rash?
It could be irritated skin among other things. The products you currently use to wash you face, cream, shampoo (washes on your face), they could have chemicals in them that are irritating. It could be a reaction to your workplace, foods, products you use.. Usually an itch like this indicates that you have a pinched nerve located on your spinal cord somewhere. Most of the time it will eventually go away on its own, but sometimes could take awhile. The nerves on your spinal cord are connected to different parts of your body so it is hard to tell which nerve is pinched without looking at a reference book about the nervous system.

What could cause a rash and peeling of skin around the inner upper thighs?
I had bright red stripe in the fold of skin between mons and thigh, which appeared two days after I got a wax. It did not itch or burn, but it was BRIGHT RED. It was diagnosed as a candidal skin infection, but as I am allergic to most topical antifungals, I took Fluconazal instead (also called Diflucan--it's an oral medicine for yeast infections.) I took 1 150mg tablet and another 150 mg tablet 24 hours later. I also took 4 doses of Benadryl 6 hours apart and treated the area 3 times a day with Triple Paste (a kind of diaper rash cream, hard to find but worth it!) The Benadryl really helped with the redness, and the Triple Paste seemed to help protect the skin without causing any peeling or staining clothes too badly. Answer Similar to athletes foot, you can get an infection of the groin which makes you very itchy in the inner thigh. See your GP or ask your pharmacist (caniston is usually the answer) Answer I had this as a very allergic reaction to taking NeoCitran against a cold. It peeled off like a sunburn and took almost 2 weeks. Answer I currently have this and have had it several times through my life. I have narrowed it down that I may have an allergy from anti-allergy meds,reaction to dye from new boxers or exposure to someone with strep. It's rather painful and currently is burning like a sunburn with beginning signs of peeling. It usually lasts a week with peeling and then finally disappearing. I was once hospitalized for this as due to the fact it was suspected to be flesh eating disease but obviously couldn't have been because it wasn't moving anywhere else. Spectro Gel works best and apparently apply with Vinegar from a spray bottle gets rid of the burning. Answer A candidal skin infection or yeast infection can be a lifelong battle. You need to get your insides right and your skin will follow. The Diflucan gives the yeast a good hit, but you need to follow up with heavy doses of probiotics to help your body fight the candidis. I found a super probiotic shot- El Viajero Bio-Salud! at my local Walmart, 5 doses for 88 cents. It contains 12.7 billion live active cultures including Lactobacilius. This is nearly 4 times the amount in most yogurts. You may also find a beverage called Kefir beneficial. It has changed my life. Kefir contains beneficial yeast as well as the friendly probiotic bacteria found in yogurt. Loaded with vitamins and minerals, it contains easily digestible complex proteins. Kefir is a balanced and nourishing food that contributes to a healthy immune system. Kefir has been used to help patients suffering from AIDS, herpes, cancer and chronic fatigue. People with sleep disorders benefit from kefir's tranquilizing effects, as do people with depression. Kefir helps to prevent intestinal disorders, promotes bowel movement, reduces flatulence and creates a healthier digestive system. Kefir is a great remedy for digestive disorders. In fact, kefir's cleansing effect on the body helps establish a balanced inner ecosystem for optimum health and longevity. Hope this helps. I have suffered for years with what I know now was yeast infections. It can cause numerous symptoms, from diarrhea, bloating, and gas to fatigue, insomnia, mental confusion and depression. I've seen a succession of doctors, who never connected the skin rash with what was going on with my gut. I even saw a gastroenterologist who had diagnosed irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and Diverticulitis. For the rash, I keep a spray bottle with water and a little vinegar to use after a shower or if the itching gets intense. I also use a colloidal silver salve, as the prescription ointments are irritating to my skin.

What is a rash that you've had about 1 year on the left and right sides of your inner thighs that looks like white circles -dots in rows- and could it be syphilis or HIV or jock itch?
Answer . It wouldn't be syphillis or HIV. Syphillis causes a small sore that goes away after a couple of weeks. It will cause another rash within a couple of months or more, that is dark and round - usually on the plams of your hands or the bottoms of your feet. I can't think of anything having to do with HIV that would cause a white rash that appears in lines.. Have you lost a lot of weight recently? Could it simply be stretch marks? Could it be an ingrown hair or some other irritation that is chaffing? If it looks like dry skin, try a moisturizer and see if it goes away after a week or two. If you're very concerned, go see a Doctor.. Depending on how athletic you, are your inner thighs could be rubbing against each other chaffing especially when it is hot. Use gold bond power. You want to be careful of any fungal infection. They love warm body temps.

What causes the little red itchy bumps that appear on your neck back legs stomach and inner thighs?
Answer . Sounds like you have an allergy to something so keep a log of what you eat and it could be hives. If it's starting to burn/itch and getting worse (starting to fill with fluid) you could have the start of shingles. Shingles usually follow nerves (it will look like a red, blistered line). My bet is you have hives. It's best to go to your doctor and be diagnosed before it gets worse.. Answer . This sounds a lot like something I got once while working in schools. I researched forever to find the answer. The best I could come up with was pityriasis rosea. The bumps were light red and they were worst on my back and chest, but they spanned in all the other areas that were noted in the post.

Why would you have raised skin on your inner thigh in the form of a circle and it itches?
Answer to your itchy skin circle . \nSounds to me like you have ring worm!\n. \nRingworm is a contagious fungus infection that can affect the scalp, the body (particularly the groin), the feet, and the nails. Despite its name, it has nothing to do with worms. The name comes from the characteristic red ring that can appear on an infected person's skin. Ringworm is also called Tinea.\n. \nRingworm is caused by several different fungus organisms that all belong to a group called "Dermatophytes." A health-care provider can diagnose Ringworm by examining the site of infection with special tests.\n. \nRingworm is spread by either direct or indirect contact. People can get Ringworm by direct skin-to-skin contact with an infected person or pet. People can also get Ringworm indirectly by contact with objects or surfaces that an infected person or pet has touched, such as hats, combs, brushes, bed linens, stuffed animals, telephones, gym mats, and shower stalls. In rare cases Ringworm can be spread by contact with soil.\n. \nRingworm of the scalp usually begins as a small pimple that becomes larger, leaving scaly patches of temporary baldness. Infected hairs become brittle and break off easily. Yellowish crusty areas sometimes develop.\n. \nRingworm of the body shows up as a flat, round patch anywhere on the skin except for the scalp and feet. The groin is a common area of infection (groin Ringworm). As the rash gradually expands, its center clears to produce a ring. More than one patch might appear, and the patches can overlap. The area is sometimes itchy.\n. \nRingworm of the foot is also called athlete's foot. It appears as a scaling or cracking of the skin, especially between the toes.\n. \nRingworm of the nails causes the affected nails to become thicker, discolored, and brittle, or to become chalky and disintegrate.\n. \nRingworm can be treated with fungus-killing medicine. The medicine can be in taken in tablet or liquid form by mouth or as a cream applied directly to the affected area.\n. \nInfected persons should follow these steps to keep the infection from spreading:\n. \nComplete treatment as instructed, even after symptoms disappear. \nDo not share towels, hats, clothing, or other personal items with others. \nMinimize close contact with others until treated. \nMake sure the person or animal that was the source of infection gets treated.. Answer . \nSounds like a rash.
