Posted on: 05/27/2009

You have a rash, also called a dermatitis. It can have many causes, including fungi or yeast infection, or mild bacterial infection or irritation due to sweating. It could also be a reaction to something you are wearing -- soap or underwear. It is important to have this diagnosed. The treatment is usually a cream and attention to good hygiene. Please see a doctor.
