This is in infection.
It is typical of cornybacterium.
Your doctor can give you a prescription cream to get rid of this
If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.

Hair folical infection ?
It itches yeast ?
I use emuaid is that ok ?
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.
It is more likely cornybacterium than yeast in this location.
A common problem.
It does not look like folliculitis even though possible.
No, you need to see a doctor and get a correct cream.
I would need to see a positive rating at this point.
Come back as needed.

Connected to my running. Sweat ? Our house is very clean. Excellent rating coming

Can I buy a cream ? In the uk it takes a month to get a doc appointment.
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.
Connected to cornybacterium.
Of course your doctor should do a general health check.
It is not serious otherwise.
A swab is needed for the lab, or microscoping exam.
Otherwise which cream is a guess.

Of coarse. I suffer health anxiety hence the reason I get regular checks. I just don't want to panic all night thinking it s health related I am a panicker!!! I'm afraid.My blood work rules out underlying conditions.
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.
I understand the anxiety.This you need to discuss with your doctor.No, that little bit of blood work does not rule out all underlying conditions, just most.Thyroid , for example, is a separate test.This rash in this area, in fact, is pretty common.I don't suspect an underlying condition.See my add services offer if you want to go further into anxiety, the treatments, natural treatments etc.I am revising it now.
