Have you had this before?Have you been diagnosed with an STD?Have you had a new sexual partner before this began?If you upload a pic it would be easier to have a better idea

Got itWhat have you tried on it so far? Anything topical- like an antifungal cream?

Not put anything on it didnt really know what it was so didnt know what was the best thing to go for
This may be a fungal rash- the first thing I would try is an antifungal cream- that you can get over the counter in any pharmacy. I suspect that is the most likely, based on the appearance.If that does not work, the next step may be to do a small skin biopsy to make an alternate diagnosis- there are several inflammatory conditions of the skin- forms of eczema- that can look similar- and that would be my second though.I hope that helpsPLease supply a rating if this answers your question

Yeah it is more reasuring everything you see on google just basically tells you yeah youve got cancer your going to die and i just needed some sort of resurance to make sure it wasnt anything serious thank you ill try find time to get some cream
It does not look like cancer, and cancer does not develop that fastTry the cream first- if not resolving, I'd say see a dermatologist for a more careful in person examinationPlease supply a ratingThanks and good luck
