Hello. I'm Dr Chip
Thanks for your question and I'm reviewing it.
I'll be back in a moment with and answer or a request for more information

I am unable to post a photo

Do you have a rash there and, if so, can you describe it?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
There is no rash but the soreness is very bright red and wet.


That sounds like a fungal skin infection that often happens there

Not any STD and no real trigger for it

For now you can try an antifungal over the counter cream like clotrimazole twice a day for two weeks along with some oral Claritin or Zyrtec

If that doesn't clear it up you'll need prescription ketoconazole cream from your doctor

Please let me know if you need any more information
