Where exactly is the mark?

Can you take a picture?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Its on my inner thigh.
I only noticed today.

Okay; does it itch? Pain?

It will be better if you can share a picture.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Its a little sore but not bad

Thank you.

Looks like inflammatory mark. It can be due to some irritation to the skin (garments/sweating) or can be due to an infection. Since it is more reddish so looks more like an infectious etiology.

I will suggest you to keep this dry and clean.

You topical Neosporin (available over the counter).

Most likely this will improve with in a couple of days.

Avoid rubbing or friction to this area.

Good luck and my sincere wishes for your good health.
