Our expert says:
Monique, it’s difficult to say what the problem is without being able to examine you, but it sounds like it might be a superficial fungal infection called tinea cruris. You can get an anti-fungal cream like Lamisil® from the pharmacy and apply it for a week and see what happens. You can also take an anti-inflammatory/pain killer combination like Myprodol®, Mypaid® or Mybulen® to help with the inflammation and pain. If it doesn’t go away or if it gets worse, you will have to see your doctor. Good luck.
