Long time lurker - hate that this is my first post... I've had this "rash" in my groin area for a few years now, and only recently (five months ago) brought it up to a GP. I always chalked it up to a heat rash, as I sweat a lot. At first, he said it was a yeast infection, gave me a pill and some cream - all did nothing. Fast forward to this week, when I see him, mention that I still have it - he looks at it again, very quickly, just like last time, and says something about the follicles (referring to folliculitis I assume), but on my paperwork has it down as balanitis xerotica obliterans (BXO), and gives me an antibiotic to take for a little over a week. I get home, and I do what people do these days and Google BXO, and it looks *nothing* like what I have going on, so it has me a bit flustered, irritated and whatnot. I'm circumcised, the rash has no relation to the head of my penis, blah blah blah. Attached are a few pictures, wondering if anyone from here can possibly offer any suggestions... If these antibiotics do nothing (which, they aren't yet, and I know they take time) then I am curious should I ask him to do cultures or whatever, or just give up on him and go to a dermatologists, or something? Any advice? From what I've gathered, it's not contagious, doesn't spread by contact to anywhere else on my body, only slowly spread in the general area over the few years I have had it - just itches, especially more when I sweat, reddish, small 'blisters' (had pus come out of one or two before), and sometimes feels like there are knots under the skin, which go away. Sorry for the grossness, but figured this was a good place to ask, which might offer helpful input. P.S. Promise the good pics once I get this taken care of...look forward to contributing to an awesome site! -Cheers!
