Fungal skin infections are caused by microscopic fungus that proliferate due to ideal conditions .

  • Aspergillus
  • Cryptococcus
  • Histoplasma
  • Pneumocystis
  • Stachybotrys

1) Candidacies or Yeast Infection - Caused by yeast (type of fungus) infecting the skin or mucous membrane, living in the body in dormant state. It is only when they get optimum conditions, do they multiply and get converted into Candidacies.

Symptoms: Includes fungal skin rash, pus filled patches, pimples and aggravated itch on the infected area.

A rather chronic fungal skin infection causes skin discoloring and occurrence of reddish and brown patches on the epidermis. Symptoms: Non itchy rashes on body with reddish tan colored patches.

Causes for this fungal skin infection are malnourishment, poor hygiene and warm moist climate, and can be transmitted from an infected person. Symptoms: Itchy ring like scaly patches which later forms pus filled blisters. If it occurs on nail they get crumpled, discolored and thickened. If it is in scalp you can loose scalp hair and get bald patches.

Other than the location....

It sounds a lot like ringworm, which is the same fungus that causes jock itch (I've never had jock itch, I have the wrong parts). If so, all you need is OTC Lamisil after showering and before bed.
From Wikipedia:
"As the common name for this condition implies, it causes itching or a burning sensation in the groin area, thigh skin folds, or anus. It may involve the inner thighs and genital areas, as well as extending back to the perineum and perianal areas.
Affected areas may appear red, tan, or brown, with flaking, peeling, or cracking skin

Smell and rash between my legs

2007-05-03 22:18:43 by jp1993

I have a rash between my legs, it is on my inner thighs in the crotch region right up next to my scrotum. It is pink and patchy looking. Sometimes I get little pimples in the area too that then go away without coming to a 'head'. Anyway, I thought it was jock-itch because I had athletes foot at the time so I self-medicated with an OTC anti-fungal spray. That didn't really help, so I went to my doctor. He wasn't available so I saw his Nurse Practitioner and she gave me an rx for a cream called 'clotrimazole'. I used the lotion religiously and it seemed like the rash was going away but now like 8 months later it is back again

On one visit I was diagnosed with a fungal skin rash, a fungal nail infection and thrush again only to have my theory of a "fungal" common thread dismissed.
