 Types of Groin Rash   Common Reasons for Irritated Skin

There are many different kinds of groin rashes and causes of them, so you will want to be educated if you have one yourself. One of the most common causes of a groin rash is an STD or sexually transmitted disease. there are many different STDs which can present in the form of a rash, so it is important to get tested as soon as possible if you suspect this to be the cause. Usually the rash will present as hive-like bumps clustered together in tight groups. the rash may or may not itch; however if it does the best thing you can do is to simply resist, because it will only make it worse. it is important to see a doctor to get diagnosed since these can be contagious. Scabies, herpes and veneral warts can be passed to others.

Simply having dry skin can be enough for a groin rash to form. If you have especially dry and/or sensitive skin, you may want to think about investing in a good lotion or moisturizer which will be able to help you out with the rash you are experiencing. Rashes are certainly not uncommon with those who have dry skin, so if you have other parts of your body that tend to be dry most of the time, you may want to consider taking a trip to your dermatologist. they will be able to suggest what to use in case it is a matter of dry skin versus something more serious.

Heat rash is yet another explanation as to why you have a groin rash. sometimes when temperatures get especially high, sweat can sometimes clog up the pores, causing a rash to form. Although most of the time they are not serious, they can itch and become bothersome if treatment isn’t started soon after it forms. it is important to keep your skin hydrated in this kind of situation, which can mean applying a moisturizer or even just finding a place to cool down. Heat rashes become extremely common in the summer months, so if you get one there is no need to worry. Working out and building up a sweat can also result in a rash in this area.

Another explanation as to why you might have a groin rash is contact dermatitis. Usually the most recognizable signs of this condition are blisters on the skin, redness, itching, and inflammation. Typically it occurs when sensitive skin comes into direct contact with certain substances. Contact dermatitis is also sometimes called allergy dermatitis, because an allergic reaction is what is responsible for setting off the rash. Many people who get this rash do not even realize that they are allergic to the substance in question. sometimes though it is something like poison oak or poison ivy. certain pieces of jewelry can trigger an allergic reaction on the skin as well, which is why it is important to get a scratch test to see what you are allergic to.
