First of all, Hello!

Im new here and im on holiday so im hoping for some help here...

I have a rash, its on my inside thigh, its red, itchy and quite uncomfortable when my crotch is hot.

I will try and describe it as best I can:
It looks like a pissed off stretch mark, its about 2 inches long, 0.5 cm wide, in a line.


Any ideas? Would love to get a cream from pharmacy to get rid of it. Should I post a photo?

Thanks blush

Hi, welcome to Hw...I'm sorry that this is giving you grief. A rash can be caused by a bunch of things but usually a cortisone cream can help alleviate the discomfort of a rash. It might be a heat rash or a friction rash by what you are describing. You can post a photo if you like but please remember that this is a PG-13 site :)

You might have a heat rash. Get some diaper rash ointment to create a soothing barrier.

Hi, thanks for the quick reply, my friend has now told me they have ring worm!

Can you get ringworm or other fungal infections in a straight line?

I didnt say before but it is reddy/purple in color.

I will post a photo soon.

My daughter just recently had ringworm and hers was in a raise red circular pattern with a clear center all over her torso and a few on her arms.
