Fungal infection or ringworm. When occurs in groin, called as jock itch. Usually, fungal infection is common in most areas of the body like skin folds. It's mostly circular or round in appearance. Maybe red or black in color. Treatment depending on the type and severity. Avoid sharing clothes, towels, and soap; sweating also increases it. As it has to be differentiated from eczema and infection, its a must to see and confirm the diagnosis for proper treatment. So, please send photos of the affected area by direct online consultation for accurate diagnosis and treatment.
