Fungal infections in the groin and buttocks are commonly referred to as ringworm, jock itch or tinea cruris. They occur when certain types of fungi, such as dermatophytes, grow and multiply in warm and moist areas of the body, like the groin. Symptoms of a fungal infection in the groin may include: Red, itchy rash: The affected area often becomes red, itchy, and inflamed. The rash may have well-defined edges and small, raised blisters or scales. Itching and burning: The rash can cause intense itching and a burning sensation, which can be uncomfortable. Peeling or cracking skin: The skin in the groin area may become dry, flaky, or start to peel. Odor: Fungal infections can sometimes cause an unpleasant odor. If the symptoms persist or worsen despite self-care measures, it is advisable to consult a healthcare professional or dermatologist. They can provide a proper diagnosis and recommend appropriate treatment options, which may include prescription-strength antifungal medications.
