If the rash is in a circle shape, very red and angry looking or even dark brown and on the edge of the rash there is small red pimples - this is caused by a fungal infection. You need to see your Doctor for this. If the rash is on the top inside area of your thighs and this is the first time it has happened, you will also need to see your Doctor for this.

Meanwhile change underwear daily, wash twice a day with non-perfumed soap and apply Sudocrem cream to the affected area. Also make sure you towel dry properly.

In the case of a fungal infection, medication is required to treat this. Usually Timodene or a anti-fungal cortisteroid cream which will be prescribed by your Doctor. Don't let anyone share your flannes or towels and also disinfect the toilet seat after use so you do not spread the fungal infection.

In the case of a "sweat rash" you need to wash the affected area twice a day, pay particular attention to making sure you towel dry thoroughly and also apply Sudocrem cream 3 times a day. If there is no improvement in 5 days, see your Doctor. Avoid nylon underwear and try to keep the affected area dry.

If it's hot and your sweaty and your thighs touch, then it is the friction of the rubbing when you walk, it will cause a red sometimes bumpy rash and it hurt, if this is not what caused yours then talk to your doctor but if it is a really good lotion will work nicely, an oh yeah it will happen in cold dry weather as well. If you wear jeans or tight fitting clothing, then it can cause a "heat rash" or "friction rash" and in men it can cause in-grown hairs. A good lotion for this is "Aveeno" (stops the itching and get's rid of the redness.) Also get Epsom Salts (not like actual table salt) from your pharmacist and use a good cup in your bath water (don't have the water too hot) and lay in it for a good 20 mins., dry yourself off gently and apply the Aveeno. Epsom Salts is great for wounds and sun burn.

What is a rash that is between the legs and has red stretch mark looking dots and slightley itches?

It soundslike friction rash to me, do your legs rub together when u walk - if so ensure that u apply a cream/lotion to the legs when wearing skirts or garments that allow the skin on the legs to contact each other. As for the itching, this may simply be cause by the friction but if u shave the tops of your legs this may be a shaving rash which would cause the itching - you probably find it is worse during summer months. avoid shaving the area - wax instead and if its a case of the legs touching when u walk - always moisturise - daily is best and exfoliate at least twice a week...
