During the summer I am plauged with a rash on my inner thigh, where it meets my torso. It is very painful, and hot and yucky. I always assumed it was heat rash.
Well, I currently have a case of it. My first winter case of it, a very PAINFUL case of it. I don’t even want to stand or walk it HURTS! This made me look online and see what I can find and I know, without a doubt, what it is.
Intertrigo, a rash that appears in vaious body folds, more common in overweight, diabetic, diaper wearing or bed ridden people.
Well, I’m in the overweight category, so there you go.
If you google it you can see all kinds of yucky pictures of what I have going on on my body right now.
Luckily its self treatable. Unluckily one of the treatments is to leave the affected area in the open air as much as possible. Hard to do that. Not that I mind walking around pantless, just that its winter and sort of cold in here.
Another self-treatment is to lose weight. Well, THATS not going to help this current rash one little bit, now its it. Might help me prevent it in the future, but I’m stuck with this one at the moment. -sigh-
Did I mention its a PAINFUL rash?
