I attached it three times
Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

It could be scabies. But there is a possibility that it is jock itch. You should see your doctor to have an exam and get the medication.

Yesterday I started putting on canesten and it relieved a lot and I play basketball so that's why the constant moisture down there but I clean it with hydro peroxide and put canesten

I also have a dog that has a couple rashes is it possible to get it from him?
Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

Since canesten helps, it could be jock itch. Continue to use it twice a day for 2 weeks. If it doesn't help, you should see your doctor.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Besides canesten do you recommend any cream or spray?
Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

Lamisil AT twice a day at least 2 weeks.
