The painful purple-red rash around my groin and butt spread

Resolved Question:

The painful purple-red rash around my groin and butt spread quickly. Soon, blisters formed and they popped shortly after forming and now they are open sores. The sores sting. It is difficult to sit down and walk.

drknowsbest : This is most likely a bacterial folliculitis but if they looked like chickenpox at first and had clear fluid inside could be herpes
drknowsbest : Bacterial has usually white to yellow fluid inside and sounds more like what you siad
drknowsbest : You can try over the counter antibacterial creams but if it is really painful and spread that fast more likely you need prescription antibiotics

I see you are off line try neosporin or something like it for now but likely you will need to see your dr on Monday for oral antibiotics
Don't use cortisone or the like as this will make it worse
