it is more likely due to sweating during the night if less with boxers
what happens in areas that sweat is you get a mild yeast infection from yeast on your skin and this can cause the rash you describe
try lotrimin ultra over the counter twice a day for 2 weeks and continue the boxers
hold the steroids since this could actually worsen infection for extreme itch take benadryl

there are small bumbs most of the day, twice in the last week I woke up and there appeared to be raised welts under the skin?
yes this is pretty typical of intertrigo like i described the reaction can cause small dots and welts
I sat on a leather couch a week ago at afriends house with nothing on my bottom, and showered in her house and used a towel that was on her door...is it possible there was a "fungus" from the towel? or she has a dog could I have gotten something from it?
not likely usually yeast already on skin could be bacterial and may require antibiotics if no better after a week see your dr sometimes need cream and a pill antibiotic
usually dogs transmit worms which cause different symptoms
a fungal infection like ringworm/or similar type would be treated either way with lotrimin
thanks...like now just a few bumbs but some burning
yeah sounds like just yeast
try the lotrimin
dont think it would be flees ?
not by the sounds of it
and usually more extensive whereas yeast in crevices/buttocks,etc
