Hello and welcome I'm Dr Chip

Do you have a photo of the rash?

And what did you mean by a raised groin?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Here is a picture
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 6 months ago.

Got it--thanks

And the raised groin thing?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Inguienal maybe I'm not sure right below my stomach on the right side
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 6 months ago.

OK--nothing very serious here

The rash is cellulitis--a skin infection--and the groin thing is an enlarged lymph node from the infection

This isn't herpes or anything at all serious--you just need a course of oral antibiotics to take care of it

Please let me know if you need any more information

It comes in the same place every 8 or so months is that normal. How can you tell it's not herpes! Just scared that's all
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 6 months ago.

It doesn't have the appearance of herpes and cellulitis often hits the same area more than once

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
The only reason anything came out of the bumps or cluster was from me messing with it.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 6 months ago.
