No I.don't but diabetes runs in my family

Thank you very much for the reply.

These lesions look very spread out and do not look like herpes.

It looks more like a dermatitis ( inflammation of the skin ) which can happen due to allergy , friction , sweating , masturbation .

This can be treated with addition of Cortaid application to the existing Lotrimin that you are applying.
Intake of oral Antihistamine like Claritine which is available over the counter will make a difference as well.

Do you have any Hydrocortisone cream at home?

No just lotramin
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

You can get Cortaid cream over the counter and apply this along with Lotrimin cream on the area twice a day for 10 days. It will help the itching , pain and burning faster.

Do you Agree with what I have mentioned?
