Rash in groin area

I started to notice a red rash around my groin area last night and this morning it really started to itch. I'm at work so it's hard to really tell what or how bad it is since it's dark in here. But it seems to be pink/redish and around my penis for the most part. I can't really tell if it's on my testies yet but they sure do itch. Has anyone had any isses with groin rashes or could this be caused by something else?

It sounds like anything pink, reddish, and itchy could be either eczema or some sort of bacterial infection. Is it a dry rash or more of a moist rash? How recently have you started taking Accutane? Have you changed anything in the way you shower? Have you had any recent sexual activity without a barrier method (read: condom)? Any of these things could help to narrow the issue.

Well I dunno, I haven't done anything or showered differently or anything. I don't know about bacteria, I'm thinking more along the lines of fungai. I started accutane about a month and a half ago.

I really doubt that it has anything to do with accutane. I'm guessing it's some sort of STD or a bit of an infection. sorry dude.
