Rash on inner thighs?

Edited , 2 users are following.

I used to be quite heavy so I have a lot of extra skin hanging there in my inner thigh and lower stomach. this makes keeping the area dry quite difficult, and of course there is

more surface area. I'm thinking this is something fungal from the moisture and friction ? I also think this is visually similar to miliaria rubra ![image]image(https://patient.azureedge.net/forums/images/upload-sm/1371049-637544322313007150.jpg)

    Does it itch? Miliaria rubra, or prickly heat, often itches quite unbearably. Your rash is not fungal but may be blocked sweat glands. Just keep the area clean and dry. Dont wear pants at night to give the area a chance to dry out.
