What can be the reason for my groin area burning? Can it be gas? Nervous breakdown or cause of one masturbating too much? Infection?

The most common cause for burning sensation in the groin area is the occurrence of an infection. This is not an uncommon condition and is faced by men and women alike. Jock itch could be the most likely cause in your case. Jock itch, as the name suggests is a fungal infection that affects the groin area in an affected individual. If you notice a ring shape formation of rash on your buttocks, thighs or genitals, you are almost definitely experiencing this condition. In some cases, sexually transmitted infections can also cause a burning sensation in the groin region. Sexually transmitted infections such as Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, HIV, Genital herpes, Genital warts, Hepatitis A and Syphilis, also causes the groin area to burn. If you experience pain while urinating, frequent urination, muscle and joint pain, swelling in the genital area, bleeding, or formation of warts, you most probably are experiencing any one of the above sexually transmitted infections. In this case you should visit your doctor immediately, as sexually transmitted infections are serious health conditions, and need to be treated with care and caution.

However, if you are only experiencing a normal burning sensation, without any other symptoms, you can treat yourself at home with the help of simple home remedies. If your condition does not improve within a week from using these remedies please visit your doctor immediately.

  • The most important thing to do when faced with jock itch is to keep your groin area moisture free, as fungus thrives in a warm and moist environment. You can ensure this by wiping the inside of your thighs properly after having a bath. For a more effective method, you could blow dry your groin area with the help of a blow dryer that is set at a cool temperature.
  • Wash your groin area with an anti fungal soap as soon as you get home from work or college. This will ensure that the fungus is contained effectively.
  • Use anti fungal dusting powders in order to keep sweat from accumulating in your groin region. This will treat the fungal infection as well as keep your groin area moisture and sweat free.
  • You can use tea tree oil in order to get rid of the fungal infection and burning sensation. Make sure you dilute the oil by using a carrier oil as tea tree oil is very strong and can irritate the skin even further.
  • You can apply aloe vera juice on the affected area before going to bed at night in order to soothe the burning sensation.
