Many genital rashes are due to sexually transmitted infections. The area may be reddened with blisters or sores, or may retain its normal color but have noticeable bumps. Other symptoms, such as discharge, pain, burning with urination, or itching, may also occur.

Not all sexually transmitted infections cause genital rashes; the ones that most commonly do are herpes, syphilis, and human papilloma virus (HPV). Herpes typically causes clusters of painful red blisters that may be itchy. Syphilis may be associated with a solitary, painless, red sore on the genitals that may be followed by a rash on the hands and feet. Genital warts may develop as a result of HPV infection.

Genital rash treatment depends upon the cause. Syphilis is curable with antibiotics if treated early. Pubic lice and scabies are typically treated with topical solutions. Herpes and the human papilloma virus are not curable, but treatments are available that can help manage symptoms. Molluscum contagiosum goes away over a course of months to years without treatment; however, the individual bumps can be removed surgically or with topical medications.

Since some causes of genital rashes are treatable, and because many can be spread to other people or lead to significant complications, if you develop a genital rash, you should seek prompt medical care.
