1. My husband woke up with what looks like Jock Itch, but it is not only down his inner thighs, but also all the way up to his bellybutton and on his scrotum and penis (which is very swollen, and not in a good way.) Could this be a different type of fungal infection...I've never seen Jock Itch cover such a large area.

2. My husband has had an odd set of spots for a few years now, that the doctors scratch their heads over, although one said he had seen another case of it, but couldn't remember the name, he just called them "travelers." There is one big spot about the size of a 50 cent piece and four smaller circular spots about the size of dimes. The are laid out sort of like the Hawaiiaan Islands. They do not itch or hurt, they are a medium red in color....what makes them so odd is that they move about his abdomen...in other words....two weeks from now...the entire pattern of spots will be a few inches from where they are now...a month from now they may be on his side ...eventually they will be on his back...and then they cirle back to his abdomen again and start the whole migration over again. It is like they float or crawl under the skin...moving slowely around his body...in the same patern....has anyone got a clue as to what this strange rash is?
