I agree dr. Dhara

Tinea cruris

Provisional clinical diagnosis : Verrucous herpetic infection of the scrotum and the groin Atypical presentations of genital herpes are more commonly described among immuno-compromised patients. Furthermore, verrucous lesions may be attributed to acyclovir resistant strains of herpes simplex virus as well as co-infection with fungi and other viruses. Among immunocompromised patients, atypical presentations including vegetating and keratotic plaques have been described. However a verrucous presentation of herpes simplex virus (HSV) has been reported in immunocompetent patient.
