Have itching near groins, reoccurring, applying candid lotion. Permanent cure? - Online Doctor Chats
How are you doing?
am doin not doing that well, thats y thought of pinging you:)
tell me how I can help you
can skin related probs be consulted with you?
please go ahead
i have this itching near my groins (Hope the term is right) for a very long time and i have been applying candid lotion.... when i apply i dont have any itching..... but when i stop even for 2 days it recurs again....
in all probability XXXXXXX you have a dermatophytic infection
so whats the solution?
Firstly, you need to keep the area clean and dry
wear cotton underclothes and let the skin breathe
okkk..... which i actually do every day.... morn and evening..
You will have to use a powder called Abzorb
This will help keep the area dry and has an anti-fungal agent
will i get it in all meds??
and how long this should be done?
atleast 2 weeks
frequency for application?
in a day...
Then you need to apply Micogel regularly for atleast 2 weeks
atleast twice a day
this needs to be applied twice a day, morning and evening
I actually want you to come back from work, have a bath, and use this powder and ointment
thats how it needs to be done
so i shud be stopping candid right?
If it doesnt become ok in 2 weeks
see a physician
You'll need an examination and oral anti-fungal drugs
How old are you XXXXXXX?
okkk fine..... will do that..... thanks for the advice doc...
am actually 30....
Do you have diabetes?
any family history?
family history yes....
my dad has...
and dad's side grand parents both of them had.... now they r no more...
my mom's side no one has...
does being a diabetic has an impact on this situation..?
Then you would need dietary modification
Actually infections are more common and more difficult to treat in diabetica
okkkk i understand.....
But you need to modify your diet XXXXXXX
Why dont you get a personalized diet plan
actually i have been applying candid almost for 5 years now..... actually i never consulted anyone after that.....
never felt like talkin abt it....
but now i feel is it is too long a duration i have been bearing it....
Thats why I changes the drug
personalized diet plan entails somethin? actually i kinda balance out my food pretty well.... am kinda fitness freak...
i do workout for an hour in the morn...
have a sleep schedule for 7 hours...
I understand XXXXXXX
and eat a balanced diet i guess...
But I would still recommend it
a lot of times we dont realize it
so what i need to do?
Another thing is when you work out, make sure you have a bath after that
I'll get my customer care team to call you and arrange a call with a dietitian
ya i do that actually... my work outs are in the mornings...
so that happens for sure..
Should I arrange this call for you?
okkk...i guess there is a dietician chat option too:)
maybe i ll do that in my free time....
she'll call you
at a time convenient to you
will that be ok if the call can happen on weekends?
on a sunday maybe?
they work on Saturdays
becoz i work 6 days a week:(
But you can spare 15-20 mins or yourself
okkk saturdays till wat time?
My customer care team will call you and fix a call as per your convenience
does that work for you?
okkkk that shud be okk....
Is there anything else I can help you with?
Thank you so much Dr XXXXXXX ..
it was nice talking to you....
will you always be there or you folks work on shifts?
