Whitish patch in upper thigh - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
User : Hi doctor, how are you
Fine Proceed with your query
User : this problem relating to my wife, she is 54
User : she has some skin eruption
Doctor : Ok
User : it is some whitish patch in her upper thigh area meeting the lower abdomen both sides in groin
User : this has come up in last 5 to 6 days, no itching complain
Doctor : Ok
Please dont mind
I would like to ask one more question
User : pl
Does it smell bad?
User : ys slight bad smell
Doctor : Ok
This is due to fungal infection
by the history I am able to make a Provisional Diagnosis about it
User : ys pl. go ahead
It is bcos there is dearth of air exposure in those areas
Hence this problem occurs
User : naturally
As a first line of management, you will need to apply antifungal medication over it
That will resolve the issue
Doctor : But before that I would like you to get it confirmed by a Dermatologist, as visual inspection is required
and then proceed with the treatment
Doctor : Are you getting it?
User : ys. are you advising me to go to a dermatologists, or you will prescribe some antifungal treatment
Doctor : I want it to be confirmed before starting the treatment
and moreover the medication is on prescription only
It is not ethical for me to prescribe it on this platform
I hope you understand
User : is it really
It is good from the patient perspective as well
Doctor : Meanwhile I would suggest you Abzorb powder
Which is also an antifungal powder
Doctor : It is medicated one
User : okay
to be sprinkled to the affected area
This makes the area dry
and also has the medication in it
So, go for that powder now
User : Okay i will do that,
Doctor : Is there any thing else I can help you with?
User : but one thing i wanted to interact, this platform expect to advise on minor ailments and then in due course the subject could be refered to specialist.
Doctor : Are you there?
User : I hope you agree with me
Doctor : Yes
User : okay bye for today
But the point is that without seeing the skin lesion, it is difficult to make a confirmatory diagnosis
Doctor : That is the reason I want you to see a Skin specialist
User : okay, i understand, thank you
Please fill the feedback form say done when done.
Doctor : Have you filled the feedback form?
