Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Due to frequent loose stools the perineum could have been damp for long and caught fungal infection.

I suggest you to apply DK gel (Miconazole) over the affected part in the night and Keto Dusting powder in the morning. This will keep the area dry and cure the fungal infection you got.

Hope, I answered your query.

Please let me know if there are any other concerns.

Regards,
