Thanks for the query.
This appears like a fungal infection.
What all medication you have applied can give relief just for a few days.
Here is my advice for you.
1. Apply oint clotrimazole in night and clotrimazole powder in day for atleast one month. Remember to use it for one month even if the itch stops, this will prevent recurrence.
2. Take an anti histamine for itch.
3. Dont share your towel or cloth with anyone, this can spread the disease. Also it can spread sexually. So better to avoid sexual intercourse for atleast 10 days, with regular medication.
Dont worry it is completly curable.
Let of know if you have any other doubt.
Thank you

Thanks for the quick reply. Really your reply remove my most of the tension.

Can you please give me the exact name of the medicine because there are so many brands available. Might be possible pharmacist give me wrong one.

So requested you to please give me the Name of the medicine along with the brand.

what is the root cause of this kind of diseases?
And what precaution i need to take for avoiding this kind of diseases in future?
Answered by Dr. Rahul Kumar 11 minutes later
The cause is a fungus. It usually grows in areas where sweat is there, most probably groin.
Take clodid b ointment and clodid powder.
It can spread only by direct contact or by sharing towel.
After around 10 days of treatment even the chance of spread decreases.
If you feel satisfied with the discussion kindly rate it before closing.
Thank you
