Brief Answer: details below Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for the query. Is it Z derm E or ZODERM E ? Your description matches with fungal infection. ZODERM E is an antifungal. I would like to know, whether in past 3 months there was no response at all or the lesions subsided and recurred again. I would also like to see a photograph of the lesion. This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis and will be able to tell you whether it is fistula or not. Please upload a photograph. Waiting for your response. Thank you

Brief Answer: Details below Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for the images. It is not a fistula but appearing like a chronic infection which is not healing and hence is bleeding. Please apply ointment mupirocine twice daily. Apply ointment clotrimazole twice daily in the itchy areas. This will give you relief. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
