Brief Answer: Fungal infection of groin Detailed Answer: Hi See the site and the problem you have mentioned seems to be that of a fungal infection of the groin region. You should not use soframycin over the affected area. Use an antifungal cream like canestan or candid cream over the affected area twice a day. Take oral fluconazole 150 mg tablet once a week. For the itching, you can take some antihistamines like levocetrizine tablet once a day. Do not apply oil or any other cream over the affected area. Dr Geetika Paul
