Brief Answer: Fungal infection skin Detailed Answer: Hi again I have seen the attached pictures. You have developed tinea infection over the thighs which is a fungal infection of the skin. You need to apply lo antifungal cream containing clotrimazole like a canestan cream over the affected areas twice a day. Do not apply any other cream or oils over the affected area. Wear cotton clothes and undergarments so as to reduce sweating as it tends to exacerbate the skin infection. Use the medicine for atleast two weeks so as to completely cure the infection and prevent any recurrence. Dr Geetika Paul
