You might be suffering from fungal infection according your symptoms and it can be cured by homeopathic medicines.
You can take hepar sulph 30 4 tabs 3 times in a day for 10 days and report afterwards .You must also take care to maintain proper hygiene to stop infection from spreading over other regions.Apply coconut oil over the affected region to stop itching over the affected region.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
It seems you are getting a fungal infection can either take tab fluconazole (150mg) one tab once a wk for 4 wks or take tab terbinafin (250mg) once daily for 4 wks.Also use a anti fungal powder over the area along with topical anti fungal cream like ketoconazole cream once daily.Patients do get these infection as these are occluded area, esp if you sweat a lot.
take care,

if the itching is severe and the lesions are too many as evident from your description, creams may not be of great help. You may take tab terbinafine 250mg once daily for 2 weeks and tab atarax 25 mg once daily at night for 2 weeks. but i suggest that you visit a dermatologist and get your condition diagnosed first.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic. Yes it can be due to fungal infection like ringworm. Treatmnet consists of topical antifungal cream which may contain miconazole, tolnaftate, terbinafine,ketaconazole and clotrimazole.

Some of them are Lamisil, Monistat derm, Mycelex, and Nizoral. Restrict wearing any undergarments at night and as far as possible keep the area dry. Also use Abzorb powder on the area. If the symptoms persist then you may need oral antifungal drugs( like AF( 150 mg) ).

Hope it helps you. Regards.
