Thanks for consulting me online. Dr. Sumaira Kousar MD welcomes you here for assistance today as your Physician.

It is actually the Folliculitis and has been in the beginning due only to the bacterial infection but now I can also believe a fungal infection. So you need to go for treatment with both topical and oral medication.

You need to apply Hydrozole ointment; And Clindamycin Topical Ointment on the affected areas. Take Claritin; Ibuprofen And Clindamycin tablet by mouth. Hot fomentation and Sitz bath is highly recommended. Drink more than 4 litres of water daily and keep a healthy diet and take rest. Cotton clothes and loose ones may help you get better soon. Avoid hot weather and humidity.

You will be alright soon. Don't worry as this is all curable. I am pretty much hopeful that it concludes all the concerns you had. Kindly let me know if you still have any doubts or additional health queries as there is always room for suspicions when we consult virtually. I am available 24/7 to answer any of your follow-up health queries. Give a positive feedback. It boosts us up to work even harder for patients.
