My inner thight was sensative, I thought it was chafing as I had been wearing a pad from coughing and slight leaking. I thought it was a diaper rash sort of thing. Then I notice I had a few spots of ring worm on my thigh. My doctor gave me an ointment kero something it is working (slowly) on the thigh but because of the area of the one that is sore, sitting all day it is very wet looking but if I dont put the ointment on the skin gets sort of hard and more chaffed. what can I do?

Welcome and thanks for posting your query to HCM.

It appears from your problem that you are suffering from "fungal infection" of the area with infection over the crural fold.

This is a common condition resulting from the hot humid climate which favors the growth of fungus over the thigh area. This area is always covered so results in more of worsening of the situation.
Kindly do not scratch the areas can lead to more worsening of the situation.

For the betterment you do warm water compresses over the affected area.
Wear Cotton clothes and cotton undergarments. Change your undergarments twice daily. Stay away from the hot and humid climate.
You can continue with the ointment given by the doctor along with the measures provided above to get early relief.
If the things are worsening despite aboe measures then you need to meet a dermatologist to get relief from this condition.

Hope these informations are helpful.

"Wish you good health"
