Suffer from itching in the groin area. Using lamisil. Skin peeling. Ia this normal?

Good day, I discovered symptoms of the jock itch around my groin area(it was itching & burning). I used an anti fungul cream called Lamisil 1%. The symptoms cleared out. Even though my skin still seems darker where it was infected. I'm noticing the skin peeling off now. My question is, "is this normal?" I'm no longer experiencing itching nor burning.

Thanks for the query.

Your symptoms of itching and burning has resolved means infection has been cured.

Pigmentation and peeling of skin may persists for one month.It takes one month to replace superficial skin layer by new cells.

Hope this helps you.
Thank you.
