what is the shape of these rashes?
Is the rash increasing in size?

I am sorry, I got some urgent call
From all the information your provided
I feel you are having a fungal infection
But I can not be sure of the diagnosis until I see the rash in person
wat causes such infection
wet undergarments are one reason for such infections
You will need to apply an antifungal cream for at least 6 weeks for it to go away completely
Oral fluconazole will not help at all
Don't wear any tight undergarments
please see a doctor to get the antifungal cream prescribed
You should not take medicines without a prescription
can i take cetrizine
it is illegal for pharmacists to sell prescription medicines without a doctor's prescription
Yes, You can take cetrizine for the time being
where do you live>
i didt use any wet undergarments.. wat else will be the reason
Your undergarments can become moist/wet due to sweat also right?
If you wish, you can consult me in my clinic in Koramangala for a prescription
can u pls tell the location of ur clinic
am applying coconut over the rashes nw.. can i apply it
It is in 6th block Koramangala, in IHA campus (near Koramangala Police station), I will be in my clinic from 5 pm to 8 pm, from Tuesday to Saturday
Yes, you can apply coconut oil to relieve the itching
5 pm to 8 pm
wat kind of food should i hv..
can i hv non-veg
There is no food restrictions
you can eat whatever you like to eat
will this spread to others by contat
is there anything else I can help you with?
Yes, it can spread
oh.. my wife is pregnant..
Don't worry, it won't cause any problem
is ther any chance tat it may spread to her
Yes, it may spread to her skin as well
but there is nothing to be worried about
it can be treated easily
and the important thing to remember is to keep your skin dry and clean
that will prevent it
and this fungus affects the skin only
so not that much of a problem really
do you have any more questions?
