Hello
It seems you are fungal infection of the groin.
I controlled diabetes and warm and humid areas of body like groin are places where fungus can grow and thrive easily.
Please control your diabetes well and consult your doctor for the proper dose of insulin
For fungal infection you may use oint CANESTAN locally twice a day for two weeks followed by clotrimazole dusting powder after the bath.
I hope to have answered your query however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
Thanks

Hello
It is better to use plain CANDID instead of CANDID B.
Wait for 10 days and if you dont get any response,then consult a dermatologist.

I m a 32year male, generally healthy. Literally over a night or two, I have developed a red, raised rash on the skin between my butt cheeks. I originally thought it was haemorrhoids and so tried zinc oxide and lidocaine cream, after bathing them in salt water, but felt it started to spread further onto the cheek and up towards my scrotum. I therefore thought it could be fungal nappy rash (due to sweating and hot weather) and so bought clotrimazole 2%, which I have ude for 2 days now, but to little improvement. Any thoughts please? Thank you!

i have clotrimazole and betamethasone dipropionate lotion 30 mL my PCP doctor gave it to me to use around my ankles as i had a red itchy rash around both ankles. the lotion did take the rash away. i have gotten a red rash on my face on the right cheek that is also very itchy. my makeup only conceals it a little, as it more noticeable under lights or when i am outside. i take cholesterol medication and blood pressure medicine, also for anxiety i take generic version of xanax .025 2 to 3 times a day. Would this lotion be safe to try to use on my cheek.

Thanks very much. I am 75 years old and my name is Marcy.

I have a rash in my left armpit only. Little itch. My doctor prescribed and I used a tube of ketocamozole. After six weeks I returned to the doctor. He then prescribed, which I took, a four day course of ketocamozole. Each time the rash greatly improved but did not quite go away. Same response when I use OTC anti-fungal, lotrimin.The rash is almost non-existent, but flares up when I perspire. Always there.Should I try a steroid of some type?
