Thanks for your query

From your description of the events, I suspect that you are having fungal infection involving the groin region.

It would be very helpful if you can take some close up pictures of the same and upload them here on this page. Alternatively, you can email them to attachments@healthcaremagic with reference to Dr Geetika.

Now coming to your skin condition, I would like to know if there is any redness or any skin lesions in the region. Fungal infections of the groin are quite common in hot climate due to excessive skin sweating.

For treatment, topical application of antifungals like clotrimazole twice a day has to be done.

Avoid using any kind of oil or creams over the affected area.
Keep the area clean and dry.

Wear cotton undergarments to decrease sweating.

Hope it helps.
Waiting for your response.
