Hi

Welcome to the site!
I am Dr V XXXXXXX a Sr Dermatologist.

I have noted details and examined them by correlating with the pics.
In order to proceed further, please give me more info on following points:

1 Do the lesions have any correlation with sexual activity
2 do these appear at regular intervals or of their own
3 Any correlation with the use of alcohol or strenuous physical activity.
4 History of any infection in the partner
5 Any medication taken
6 Any bumps or swellings in the inguinal region
7 Any investigation reports

In the meantime, please take good care of local hygiene by washing with plain water and avoiding any medication for application in the area.

I will await your additional details.

Best wishes!

1 Do the lesions have any correlation with sexual activity.
i can not any thing, as my wife is not having any infection or problem. only once, after her per period when did sex her liquid had very bad odor. apart from that i dont think any correlation is there. we do protected sex 60-70% of the times.

.
3 Any correlation with the use of alcohol or strenuous physical activity.
No i dnt consume alcohol.
4 History of any infection in the partner

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Welcome back.

I have noted all the details and reviewed them.

It seems that it is being caused by intermittent collection of dead cells and secretions along with some normally present microorganisms in the area which is a normal process and is best held in check by adopting hygienic measures more energetically.

The following guidelines should help in such a case:

1 daily cleaning with plain water, without soap or disinfectants

2 ensuring similar hygienic measures for the spouse as well

3 Miconazole cream locally

4 Single tablet of Fluconazole 150 mg , both partners.

5 To notice and report if you experience any adverse development despite all the above measures.

6 Ensure that your blood sugar is within normal range

Wishing you an early recovery!
