Fungal infection of groin , apply antifungals

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I understand your concern regarding your skin problem and I hope I am able to help you in the same.
Since you have developed a fungal infection of the groin region, you should apply a topical antifungal cream like canestan over the affected areas twice a day. Do not apply any other cream or oil over it. Wear cotton undergarments so as to decrease sweating .
In case there is any associated itching, you can take some oral antihistamine like claritin tablet once a day .
