Brief Answer:
Fungal infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query on HCM and I do understand your concern

“As” per your clinical history is concerned you have fungal infection and for it clotrimazole cream or powered is good but do not use [onabet] cream regularly as it is a steroid. You can discuss with your Doctor about [FLUCONAZOLE]tablets orally for a short course and add one multivitamin capsules daily.

Do few things at home might be helpful:-

1)Quickly change out of damp clothing

2)Do change your socks and undergarments regularly.

3)Wear loose-fitting clothing at night

4)Use gentle and scent-free soap on affected areas.

5)Add a natural probiotics to your diet like [yogurt]

6)Reduce the amount of sugar in your tea

7)Mix [apple cider vinegar] with an equal amount of water, and then apply it on itching skin and leave it on for 30 minutes. When done, XXXXXXX dry the area thoroughly with a dryer. Do it once a day for 15 day.

Hope that helps and if you have further questions then you can ask me.

Thanks and wish you a good health
