Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at healthcaremagic
I am Dr Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, a dermatologist.
I have reviewed the attached photograph and you have developed tinea cruris which is a fungal infection of the skin.
If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to take tablet terbinafine 250 mg once daily in the morning and apply luliconazole cream on the affected areas at night for atleast 4 weeks.
Besides this take antihistaminic like tablet levocetrizine 5 mg once or twice daily depending on the intensity of itching.
These are prescription drugs and should be taken under doctor's supervision.
Also avoid sharing of towel and soap, stay in cool airy environment and wear loose cotton clothes.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
