Brief Answer:
Please, provide more information about this pain?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this pain that you have reported. I will like to obtain more information on this so as to be able to identify the cause and suggest a management plan for this.

1. For how long has this been going on?
2. What turns it on and what makes it better?
3. Is it so severe or is it a bearable pain?
4. Have you ever had a similar pain in future?

This would help me further establish what the exact cause of this pain is and put together a strategy to get it addressed. I hope to hear from you at your earliest convenience and promise to get back to you promptly after that. Until next, I wish you well.

Brief Answer:
Can you upload an image of the redline between your legs for review?

Detailed Answer:
HI and thanks for this follow up.

I have reviewed the creams. But for cortisone, all other creams are used to treat fungal infections. Before recommending one over the other, may I kindly suggest that you upload an image of this red line for review. This will help me make a more precise diagnosis before proposing a plan to address this.

I hope to hear from you soon!

Brief Answer:
I will recommend an examination by a doctor at this time

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for this follow up.

I will suggest that you see a doctor. it is necessary that we examine this area fully before attempting to treat. The information I have gathered is not enough to make a clear diagnosis and manage appropriately.

keep me posted and for now stop all these creams. they are simply making the condition difficult to discern.
