Brief Answer: detailed below Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for accepting my advice to meet a dermatologist. Yes, I have seen the picture which is not clear. Diagnosis is made by the doctor after detailed clinical examination. Keep your part clean daily by gently washing it with running tape water with fore skin gently retracted. Do not rub it with tissue or cloth.Do not apply any irritant. Do not be harsh to your organ. No home remedy without permission and full knowledge of treating dermatologist to be tried. IF YOU have any further question I will be happy to assist otherwise, we close this conversation on positive note that you will get rid of your worries and problem soon.

Gud evening Doc. Another problem since one weak i observed some itchyness between my legs and also i feel that an infection also strikes at my inner thighs where the legs meets the testicles (i.e, the v-shaped part of the body ) this winter it was very itchy and irritating. Its disturb me in the night when i was going to the bed and feels like itching that surface very heavily. After, some days i was worried and notices a dry and sore skin which becomes dark. so, i applied mustard oil massage to that area and also applied some garlic oil to that part of the skin and wash it thoroughly with XXXXXXX warm water, also applies borolien twice a day and vesiline to that area before going to bed.And now the itchyness of the skin reduces very much and also the irritation also less. So, can you please suggest me what is this infection and does it be controlled by using this habits.
