Details required

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query and photograph.
It is looking like fungal infection.
I would like to know whether you have itch or pain or any other symptoms in these rashes.
Are these present on one thigh or both the thighs?
This detail would help me in giving a closer diagnosis and better way of management.
Waiting for your response.
Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Use fluticasone

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the follow up.
It is pityriasis roseae, a reactive condition.
Somewhat like an allergic reaction.
I treat such cases with a topical steroid cream like fluticasone to be applied twice daily for a week.
It is safe and effective.
You can try this.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
