Question: I seem to have developed a rash since couple of days now. And the skin color has changed in the area i tend to itch a lot the groin area. I had a similar condition a while ago ( 5 years back ) on my right leg above the ankle. That time i used a cream named Lobate GM and it did go away but tried the same , does provide some relief to the itch but come back if not used. let me know if any more information is required and will provide for the same.

Brief Answer:

Either intertrigo or tinea, upload pictures.

Detailed Answer:


I have gone through your complaints and it could be either intertrigo which is inflammation of the body folds or tinea which is a fungal infection of the skin.

I would recommend you to upload the photographs of the affected areas so that I can have a clearer picture of the condition and can guide you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
