Tinea Cruris

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

I could find the attached pictures. This is classical fungal infection/Tinea Cruris.

I would suggest a topical antifungal e.g Clotrimazole ceam, twice daily for 4 weeks.

An oral antifungal e.g Fluconazole 150 mg tablet once every week for 4-6 weeks is also advisable.

An OTC antihistamine e.g cetrizine 10 mg once daily would provide symptomatic relief from itching.

Brief Answer:
These are effective medications

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

You can purchase Fluconazole 150 mg tablet from a local chemist/pharmacy. However, it is a prescription product. It should be taken once weekly for 4 - 6 weeks.

Use plain clotrimazole cream twice daily rather than using a clotrimazole beclomethasone combination

Continue with Cetrizine tab 10 mg once daily (Cetrizine D contains a decongestant which is not required, rather take plain cetrizine tablet).

Brief Answer:
Fungal Infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

I have reviewed your latest pictures. These are all classical of fungal infection. Annular lesions with central clearing.

You may take fluconazole (tab. flucos 150 mg) once every week for 4-6 weeks.

Topically you may apply either clotrin-B cream (contains clotrimazole+beclomethasone) OR you may apply Sebifin-plus cream (contains terbinafine+mometasone), twice daily for 4-6 weeks

Oral tab cetrizine 10 mg once daily would provide you symptomatic relief from itching.
