Thanks for writing to us.
Many skin disorders can involve the groin area and present as painful or itchy red rash like intertrigo
, tinea, psoriasis
, seborrheic dermatitis
, XXXXXXX XXXXXXX disease etc.
Of all these causes intertrigo is the most commonly seen disorder affecting the area.
I would appreciate if you could send me a good resolution image of the affected area so that I can suggest a probable diagnosis. You may upload the image by clicking on upload report/image icon which is on right side of query page. You may also send the pics to YYYY@YYYY . mention ATTN DR KALPANA PATHAK in subject line.
In the interim, wear loose cotton clothes. Keep the area well ventilated and dry. Avoid using soap/dettol/savlon etc over affected area. Just wash the area with water and apply a steroid antifungal cream. You may mix hydrocortisone
cream in equal quantity and apply twice daily over affected area. Also dust the area with antifungal powder multiple times in a day.
Hope this helped.
Post the pics and we will take this discussion further.
