- no itching. Slight burning/tender. (not acidic, just painful). Quite uncomfortable with underwear/jeans etc. Skin very tender and top layers now peeling.
- site: nowhere else but the 'crease' between very upper thighs and groin area.
- no history of skin conditions
- on no medication (but am allergic to penicillin)
- no family history
- I am an office based consultant.
Candidal intertrigo most probably
Thanks for answering...
After reading history..I feel that most probably you may be having candidal intertrigo. It is a fungal infection caused by Candida albicans. It may have been better if you had sent me a picture too.
Anyway, I would like to suggest as follow..
- tab ketoconazole twice a day for two weeks
- tab levocetirizine 5 mg one at night
- antibiotics like cefixime 200 mg twice a day for 5 days
- setraconazole cream apply at night
- fluconazole powder apply thrice during day time after drying the area
- Sitz bath.. In dettol 10 drops in water, sit in tub for 10 min daily at bath
- keep the area dry
- avoid excessive bathing
- wear cotton clothes
- relax and avoid worries
- if you are obese, do exercise to reduce weight
Please note that the first three oral medications are prescription only drugs. Your local doctor will know about it.
I hope this would help you..still any query,welcome..
Wishing you healthy life..
