Hi,Alexandra,it is always difficult to comment on skin disorder without looking at it.Just to give you rough idea as per the site and description,this could be some fungal infection like taeniasis.It is common in areas where skin comes in contact and have moisture.You need to apply anti fungal cream over it after confirmation of diagnosis by your doctor.In mean time ask her to avoid tight fitting clothes and keep the area dry.Thanks and buy.

I have had a red itchy rash that comes out on the creases of my arms but mainly on the left arm for over a year now. The lymph nodes in that area become swollen as well when the rash appears. It was gone for three or four months but is back now. What could it be?

My 4 year old daughter has bites that we believe to be mosquito bites on her legs. (about 4 bites) She has been complaining of itching & we have been applying hydrocortisone cream a few times per day. I noticed tonight that two of the bites (& one in particular) have a large (2-3 inch) reddened area around them & one has a defined white border around the red. Does this seem like a reason for concern?

Hi, I just bought a dose of zentel (2 tablets) to take (for myself). I am 30 years old, female, eat healthy, have no symptoms that would lead me to think that i need zentel. However, I chose to do this because i have not done something like this for over 6 years. My question is, how many times should i repeat this procedure?
