    Advise on the pneumonia,pseudomonas and red itchy rash in my groin

I have just been diagnosed with klebsiella pneumonia and pseudomonas. I presented to my dermatologist with itchy, flaky, very red rash in my groin area and right below my belly button. I do have lupus and diabetes. She has put my on 2 weeks of Levaquin and some creams for the areas. What is your opinion and can you explain the seriousness of this to me.

Dermatologist 's  Response

As you described about your health status having different infections, Lupus and diabetes, I think you must be having poor immunity. So, I feel that due to poor immunity, you may be having fungal infection dermatophytosis in groin areas.,, may be called tinea corporis and tinea cruris. For the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment, you must consult the dermatologist. I would recommend you to apply anti-fungal cream like sertaconazole cream, and take cap itraconazole 100 mg twice a day. Tab desloratidine 5 mg may be taken twice day to relieve itching.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
