Hello
Welcome to HCM
Yes,As you are diagnosed with fungal infection,treament with flucanozole is definitely going to help.
As the infection is in groin area with discolouration,most probably it is jock itch also called as Tinea cruris.You can also use topical antifungal medications,to decrease itching.
Hope you are satisfied with the answer.
Thank you
