Dear Srisubh,from the symptoms it seems that you are having chronic skin infection like fungal infection like ring worm,Please do not go for any form of self medication.Visit your doctor who will prescribe specific drugs meant for the purpose.Apart from this stop wearing tight clothes like jeans.Wear more of cotton clothes.Take bath twice in a day.Bye and take care.
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
You are suffering from fungal infection called tinea cruris and corporis.This is usually seen in occluded parts of the body(folds) where one sweats a lot.You need a course of oral anti fungal along with topical creams and anti fungal powder.This needs to be continued for at-least a month , after which you should see that it doesn't recur. Always maintain good hygienic conditions.

I am a 23 year old, sexually active male. I have had a history of fungal infections (jock itch, infected toes, etc) all over my body. About 3 months ago I started having severe pain on the tip of my penis that worsened after urination, ejaculation and chaffing. I was tested for all STDs at 2 months and 4 months after possible exposure and everything came up negative. I was put on 2 months worth of antibiotics which did nothing to improve my condition. Recently the pain at the tip has gone away but there is now a small line (indentation) along the base of the head of the penis which is the source of the discomfort. It is greatly affecting my sex life. I hope you can help.
hello doctor, i have jock itch. i have had it once, but then, it was easy to cure with an oinment (zincoderm gm). i had been wihtout it for a year after that. But, it came back again, and i ve been affected for like 7 months now. it seems it became more resistant to oinments and its spreading.. i have tried using zincoderm and quadriderm cream, but they just seem to stop the growth of the fungus. They didnt kill them... and also the infection now is a little painful around the border of the infected area. should i use oral treatment. if, yes, how long would that be and what oinment should i use..
