Profuse sweating, groin area seems to be turning pinkish with itching. How can I reduce it?

Hi There. Well my problem is I sweat a lot and probably I do have some kind of infection in my groin area which is turning pinkish with my right groin being more pink than the left one.Well I have started maintaining good hygiene too by bathing twice/day and changing my undergarments twice a day! It used to be very itchy in the beginning but has reduced considerably now.Is there any cream which I can use to reduce the pinkish area?

Thanks for the query,

Groin area is prone to sweating,
This sweat attracts fungal growth.

You might have developed fungal infection.

Treatment can be with oral antifungals as well as with topical antifungals.

You can apply an anti fungal powder like clotrimazole,

This will keep the area dry and prevent infection.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
