Dermatologist 's  Response
Hi,

You may be having angiokeratoma.

There is proliferation of capllaries with keratosis.

There may be itching and burning sensation.

It may be secondarily infected.

You immediately consult dermatologist for perfect diagnosis.

Electrocautery under local anaesthesia may cure the disease.

Before that itching and infection would be controlled.

I hope you got my answ er.

Thanks.

seem o be fungus as the areas like this are prone to get fungus infections
need to keep airy and dry
no oily greesy and moisterising creams
keep sweat free
can start with fluconazole 150 mg once a wk for 4-6 wk
use anti allergic tab for itch sos or daily if itch continues
apply anti fungal ointment and powders in the area affected
for 4-6 wk
