hi..thanks for writing here.Tinea cruris is the name for fungal infection which occurs in groin region.This region is always moist and therfore recurrence is common.You just have to keep that area dry.You can start using antifungal powder over these areas.Just check your blood sugar levels,also take terbinafine tablets 250 mg for 14 days.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Recurrence may mean repeated exposure / residual infection / Immuno suppression / Diabetes and so on.
It is completely curable - No need to get depressed.
See the dermatologist again / may have second opinion..
Long term treatment - like once weekly fluconazole - will eliminate.
Discuss with your skin specialist. You need follow up...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
