Suggest remedies for itchy skin and fungal infection

Dear Doctor,
I had an itchy and peeling foreskin which would not heal after medication and a doc circumscised me. It became infected. Its ok now, only scarred, but I continue to have itchy genitals and groin and burning sensation, even after almost 9 mnths. what could be wrong? I was treated for fungal infection but still the burning pain is there, especially when wearing clothes.

Dermatologist 's  Response
Hi,

It seems to be lichen simplex chronicus. I would recommend you to take anti-histamine like tablet hydroxyzine 10 mg for 3 weeks.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, Dermatologist
