Hi,

Welcome to HCM.

You are suffering from tinea cruris or ringworm infection and also it is recurrent. I suggest you get a skin testing for fungal culture and antifungal susceptibility. Then you get a prescription for appropriate antifungal based on the test results from a dermatologist. This treatment should be continued for at least 6 months to prevent recurrence.

Few tips to avoid recurrence:
1. Keep the groin area clean and dry.
2. Avoid tight underwear and tight clothes.
3. Personal hygiene has to be maintained.
4. Complete the full course of treatment.

Thanks.
