Suggest treatment for skin rash

I have a very embarassing problem. I've got very itchy labia and the more I itch the more swollen they become and the itch is so intense I've scratched the skin off. I've been on antiobiotics as my GP suspected it as a fungal infection. I'm sure that is not as after the antiobiotics it has not improved and has spread to near my back passage. What is this? I cannot find any relief and it's driving me mad.
I'm 5.3 inches and weigh 13 stone.

Hello,

As from your history it could be vaginal canididiasis which is a fungal infection. As you mentioned in history about antibiotic but antibiotics won't work for fungal infection. You need anti-fungal tablets and cream to treat this. I would suggest you to visit a dermatologist to get proper treatment.

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

Regards,
Dr. Deepti Shukla, Dermatologist
