What are the light circular white spots on my inner thigh ?

I have a question about some light spots on my body that no one seems to what are. I have looked all over the internet to find out if some one has anything like I do and only find a few who have and they seem to think it s fungal but I m unsure. The spots are very light and follow the inner of thighs and they are perfect circles. Also they do not itch or cause any discomfort. After taking a bath the spots fade and I put some cream on them that seems to help. Please help me!

Hi,thanks for query.Either the spots are fungal as others are telling,or they are due to high amount of moisture in that area.Please keep the area dry,wear loose clothes,apply some cream or powder over the area,wear more of cotton clothes.You can apply some anti fungal cream on it to see the result,mostly they will disappear.Other wise please take help from your doctor.bye.

Hi!,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

It seems to be a fungal infection even though it is not itchy.As you said it goes off with some creams and relapses again ,means that you are using probably a steroid creams which vanishes it temporarily .
I would advice you to use a plain anti fungal cream (no steroid) for couple of weeks and see the response .If it doesn't go ,then you should consult a dermatologist for expert opinion.

regards,
Dr.chawda

Hello Doctor,I have been suffering from itchy scrotum since a year. Back in Dec 09, I had a secondary fungal infection on the scrotum due to excessive sweat. The doctor had prescribed Flucanazole tablets and Zole-F cream. It took 3 weeks to heal. But, the infection did not seem to cure 100%. My scrotum often goes dry and white and becomes itchy and with a burning sensation. When the scrotum skin is stretched, I observed a kind of drought area like texture with small dark patches in irregular shapes. Applying coconut oil provides temporary relief. It does not itch during night times, except in one or two instances. I am not sure if it is still a fungus infection. I do not have fungus infection on foot or else where. During the mid of the day, the scrotum skin becomes dry and the skin turns pale white and it burns a bit. This kind of infection is observed only on the scrotum, and not on the penis nor on the bottom of the scrotum. I also have developed 3 small blisters on the upper left side of the scrotum, which earlier were the size of a pea and now has reduced in size, but is still there. I apply coconut oil daily morning and before going to bed and stay calm for 30 mins until the skin absorbs it, and I am doing it since a year and yet no signs of cure. I fear of approaching a skin doctor as he might prescribe steroids which may worsen the situation.

Adding to it, I recently developed 3-4 white patches on the left side of the groin area which itches quite often. I started applying a Micanazole Nitrate + Fluocinolone Acetonide based cream since last 4 weeks. Please let me know if my scrotum skin infection is an indication of fungal infection.

Thanks in advance,

I have been diagnosed with mycoses and prescribed with Clomatrizole containing tablet for 3 day as suppositories. I have put my-self as well on non-starch and non-sugar diet.
It has been three days now and I have had low grade fever of round 37.2 C as well as have lost 2 kilos since then (however usually I excersize heavily daily but I haven't done it for a week now). Is it a normal reaction?
