What causes fungal infection in groin along with blisters on thighs?

Sir Good morning, I am working with a central para military force and presently posted in Bastar region of Chhattisgarh since last two years. For last four to five months I am suffering with fungal skin infection on my goin region with map like scars and on spots with blister on my thighs and left calf region. Since my problem was not cured at this place by using Batamil cream and Tab Turbinaforce. I consulted Dematologist Dr Seetha Ramreddy at Hyderabad and used Unisovin 250 mg and cream Onabet for one month and found no improvement. Again I contacted a Dermatologist at Yashoda Hospita, Malkepet, Hyd who prescribed me SPoranox (Itraconazole cap) and cream Sebifin. But no improvement. This problem persist with 70-80 % of our co-staff. Further I bring to your notice that this problem slightly reduces when I am at Hyderabad and recurs when I reach Chhattisgarh. Kindly suggest me best and an early treatment for my problem please. Thanking you

Hello,

* As per my clinical experience, possible issue of resistant fungal or bacterial infection most likely.

My suggestions at present

- keep the area clean with antiseptic liquid
- local application of miconazole ( 2 % ) cream
- culture swab report of lesion area
- antibiotics and anti fungal medications as per the sensitivity report
- control of blood sugar
- immunity build up via nutritional support and high protein diet.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel
