Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, fungal infection is very common condition seen in groin area initially it can be managed with local application of Miconazole cream good hygiene is really great matter of concern and it needs to be care, try to keep the area clean, anti-fungal powder can also be used hope this information helps.
