What causes itchy rashes on my thigh and groin area?
Ive been to the er twice, because I can't afford a doctor. I've had this really itchy rash on my right leg upper thigh and on my groin area. Now my urine has a funny smell, and the rash is spreading. The last doctor said it is a fungal infection and gave me cream. Any answers for me, I don't know if I believe the er here?
It may be fungal infection ..also called tines cruris. It is caused by dermatophyte. It may be exacerbated by perspiration,soap and wetness. Avoid excessive bathing. Avoid soap contact. Keep the area dry. You may take antifungal like itroconazole 100 mg twice a day along with antihistaminics like cetirizine.Apply antifungal cream like sertsconazole cream. Take bath in dettol mixed water. Consult the dermatologist.
Hope this helps.
