Dry, white, flaky skin of inner thigh
I have been experiencing a dry patch on my inner, upper thigh. It turns flaky and white and continues to itch. This has been happening for a few days now. My thigh gap is negligible and I use a normal soap for bathing.

You may be suffering from tinea cruris which is fungal infection of the inner thighs and buttocks area. It can be treated by taking four to six weeks of anti fungal treatment which includes tablets along with creams. Do not use soap over that area. Mistreatment with over the counter Steroid containing creams like fourderm, panderm, quadriderm, hh zole, candid b etc lead to repeated case of recurrence and also side effects due to application. Do not use steroid containing combination creams. Please call me or contact me using online consult option with photos for detailed prescription. Do not delay treatment as it may spread further on your body and also to other people living in the household.,
