Itching around crotch
I am having itching problem around my Crotch and when I noticed there is red color rashes and white color which on scratching peels off. I applied coconut oil and used Candid-B for few days and it was fine, now it has started to come again. May I have some medicine that clears it out completely?

Greetings. This is mostly a fungal infection. Fungal infection is quite common, especially more common in men. This is often related to humidity, tight clothing, excess sweating and accumulation of moisture. You'll need to keep the area dry, wear lose clothing. You'll need to see a dermatologist for confirmation of infection and treatment with oral antifungals and creams. If there's resistance to one particular medicine another medicine may be needed depending on your improvement. DO NOT USE OVER THE COUNTER CREAMS LIKE BETNOVATE GM OR PAN DERM OR QUADRIDERM or candid -B ... this will only prolong the infection. Hope this helps
