You may be suffering from tinea cruris which is fungal infection of the inner thighs, groin and buttocks area. It is also called jock itch. 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, dermi5, betnovate, dermikem OC, candid b etc lead to repeated case of recurrence and also side effects due to application. Do not use steroid containing combination creams. Please 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.

You need a course for a long duration - at least six weeks, under monitoring investigations. Avoid changing your doctor again and again - so that ur doctor can understand the resistance pattern of the fungus - if any.  Kindly see a qualified dermatologist near you or send in photos and details on direct consult.  Warm regards, Dr Govind Suresh Mittal, Therapeia skin hair and ENT centre, Bengaluru.  #bengalurudermatologist
