The pictures are very unclear madam. It looks like a fungal infection. You will need to consult a dermatologist so that u can be properly examined to reach a final diagnosis. If it is a fungal infection you will need some anti fungal creams and tablets. You will need to keep the area dry. For itching you can take antihistamines like Levocetrizine once or twice a day depending on the severity of itching. Medications like ring guard are a combination of several medicines including steroids. I would advice you to discontinue it since steroids cause lot of side effects if used for along time. Steroids can also make the infection spread and make the fungus resistant to normal antifungals. Warm regards. Dr.Rajdeep Mysore. Chirag Hospital Bangalore
