White patches in groin
I have white patches and flaky skin near the groin area and thighs. It also itches a lot sometimes. Have tried itch guard for past 2 days but no relief as of now. Should I continue applying an itch guard or is it urgent enough to see a doctor?

Hi...., Stay dry. Keep your groin area dry. Dry your genital area and inner thighs thoroughly with a clean towel after showering or exercising. Use powder around your groin area to prevent excess moisture. Wear clean clothes. Change your underwear at least once a day or more often if you sweat a lot. Wash workout clothes after each use. Be cool. Don't wear thick clothing for long periods of time in warm, humid weather... Avoid tightfitting clothes, which can rub and chafe your skin and make you more susceptible to jock itch. ..Consult Dermatologist...
