Hi and sorry for the delay.
I would suggest for now using Lotrimin cream morning and evening and also applying a hypoallergenic talcum powder to the area after applying the cream. This sound like a yeast/fungal infection and the combination I suggested should clear it up in about a week
Thank you for your recommendations .. looking at the types of lotrimin creams available, which one do you recommend - jock itch relief? Or are there any alternative products you would recommend?
Look forward to hearing from you and thanks again for your help
Thiis is the one I recommend Ian
It should work for you
