This is Fungal ( Yeast) infection

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
One dermatologist on the platform says it’s not that it’s eczema and has recommended Clobetasol propionate ointment 0.05%.My doctor gave me Daktacort, that didn’t work, I’ve tried terbinafine that didn’t work, I’ve applied apple cider vinegar that didn’t work - what makes you say it’s fungal and what do you recommend to fix it?
Expert:  Dr.Shakeel Ansari replied 12 days ago.

Yes Daktacort is antifungal. It is a Fungal infection.

Expert:  Dr.Shakeel Ansari replied 12 days ago.

You can use antifungal soap bar along it. First wash the area with soap then apply Daktarin

Expert:  Dr.Shakeel Ansari replied 12 days ago.

This infection is called Tinea Cruris

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
I know, but like I said - Everything I’ve been trying is for that, and nothings worked.
Expert:  Dr.Shakeel Ansari replied 12 days ago.

Have you tried this combination of  betamethasone / clotrimazole. This is best

Expert:  Dr.Shakeel Ansari replied 12 days ago.

If it does not respond then your GP can get skin scrapings to test. This will give the clear diagnosis.
