Dear Customer, Thanks for providing quick additional information.
I can understand your concern.
It sounds to be a Fungal infection. It is a common skin infection that is caused by a type of fungus called tinea. It lives in warm, moist areas of the body.
Please follow these measures-
1.You should mix 1% Cortisone cream with 1% Clotrimazole cream and apply over the affected area twice a day, for at least 10 days.
2. You should take Tab Claritin 10 mg twice a day.
3. You should also use Calamine lotion for local application.
4. When washing or bathing, keep water contact as brief as possible.
5. Take tab Motrin 400mg twice a day. This will reduce inflammation of skin.These all are OTC drugs.
6. You need to Change clothes especially underwear everyday, Also wear loose clothing.
7. You need to apply Zeasorb-AF powder over the area twice a day, you can use it at noon and early evening. Continue for 4 weeks.
In few days, you would be free from symptoms.
I hope this helps.
Please let me know how I can be of further assistance.
