Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Thank you for contacting Justanswer.
My name is***** khan. I am board certified family physician with specialist training in dermatology. I shall try and help you today with your query.
please upload the pictures of the rash.
also give me a brief history of the rash, your symptoms, how did it start? and what have you tried so far and I'll get back to you after that.
I had a look and there are two possibilities:
1. common things first: in this area you get a lot of sweating, particularly if you are living in warm weather. This is likely to be a fungal infection. Try using c combination of miconazole 1% and hydrocortisone 1% cream twice daily for 7 to 10 days. This usually comes by the name of daktacorte.
2. the other possibility is staph dermatitis but that is not as common and appears much worse and painful.
i would suggest you try this cream first and get back to me here in 7 days if you have further questions or if this is not improving.
I hope this answers your question.
If you are happy with the response, Can you please rate this consultation for me, as otherwise we do not get paid for our work.
This does not mean that your query gets closed after that. You can come back as many times as you like through the thread and ask me further questions regarding this problem.
Best wishes and good luck.
Yes it is available OTC. ask your pharmacist to further help you with that.
