H

Got it--hold on please

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Ok

Have you tried anything to treat that?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Just moisturiser as if I can stop itching it, it drys out
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
What do you recommend I do

It's a common fungal infection for that area

Nothing to do with hygiene and not an STD

No specific trigger for it

Here are my suggestions--

https://www.boots.com/lanacane-anti-chafing-gel-30g-10071974

Applying both of those together twice a day for a week will soothe this and clear it up

Please let me know if you need any more information

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Are you 100%

I'm 100% sure of my diagnosis--it's not herpes or any STD

Please remember to rate my service to you so I can get credit for my time with you

Do I apply both creams on the effected area?

Yes--both together twice a day to the affected area

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Do you have to buy these over the counter or can you get them off the shelf
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
the canesten isn’t that for athletes foot?

It says for athlete's foot but it's an antifungal for anywhere

Yes, they are both over the counter at any pharmacy
