Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 38 year old female. I have recently developed a skin rash in my groin area. This is the first time this rash has developed. I am currently under no medication. My menstrual cycle is normal.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It is dermatophytosis, a kind of fungal infection, which is common in a humid environment. I suggest Candid B (Clotrimazole and Beclometasone) cream morning and evening for few weeks. You will notice the improvement in 72 hours.

Regards.

Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Thank you for your reply. I have another sexual issue. I regularly wash my vagina with V-Wash. Still, my husband refuses to perform oral as he complains of pungent smell from my vagina. What to do for this?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Well, that is the because some people have an increased sense of smell. Your husband could be one of them. A certain amount of smell is normal and is due to bacterial flora in the vagina.

I suggest taking a tablet of Azithromycin 1 g, Tinidazole 2 g, and Fluconazole 150 mg. Every single dose will reduce bacterial vaginal load and decrease smell. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines with their consent.
