Image: Are Betadine and Fourderm creams helpful in private area infection?

Hi doctor,

I am working at a steel industry. So, due to excess heat in the workplace I always have a lot of sweat in private areas. I consult a doctor for the infection. He prescribed me Betadine powder to use and Fourderm cream. Is it helpful?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

My opinion is not to use Fourderm cream (combination of Chlorhexidine gluconate, Clobetasol, Miconazole and Neomycin). It has strong steroids and has a lot of side effects. I suggest Onabet cream (Sertaconazole) or Candid cream - Clotrimazole instead.

I also suggest Abzorb powder (Clotrimazole). Consult your specialist doctor, discuss my opinion with him or her and take the medicine with consent.

Please put up two or three clear pictures of the affected area so that oral medications may be added if needed.

Thank you doctor,

I have attached the photos for your reference. The first photo is the present condition of my testes. Second one is the infected area.

  3. Tablet Combiflam (combination of Paracetamol and Ibuprofen) once or twice daily for pain.
  4. Tablet Levocetrizine 5 mg once or twice daily for itching.
  5. Onabet cream twice daily.

Loose cotton undergarment should be worn for some support.
