Hi doctor,

My pelvic region has some skin infection that is itchy, and I need to take Allegra 180 every night for the past 4 to 5 days to sleep, or else it itches badly. Please suggest some remedy.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You may be suffering from a fungal infection that commonly affects the inner thighs, groin, and buttocks area. It can be treated by a course of antifungal treatment, which includes tablets along with creams. Do not use soap over that area. Mistreatment with steroid containing creams lead to repeated case of recurrence and also side effects due to application. Do not use steroid-containing combination creams. Please call me or contact me using the online consult option with photos for a detailed prescription. Do not delay treatment as it may spread further on your body and other people living in the household.

Hello doctor,

Thanks for the reply.

Please prescribe the medicines that I can order from the chemist. I do not use any over-the-counter medicine. I did apply T-bact for few days, but it did not help me at all.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com

You need to take some precautions for the complete cure:

1. Avoid sharing towels and soaps.

2. Avoid contact with pets.

3. Check for any other family member with a fungal infection. Then, they should take treatment.

4. Apply prescribed cream or ointment regularly for two months.

5. Apply not only on the affected area but also on the surrounding normal area.

6. Take a shower twice daily.

7. Dry your inners under the sun. Wear loose cotton clothes and avoid tight jeans.


Treatment plan:

1.Tablet Levosiz (Levocetirizine Dihydrochloride) 10 mg daily one tablet for 14 days.

2 . Lulican cream (Luliconazole) for local application twice daily for one month.
