Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • It could be due to fungal infection.
  • Plain antifungal cream is to be used twice daily. For example, you can use Candid cream (Clotrimazole) twice daily.
  • Proper oral and topical medicine for one or two months is necessary to cure your fungal infection.
  • Remember to wear loose cotton clothing, especially when at home.
  • Avoid hot and humid climate. Keep the affected area dry and avoid synthetic innerwear.
  • If any other family members are affected, then they must also be adequately treated to prevent recurrence.
  • Please put one or two photos of the affected areas, so that the further course of medication and cream can be advised.
