Hi doctor,

I am a female, aged 22. I started facing some itching problems in my hip region, including the buttock cleft for almost 2 to 2.5 years now. The itching occurs occasionally, but now it has led to darkening of the involved area. Sometimes, small papules arise on the area as well. I am really concerned now as it looks extremely bad due to the pigmentation. Also, it itches a lot. Please give me a remedy regarding my problem.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • I suggest Clotrimazole 1% cream twice daily for six weeks and additionally tablet Fluconazole 150 mg per week for six weeks. This will give benefit to you.
  • You should also test the stool for helminths and ova of parasites to exclude pinworm infestation. Consult your doctor, discuss with him or her and take the treatment with consent.
