Hi doctor,

It has been around more than six months now or may be even more time. At first, it was only small red bumps in the areas. Now, it is dark and the bumps are reddish. I am attaching some image of the rashes. My skin color is not as dark as it is right now in the rash area. Please help.



Welcome back to

I went through the pictures (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • It looks like a mixed infection (bacterial and fungal).
  • I recommend you to use a cream called Betnovate-C (combination of Betamethasone valerate and Clioquinol) twice a day and Miconazole cream (combination of Hydrocortisone and Miconazole) once a day for three weeks. It shall subside.
  • Avoid wearing wet or unclean undergarments.

For further information consult an internal medicine physician online -->
