Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

It is a fungal infection.

If you are not allergic to oral medications then take it because oral medications are important.

Without the oral medications, fungal infection will not subside.

I suggest you take capsule Syntran (Itraconazole) 100 mg twice daily after meals for two weeks and tablet Levocetirizine 5 mg at bedtime for five to seven days. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and with their consent take the medicines.

You also need to apply Onabet (Sertaconazole Topical) 2% cream in the morning and Lulizol (Luliconazole Topical) 1% cream at night.

Keep the area clean and dry.

You need to wash the clothes in hot water separately and maintain good hygiene.

Follow up after two weeks.
