Hi doctor,

I have been suffering from severe itching near pubic area and the skin turned black. Previously, I had pubic lice issue, which was cured using Permethrin lotion. I am currently using Flucort-C cream, but it is not effective. Please suggest some medicine for it. Thank you.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Nevertheless, I suggest the following medications. Consult a specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.
  1. Capsule Sporanox (Itraconazole) 100 mg twice daily for 10 days.
  2. Tablet Teczine (Levocetirizine) one tablet twice daily.
  3. Apply Sebifin (Terbinafine) cream twice daily.

Hello doctor,

After 10 days, the infection has subsided. But, the itching and black skin still persists. Itching is very severe sometimes.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • The blackness will take a month to subside as it is post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and is due to the increase in the number of melanocytes. Nevertheless, you can apply Kojivit gel twice daily.
  • I suggest Teczine-M (combination of Montelukast and Levocetirizine) as long as the itching is there and also keep the area dry by application of Abzorb powder (Clotrimazole).
  • Avoid wearing tight undergarments to prevent the recurrence as the disease by nature is very recurrent and whenever the fungus will get the suitable environment to grow, the disease will recur.
