My wife has this rash for about two weeks. I have meant to ask someone to reassure her it is nothing serious. What kind of rash is this? It does not hurt her, but the skin is irritated, sensitive, and itchy. It is located around the groin but does not go further inside the vagina or near the anus. She believes it is a fungal infection, but how true is that?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have seen the attachment (attachment removed to protect patient identity) and would like to confirm that this is a particular fungal infection with normal whitish flaky skin over a localized region and scaling present along with the classical sign of itching present. This can be controlled by the application of an antifungal cream or ointment like ointment Luliconazole 1 % twice a day for seven days and also oral intake of tablet Itraconazole 200 mg once a day for five days.
Avoid local moisture development and keep the area dry and airy. Avoid any frictional injury due to tight clothes, and it would worsen the itch and sensitivity. You may in the meantime use an antifungal Clotrimazole 1 % dusting powder locally to restrict the spread till medications are procured.
