Fungal infection in past Recurrent episode
Welcome to icliniq
Miconazole gel twice daily for 30days (on groin region )
Moisturex soft cream on beard lesions for 20 days.
Ketoconazole soap or Dersil AF body wash for bath (for groin region)
Candid dusting powder (Clotrimazole dusting powder)after bath for 30 days.
Tab Levocetrizine 5mg at night for 15 days(if itching).
Avoid Scratching or rubbing lesions as it may cause secondary bacterial infection and spreading of fungal infection. Keep groin region dry as moisture favours fungal growth. Wear loose thin comfortable cotton inners. Stay in cool well ventilated room/ environment .
Avoid humidity/heat/maceration/occlusion/friction in groin. Hygiene plays very important role, so maintain proper hygiene. Bath twice daily with lukewarm water. Pat dry area and apply cream with clean hands. Wash clothes separately in hot water. Use separate towel/soap for groin region. Avoid sharing personal belongings as it is contagious(fungal infection in groin)
Luliconazole cream is also effective as Miconazole for fungal infection in groin.(can use both alternatively)
