Welcome to iclinq.com.
I have read your query. In my opinion, you are suffering from Tinea cruris, which is a fungal infection of the skin. I advise you to keep the area dry because moisture can aggravate the fungal infection. You can apply Luliconazole cream twice daily on the lesion, and also on the normal skin of around 2 cm around the lesion for three weeks. After applying the cream, you should apply Clotrimazole dusting powder for three weeks. This powder helps in absorbing the moisture and reducing the friction of the area.
You also take tablet Levocetirizine 5 mg one tablet after dinner for ten days. This is for the management of itching. You can continue it beyond ten days if you have severe itching.
I hope this helps.
Tinea cruris.Treatment plan:
Topical antifungal cream and dusting powder along with oral antihistamines.Preventive measures:
Please avoid tight fitting clothes.
Avoid applying over the counter creams. These creams may contain steroid which can damage the skin.
Also, completely dry the inner wear before wearing.
Follow up after three weeks.
