Your symptoms are suggestive of Tinea cruris which is a fungal infection.
Tinea Cruris Treatment
The treatment of Tinea cruris includes the use of:
1. Topical Antifungals
Antifungal creams that are applied on the skin to treat T. cruris include:
a. 1% Clotrimazole cream (Lotrimin) is applied twice a day for around four weeks. The skin lesions usually clear in one to two weeks (clinical cure) but the antifungal medication needs to be applied for another two weeks to eradicate the fungi (mycological cure).
b. Antifungal powders are also used since they absorb the sweat and control the fungi especially during hot days. Examples include Miconazole powder which is used once or twice a day.
2. Systemic Antifungals
Antifungal taken by mouth to treat T. cruris include:
1. Terbinafine (Lamisil)
2. Itraconazole (Sporanox)
3. Treating Concomitant Fungal Infections
All fungal infections on the body like on the hands, feet and nails should also be treated.
