Can you see a dermat: Can you see a dermatologist? First stop experimenting. The "antifungal" and "antibacterial" creams which you fail to identify may be irritating and probably cause allergic reactions.These will itch. The more you use them the worse you will get. Prolonged inflammation may cause loss of pigment. You might try hydrocortisone cream, but the most important thing is to STOP EXPERIMENTING.
