Doctor insights on:
I have purplish-reddish blotches in between my breasts. Sometimes the area itches. I had it for at least a few months. What could it be? Fungal?
Although i am taking anti fungal tablets my vaginal itching is not totally alright. In the course of 1o days its been 5 days and it still itches me.
Which tablets?: Pills for fungus---terbinafine-----are not effective for yeast. Usual yeast pill, fluconazole, is a single dose, sometimes repeated in a week. Yeast is certainly not the only cause of vaginal itch. Fungus is usually not that itchy. So see a GYN or dermatologist. You need to provide precise information about symptoms and about all pills or treatments. ...Read more

I got some kind of fungal infection in my legs, that area is black for now. It itches a lot, sometimes when i scratch i rip of.Some skin.
Intertrigo or Tinea: Where exactly is your rash, between your inner thighs/groin folds area? You can have a yeast (intertrigo) or fungal (tinea) infection. When the skin heals up, it usually results in a darker discoloration. Try a combination of Hydrocortisone over the counter (cortaid) and antifungal cream (clotrimazole, tinactin, lamisil) 2x/day for 2 weeks or so. Keep the area clean (gentle cleansing) and dry. ...Read more

I have fungal infection on my groun, and my scrotum itches, I've also had white bums on scrotum that itch, my scrotum tingles, could this be herpes?
Not herpes.: What you are describing doesn't sound like herpes. Herpes typically presents as a cluster of blisters that develop at the same time. The skin is typically itchy or painful before the blisters develop, then the blisters come. The fungal infection in your groin and scrotum may require a stronger antifungal. The Betamethasone combination you are using may spread the fungus and make it worse. ...Read more

Have been treating entire body for fungal infection with coconut oil rash gone skin dry and flaky now still itches really bad possible Id reaction? Symmetrical rash started on torso spread to arms and legs has reached ankles still extremely itchy on breas
Sounds fungal: Would need more background information as there are several potential causes for rash such as this. However, ruling out fungal infection is at top of list. Coconut oil has good antimicrobial properties and may have helped calm an inflammatory reaction to the infection, but does not seem to have completed the task. Would see a physician to confirm and take antifungal medication. ...Read more
I have red-brown skin sround groin area and even after applying anti fungal creams the itching is not going away,what should i do?
Rash or Fungus: in the groin area not responding to anti-fungal. Please continue to see your doc. Additionally, have you changed your laundry detergent? Are you sensitive to a certain food? Fungus loves dark and damp places. Try to get some sone in the area, keep it dry, and change underwear frequently. Don''t sit around in work out clothing. Peace and good health. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
