If you need help, ask the pharmacist. If there is any doubt that this is not a fungal infection and possibly some other problem, then, see your doctor. You can mix in a little cortisone cream for the severe itching. ...Read more

Regardless if it was going to hurt you it would have already so I wouldn't be too worried about it. ...Read more
