Tinea Cruris - Understanding This Common Fungal Infection!

MD - Dermatology, MBBS, Fellowship In Dermatosurgery
Dermatologist, Delhi
Tinea Cruris - Understanding This Common Fungal Infection!

Also known as jock itch, ‘Tinea Cruris’ is a fungal infection of the groin; it commonly occurs in men. This disorder is primarily caused by a fungus known as dermatophytes. It is characterized by an appearance of circular patches on the skin which look similar to a ring. They usually do no harm. However, if conditions are right they can 'invade' the skin, multiply and cause infection. The conditions fungi like best are warm, moist and airless areas of skin, such as the groin.

Causes-

The fungus primarily tends to grow on the moist and warm parts of the body, such as the buttocks, thighs or the groin region. Men who are overweight are at an increased risk because of the excess sweat that provides the perfect thriving spot for the fungus. Athletes are also more vulnerable to this condition. Sharing objects such as shoes, towels and combs can also be a source of this infection.

Symptoms-

The groin becomes itchy and irritable, mainly in the crease between the top of the leg and the genitals. It is more common in men, and the scrotum may also be itchy. A red rash then develops in the groin, usually with a definite edge or border. Both groins are commonly affected. The rash often spreads a short way down the inside of both thighs.

Sometimes the infection spreads to the skin on other parts of the body (or may have first started in another area, such as athlete's foot). Fungal infections do not usually go deeper than the skin into the body and are not usually serious. 

Treatment-

This condition is usually mild, hence, can be treated with over the counter medications. It takes about a week or two for the symptoms to clear up completely. Anti-fungal creams and lotions are useful in getting rid of the infection. It is recommended to carry on with the treatment even after the symptoms subside; till you complete the required dosage. Also, continue the anti-fungal medication for at-least two weeks after symptomatic relief to prevent recurrence.

In addition to the treatments, there are certain preventive measures that you can adopt–

  1. Don’t wear the same set of clothes every day while exercising.

  2. Wear fresh and properly washed undergarments.

  3. Wear loose fitting clothes; this prevents the area from getting too moist too soon.

  4. Apply medicated talcum powder on the infected areas.

Causes, Symptoms And Prevention Of Lice

MD - Dermatology, MBBS, Fellowship In Dermatosurgery
Dermatologist, Delhi
Causes, Symptoms And Prevention Of Lice

A head louse is an insect that lives on the human scalp and feeds on human blood. The female louse lays eggs in the head and makes sure the eggs are attached to the hair shaft. It takes around eight days for the egg to hatch. The louse takes another 11 days to mature into an adult louse.

The primary cause of head louse is poor personal hygiene.

Other methods by which a person becomes infected by lice are -

1. Using combs and towels that are infested 
2. Coming in contact with another person who has this condition
3. Sharing the bed with a person who is affected by lice

Symptoms - 

When a person is affected by this condition then the following symptoms are seen :

1. Itching 

The saliva of the lice causes an allergic reaction in the scalp which leads to constant itching. It can occur in various places such as ears, scalp and the neck. It may not occur initially, but it tends to occur after a few weeks.

2. Small red bumps

Constant scratching can lead to red bumps on the skin. A bacterial infection usually occurs from constant itching. 

3. It may lead to symptoms of dandruff in the scalp.

4. Presence of various insects in the scalp.

Prevention of Lice -

Lice can be prevented by using medicated shampoos and conditioners to wash the hair. The shampoos are usually based on a chemical called permathrin. This compound is toxic for lice and helps in getting rid of it.
You can opt for the following lifestyle changes to prevent lice -

1. You should avoid sharing your hairbrush with others
2. In case you have long hair, tie it in buns or ponytails
3. Add tea tree oil to your shampoo before using it
4. Keep the scalp clean to prevent infestations
5. Avoid sharing pillows and clothes

Tips To Subdue Itching Of The Skin

MD - Dermatology, MBBS, Fellowship In Dermatosurgery
Dermatologist, Delhi
Tips To Subdue Itching Of The Skin

Skin irritants are everywhere. Even in your house, there is practically no place where there are no skin irritants. Laundry detergents, air fresheners and floor polishes are just a few factors that cause skin itching. The reason why this happens is because products like air fresheners and floor polishes take away essential oils and water from the skin which leads to dryness and irritation. This type of dry, itchy skin can also progress to skin conditions like eczema.

Here are some ways you can stop your skin from becoming dry and itchy:

1. Wear gloves

The ideal thing to do would be to wear soft, thin cotton gloves and only wear rubber gloves on top of that. Do not touch a bucket or sponge without it. Even if you cannot wear soft, thin cotton gloves underneath, at least wear the rubber gloves as this protects your hands from irritants. 

2. Rinse after swimming

Chlorine is one of the principal causes of itchiness in your skin. It is absolutely essential that once you have finished swimming you rinse your body with water and a little soap. Even more importantly, use a moisturizer with glycerin in it, as this will keep the moisture trapped inside. Glycerin is particularly good at holding on to moisture.

3. Petroleum jelly

Petroleum jelly has been proven to reduce the chances of dry, itchy skin because it contains only one ingredient. This one-ingredient formula is especially great when it is applied to sensitive skin. The reason why one ingredient is better than a moisturizer with many chemicals is because a one ingredient formula is gentler and therefore creates a protective barrier against irritants.

4. Oatmeal baths

For this kind of treatment, grind oatmeal in a blender and then sprinkle it in your bath water. Oatmeal has an anti-inflammatory substance known as avenanthramides which decreases itching and redness of the skin.

5. Cleanliness 

This is perhaps the most important tip which can be given. If you do not regularly clean your floors or wash your bed sheets in hot water than you are at a high risk of getting mites and these are one of the most common irritants of your skin.

I have fungal infection near genital. Which medicines should I take? Is fluconazole and dermikem oc + good for this? What should be the dose?

MBBS, MD - Dermatology
Dermatologist, Delhi
Hello lybrate-user Fungal Infection at groin area can be either Dermatophytic infection (Tinea Cruris) or Yeast Infection (Candidiasis). There are other skin diseases too that may happen at or around groin region. You need to be examined by a qualified MD/DNB/DVD dermatologist to reach a diagnosis. Treatment of any disease depends on diagnosis. In Dermatology, diagnosis can be made confidently only after careful visual examination of the disease. Moreover, the medications you mention should never be used without a qualified Dermatologist's prescription. Fluconazole is a Schedule H drug and is an antifungal agent. It may or may not be suitable for you depending on the type of skin disease you have. The cream that you mention contains a combination of different agents including a highly potent topical steroid. A qualified dermatologist in right mind would never prescribe this cream for any skin disease whatsoever, leave alone for any sort of fungal infection. Actually, these type of combination creams should not exist at all as they cause only irreversible damage to patients. We, Dermatologist fraternity are working hard for banning them. You could search about 'topical steroid abuse' and see videos pertaining to the same. Anyways, the best that you could do is present to a qualified Dermatologist near you for appropriate diagnosis and treatment of your condition.

Vitiligo - An Overview!

Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Delhi
Play video

Hello, friends, I am Dr. Sumit Gupta, Consultant Dermatologist, and Vitiligo Specialist at Skin Innovation clinics, New Delhi.

Today we are going to talk about Vitiligo. Vitiligo is a very common disorder characterized by white patches on the skin which can happen anywhere on the body. It is fairly common and can affect about 1-2 % of the whole population. It occurs due to loss of melanocytes or destruction of melanocytes which are the pigment-producing cells of our skin. Melanocytes produce melanin which is the pigment which causes the pigmentation or the color of our skin and due to an autoimmune mechanism, these melanocytes undergo destruction and the white patches are formed. Basically, the skin loses its capacity to re-pigment.

Talking about treatment, for the treatment of vitiligo we first need to characterize and classify the patient according to the diseases condition that the patient is suffering from - whether the patient has non-segmental vitiligo or segmental vitiligo. Segmental vitiligo normally occurs only on one part of the body, affects only one part and does not even cross the midline. Non-segmental vitiligo, on the other hand, can occur anywhere on the body.

Apart from this, we also need to make sure whether the disease is stable or is it progressive? By progressive we mean whether the regions are increasing its size or new regions are coming up or whether there is absolutely no activity. Whatever regions there are, they are not increasing for the past several months. Also, we need to make sure that the person is not suffering from any other disease, any other autoimmune disease, especially. And, the kind of treatment that would be suitable for their age, for their kind of site where the legions are.

Treatment of vitiligo often has two major pillars- one is stabilization and other is de-pigmentation. If the disease is not stable as if it is increasing its size, the regions are increasing in size or in number, then we try to stabilize it. For stabilizing, we use certain creams or certain medications. Oral medications or sometimes even whole body narrowband phototherapy which would stabilize the region by affecting the autoimmunity which is causing the destruction of melanocytes. Once the disease is stable, reasonably stable then we move on to repigmentation maneuvers , which can be again targeted phototherapy, certain creams, some kinds of phototherapy which takes help of UV rays from the sun, some kind of specialized phototherapy which is excimer lamp or targeted phototherapy or sometimes we take help of surgical maneuvers.

Surgery which we commonly like to perform for stable vitiligo is a non-cultured Melanocytes Suspension Transfer Technique , where we take a small graph of skin normally pigmented skin and from the thigh or from the buttocks and then we process it from some ways so that melanocytes can be extracted from that graft. Those melanocytes are then prepared into a suspension and the suspension id can be applied onto the white patches. If the disease is stable, then the white those white patches eventually re-pigment in during the course of time. But all this treatment modality is able to cure a sizable number of Vitiligo patients and the treatment overall is very effective. Majority of vitiligo patients can be treated effectively by the treatment modality is available to us contrary to the popular belief. Thank You!
