    I suffer from skin infection that affect mostly perineal area. Please solve this problem.
    Simply rub extra-virgin olive oil or a combination of equal parts of olive oil and honey on your rash a few times daily until it heals completely. Alternatively, you can add a little turmeric powder to some olive oil and apply it two or three times a day for a few days. Packed with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric soothes rashes and relieves itching. Or you can also apply Clobenate GM cream on the affected area any time you feel any itching or discomfort and especially after having a bath. As a general advice: Try to keep yourself clean and wear clean and fresh clothing (drying them in direct sunlight is beneficial as it kills any bacteria left on them). However, If the problem persists I suggest you to consult your health care provider or a dermatologist.

    3. The area feels itchy. It might also be flaky and dry. You might even experience hair loss in the infected area.

    Diagnosis:
    The skin in the area will be gently scraped off and the sample will be collected. Then, the sample will be viewed under a microscope. That will help discerning, which type of fungus is causing the infection.

    Treatment:

    The following treatment regime must be followed:

    1. The skin must be kept dry and clean.
    2. Fungal creams are best. Creams that contain miconazole, ketoconazole, clotrimazole or oxiconazole are excellent for fungal infections.

    4. To prevent the infection from spreading, wash your towels in warm water and use clean towels every time you bathe. Also, clean the bathroom and wear freshly washed clothes.

    Inflammation of The Vagina - Could it be Vaginitis?

    MBBS, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Advanced Infertility

    Inflammation of The Vagina - Could it be Vaginitis?

    Vaginitis is the inflammation of one’s vagina accompanied by pain during intercourse, mild vaginal bleeding, painful urination, vaginal itching or a considerable change in the amount, odor and color of the vaginal discharge.
    Causes:
    1. A certain level of bacteria is normally found in one’s vagina (lactobacilli). Now if this count is outnumbered by the other bacteria (anaerobes), the balance in the vagina gets disrupted giving rise to bacterial vaginosis. Such kind of vaginitis usually stems from sexual intercourse with multiple sex partners.
    2. Yeast infection occurs due to an overgrowth of fungal organisms in one’s vagina, especially Candida Albicans.
    3. Trichomoniasis caused by the one celled microscopic parasite ‘Trichomonas Vaginalis’ generally spreads through sexual intercourse with an infected partner. The condition also makes one vulnerable to various sexually transmitted infections.
    4. Spermicidal products, scented detergents, perfumed soaps, douches, vaginal sprays or foreign objects such as tampons that were not taken out or tissue paper might trigger allergic reactions or irritation in the vaginal tissues.
    5. Surgical removal of the ovaries or reduced estrogen count after menopause might cause thinning of the vaginal lining, thereby resulting in vaginal burning, dryness or irritation.


    Treatments:
    1. For Bacterial vaginosis, your doctor might advise the application of clindamycin cream or metronidazole gel as well as metronidazole tablets which are to be taken orally.
    2. Yeast infections might be treated with an anti-fungal suppository or cream, for instance, tioconazole, butoconazole, clotrimazole or miconazole. Oral medication, such as fluconazole is also administered to treat the same.
    3. Metronidazole or tinidazole tablets are prescribed for Trichomoniasis.
    4. Estrogen in the form of rings, tablets or vaginal creams is effective in treating low estrogen level after menopause.
    5. For non-infectious vaginitis primarily caused by objects, such as tampons, sanitary napkins, laundry detergent or new soap, it is essential to pinpoint the source of the irritation and avoid them. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

    Pitted Keratolysis: Tips to Manage it!

    MBBS, Diploma in Venerology & Dermatology (DVD), DDV, MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy
    Dermatologist, Pune
    Pitted Keratolysis: Tips to Manage it!

    Pitted keratolysis is a skin condition that affects the soles of your feet. As a result of this disease, the skin on the forefoot or heel turns white with pitted clusters. This is often accompanied by an offensive odor and is worse when the skin is wet. This odor is the main reason patients seek treatment for this skin condition. If left untreated, this can last for many years.

    People who suffer from excessive sweating and those who wear closed shoes for extended durations have a high risk of suffering from this condition. Pitted Keratolysis is a bacterial infection where the bacteria multiply in moist conditions and release enzymes that destroy the horny cells of the foot soles. 

    With time, this turns into characteristic crater like pits on the skin. They also produce sulphur compounds simultaneously that lead to the odor.

    Treatment for this skin condition can be categorized under medicinal treatments and home remedies.

    Medicinal remedies:

    1. One of the ways to treakt this disease is to treat the hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating that triggers it.
    2. Topical fusidic acid ointments or clotrimazole ointments can also provide some relief.
    3. Your doctor may also prescribe oral antibiotics to clear stubborn lesions.
    4. Other treatment options include anti-bacterial soap and injectable botulinum toxin. Using a strong antiperspirant with aluminum chloride can also resolve the issue.

    Home remedies:

    1. The first thing you must do if you suffer from this condition is keep your feet dry. Wearing socks with your shoes is a good idea as this keeps your feet dry and ventilated. Thus, keeping the bacteria from multiplying. After having a bath, pay special attention to drying your feet. You could even use a hair dryer on your feet.
    2. Wash your feet with soap and water at least twice a day. You could also use an antiseptic cleanser or antibacterial soap.
    3. Try and reduce the number of hours you wear closed shoes. Whenever possible, wear open toed sandals. Do not wear the same shoes for two days in a row without giving them time to dry out.
    4. If possible, change your socks at least once in the day.
    5. Do not share footwear or towels with anyone else.
    6. Apply antiperspirants to the soles of your feet.
    7. Soak your feet in half a bucket of water with 15-20 drops of tea tree oil. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist.
