Dear Lybrate reader consult one doctor continuously both for treatment &follow up --changing doctors, not following doctor advice is responsible for treatment failure. Right thing would be after choosing doctor send pictures of your problem and details of medicines you used (send photos of cream cover and photos of tablets) so that the doctor understands your problem and suggest appropriate treatment.

You may be suffering from tinea cruris which is fungal infection of the inner thighs, groin and buttocks area. It is also called jock itch. It can be treated by taking four to six weeks of anti fungal treatment which includes tablets along with creams. Do not use soap over that area. Mistreatment with over the counter steroid containing creams like fourderm, panderm, quadriderm, dermi5, cloben g betnovate, dermikem oc, candid b etc lead to repeated case of recurrence and also side effects due to application. Do not use steroid containing combination creams. Please contact me using online consult option with photos for detailed prescription. Do not delay treatment as it may spread further on your body and also to other people living in the household.

Hello lybrate-user, the infection you are mentioning is not ringworm as per my knowledge. It is tinea, which is a fungal infection most commonly presenting near buttocks and thighs. It increases in severity with sweat and wetness. So pls take my consultation and share the pictures so that I can confirm the diagnosis and provide you with medication needed to cure it completely.

I am suffering from ringworm on my legs I used some medicines it have recovered after sometime I have stopped medicines the ringworm again came and start irritating me.

Fungal infections are due to dampness and uncleanliness. So make sure to keep your legs/ feet dry after washing or wading in water and prevent dampness as this will trigger a fungal infection. You can continue the same medication course and follow the preventive steps to avoid another infection.

Stop it. Keep the infected area clean and dry. Don't scratch the affected areas because this could spread the infection to other parts of your body ringworm usually disappear with allopathic creams but recurr after you stop using it. So I advise you to take homeopathic treatment which cure ringworm completely & permanently. No chance of recurrence. 100% cure. You can consult me online for homoeopathic treatment without side effects.
