Skin Infection in Lower Abdomen
Hi,

A month ago (around 26th Dec2010), I developed some skin infection near the men private area (upper thighs area).

Although, I was not too sure I thought its a common itching that has taken place and I used to apply talcum powder/medicated gel/even mustard oil to get relief. But when the skin condition worsened I had a visit to a Skin Specialist and he mentioned some fungal and Bacterial infection. Both side of skin was irritated very much and wounded.

I went through a set of medicines/creams and as of today, it is better (60-70% better). However, doctor was expecting it to be in a good condition or rather almost healed. Now, he has noted that skin has stopped healing somewhat and on both the sides of the balls area some pimples/rashes are still there.

So, he has suggested few skin/blood tests:

1. Complete Haemogram
2. Blood Glucose (Random - for sugar)
3. UGF
4. KOH (10%)
5. Pus Gram ST.

Medicines prescribed till now:

1. T AMC (500m) (Azithromycin Tablets IP)
2. T AF-154 (Fluconazole USP 400 mg)
3. HHZole cream (mometasone furoate and clotrimazole cream) / Mycoseal-FT cream (as an alternative).
4. Fulite cream
5. Abzorb Fungal Powder
6. T Kineto DP (Serratiopeptidase)
7. T Nucort M8 and then later M16  (methylprednisolone IP 8 mg/16 mg)


My Medical History: I am Overweight with High B.P.

Please advice.

Thanks in advance!

Hello,
It can be due to fungal infection of the groin. The KOH skin test which the doctor has ordered should help in confirming the diagnosis if it is a fungal infection. If it comes positive then you may continue with topical antifungals which you are already using but you have to stop the steroids.
I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
