recently ive found a round red itchy spot on my pubic area, its about an inch across and becomes dry and white after awhile
i thought it was jock itch so i bought some anti fungal creams and have been using them for about 3 weeks now, at first there was a some effect but now its just how it was when i started
what is it ?
i have yet to visit a doctor
From the symptoms nummular dermatitis needs to be ruled out. Nummular dermatitis is a sort of eczema and allergic reaction is an important cause. Take some antihistaminic like Benadryl or Claritin and apply some calamine lotion on the rash. Also wear cotton clothes and keep the skin sweat free. If the symptoms persist then please get it examined from a dermatologist.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
