Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Thank you for your question. My name is***** and I will do my best to provide a useful input.
Would a photograph of the affected area be possible at your convenience?
Thank you for the photograph. This could be a yeast infection (candidiasis) or a dry eczema related to a skin yeast (seborrheic dermatitis). This does not respond to apple cider vinegar. I would suggest switching to 1% Lotrimin cream - mix this in a 1:1 ratio with 1% Hydrocrotisone cream and apply twice a day. Orally take Tablet Claritin 10 mg once or twice a day depending on the severity of the itching or burning and try and stay as cool and dry as possible.Give this regimen 3-5 days to work - if the rash looks like it is improving then continue the creams for 14 days or so and that should take care of the problem. If you sweat a lot in the area then additionally use Zeasorb-AF powder 5 minutes after the creams in the morning to help keep the area dry.All of the above are available over the counter without a prescription.If you don’t see any improvement in 3-5 days then it would be best to see a doctor in person.Please feel free to ask if you have any queries. I will be happy to continue further and do everything I can to provide you with the service you seek.
