hello dr. natasha two large itching,flat circle spots inside my thighs close to scrotum.each on one side.they appear and after few days go away.can you help please

how long have you had these and what have you done so far?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

for a few months,didn't do anything yet

well, lesions as you describe in this area are usually fungal infections of the groin
This is also known as tinea cruris or jock itch
The important thing is to:
Keep the area clean and dry
Wear cotton underwear
Daily wash the garments which come into contact with the area (like towels).
Apply topical antifungal creams (like lotrimin) to the area twice daily for 3 weeks after washing throroughly with warm water and soap.
This should make it clear up.

If you do not notice an improvement after 3 weeks, then you need to be seen by your doctor.

I hope that I provided you with excellent service.
Please leave positive feedback if I did
