I am having a personal problem with the inside of my thighs

Customer Question

I am having a personal problem with the inside of my thighs itching. I have dry flaky white stuff down there and it itches
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?
Customer: What is the cause of that
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: A few days now. And it doesn't get better or worse. I've tried desitin and deodorant nothing seems to calm it. And yes I've had trich before.

Hi and thanks for the query.

Itching and dryness of the skin in that region can be due to a fungal infection and sometimes, also due to eczema or dermatitis.

However, since, this area is often covered in clothes, is moist and sweaty too fungal infections are the norm here. I would suggest that you start application of an antifungal and steroid ointment like Lotrimin (clotrimazole and betamethason) over the counter twice a day and keep the area dry and clean while you seek an appointment with your PCP.

Let me know if you have further questions.
