Hello,

This type of scaly skin with severe itching is usually due to a chronic fungal infection. Fungal infection occurs very fast in skin areas which are warm and humid - since the thighs remain covered most of the time, the chances of the skin picking up a fungal infection is quite high. Continuous itching and peeling of the skin can cause the skin to become scaly with a dry rash

It is also quite difficult to clear up the infection since recurrence is quite frequent.

Please apply Lotrimin cream, available without a prescription twice a day. Also apply Cortizone ointment once daily.

Please wear loose clothes which allow the skin to breath. Skirts or loose cotton pants are ideal.

If the condition contiues after 10 days, please consult a doctor for a checkup.
