Hi Dr Ashori here, please give me a moment to reply.
Have you tried anything for this yet? And do you believe it has gotten worse?
It could be psoriasis, lichen plauns, eczema, atopic dermatitis or tinea cruris. If you have a picture of the area I would be able to give you a better idea. If you have a friend or partner or someone who can take a good picture with good lighting to show what the skin looks like that would be helpful.
The scaliness could be either the fungal infection (tinea cruris) or it could be the eczema or atopic dermatitis.
You can try using a topical steroid such as hydrocortisone 1% for 2 weeks along with a really strong moisturizer.
At the same time you can use terbinafine cream for one week, which helps with fungal infections.
After one week it should be a lot better.
You can then check back in here and I can point you in the right direction from there.
That's normal and it will go away once the inflammation goes down.
