Expert:  Dr. S. Attili replied 5 years ago.
Hi. you can either upload the pictures to photobox or picasa web albums and paste the link here. Alternatively you can email them to***@******.*** with the subject line 'FAO dermatology expert Dr. Sasi Attili'. Please note though that emails might take up to 24 hours to be forwarded to me, though usually it is within a few hours. I shall get back once I receive the photos. If you don't hear back from me within 24 hours its usually because you have sent the email incorrectly. Hope to hear from you soon.

would like a quick response to my question
Expert:  Dermadoc replied 5 years ago.
i would like to offer an opinion.
this sounds like you have got a rash due to inflammation and a mixture of bacterial and yeast infection due to the friction most likely.
you need to mix and apply neosporin cream with lotrimin cream and apply it twice daily for a week. it should start resolving in 2- 3 days.
both the creams are available over the counter.
also just keep a lookout for small fluid filled blisters in clusters, that is indicative of herpes. in case that occurs, you can continue the creams application, and will need a course of oral antiviral medication called valacyclovir, for which you will need a prescription.
hope all goes well.
please let me know if you have any queries.
