Thank you for your question. My name is***** and I will do my best to provide a useful input.
Would a photograph of the affected area be possible at your convenience?
Thank you for the photographs. Okay so this does look most like a yeast infection for which Econazole normally works very well. However you may be allergic to it which is what is causing the burning after its application. As such I would suggest stopping it and trying the following:
1% Clotrimazole cream + Neosporin cream: Mix in equal parts and apply over the affected areas twice a day for 7 days and then once at night for 7 days more. Please complete the 14 day treatment even if the symptoms clear up sooner. If you don’t see an improvement within 48-72 hours of initiating therapy then add Cortizone-10 cream to the regimen - that is mix it with the other two creams in a 1:1:1 ratio and apply twice a day as described above. Wash the area with a mild soap like dove while bathing.
Tablet Advil 400 mg twice a day (after meals) for 1-2 days will help the burning.
Once the creams are stopped it will be important to keep the groins as clean and dry as possible to prevent a recurrence. To this end using Zeasorb-AF powder once or twice a day for a few weeks will be very useful.
NOTE: All of the above are available without a prescription.Please feel free to ask if you have any queries. I will be happy to continue further and do everything I can to provide you with the service you seek.
