Thank you for your question.

I think that you would also need antibacterial cream in addition to the antifungal one.

You may also require an oral antibiotic.

I would recommend that you be seen for this as you will likely require prescription strength medications.

Let me know if you have more questions.

I.just want to ask again for another opinion this this look like an std
Dermatologist: Dr. SH, Physician replied 2 years ago

Genital herpes is a possibility in your case particularly if you have been having unprotected sex.

The best thing to do is to be examined and tested to be sure.

Let me know if you have more questions.

Does it look like it? I've been to the hospital last week and the doctor told me it was a great rash and the last doctor on this site said it didn't look like an std either
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Sorry heat rash
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
it's been non stop itching since the end of August
Dermatologist: Dr. SH, Physician replied 2 years ago

It is unlikely to be herpes because of the very fact fact that you have been symptomatic since so long.

Herpes would have healed up by now.

But I would definitely recommend that you be seen by a skin doctor preferably as you will likely require prescription strength medications to help cure this.

Please rate me before we proceed.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
