Can you tell me what creams has she applied on it till date to treat it ?

Did she use some steroid cream ?

Does she play any sports or does she sweat a lot daily ?

Is she obese or over weight ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have recently begun to apply a mixture of cortisone, mucipren, topical nystatin.
No she does not play sports; she is not overweight at all, if anything she is the opposite.
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

This is a patch of tinea corporis caused by dermatophyte infection.

I would suggest her to use Lotrimin cream on the area three times a day.

She would need to apply this for a period of 6 weeks.

Do let me know if you have any further concern .
