Customer Question

I had gastric bypass 10 years ago but did not have the excess flab removed. Now with my belly sagging and flabby upper thighs I suffer from excessive irritation between my legs where my belly and thighs meet. I understand the my skin sweats in that area and I do keep it clean, but I get so raw that it is unbearable. I have used several creams and powders but nothing helps. Any suggestions?

My suggestion is to have your doctor swab this for the lab.

This will reveal the fungus or other bug that it is.

You then can get the correct cream, or even oral medication.
