Customer Question
I have some type...

I have some type of rash in my crotch area and testicles. Using Lotrimin ultra, but doesn't seem to be working to clear up. Itches like hell!

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

2 weeks--nothing. Tried baby powder too.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have dealt with exima my entire life, but always on my feet and some on hands. This isn't that.

Its usually fungal . If Lotrimin isnt helping alone, you will require prescription antifungal cream which are usually more effective e,g econazole or oxiconazole .

Other measures that will help with itch relief are using antihistamine like benadryl, avoiding itching as it triggers release of more itch mediators in our body.

Applying OTC available bond powder is also very helpful.

Plz let me know if you have any further queries.

Please reward a 5 stars rating if you are satisfied.

Wishing you a healthy life.

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.
