I am a 72 year old woman and am having a rash in my crouch area. Not sexually active for almost 5 years..I also think i may a bladder infection. I also have a rash under my right breast. Tried Zinc oxide, monkey butt. and vagisil wipes for the rash and itching also. i got some relief but not completely.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

No I just wasn't sure i needed to. Ive been out of state doing some in home care, and it just started after I had a sisus infection

Amoxicillin

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
The itching, rash is most probably due to fungal infection.
It can occur after an antibiotic treatment.
Fungal infection can take time to recover.
It usually occurs due to sweating or moisture, especially in warm weather.
Other probable is dermatitis, allergy.
Please keep the area dry and cool, open when possible.
Use cotton and loose underwear.
You can apply antifungal cream or spray like Lamisil or clotrimazole.
Hydrocortisone cream can be added too.
Those are available over the counter.
Benadryl or claritin can be taken for itching.
If you do not see any improvement, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
You may need oral antifungal medicine which is a prescription drug.
I hope this information will be helpful.
