Here you go this was the beginning of July
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

there looks to be excessive moisture and sweat there which can lead to fungal infections in the perineum

which can lead to itchy skin and redness there.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
some fungal cream or spray will clear it up? He now has tiny red dots all over him is that still part of the fungal infection?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

yes, he should be using antifungal powders and sprays on that area. I would avoid creams as this can add more moisture to the area

try to keep the area as dry as possibly

he may have to use baby powder on the area twice or three times a day to keep the area dry.

I'm not sure what you mean by tiny red dots all over him.
