Itchy Rash
An_246186 posted:
About 3 weeks ago, I noticed a red itchy rash on my inner thigh(where my thigh meets my torso). I have sensitive skin and am used to getting rashes like this. I usually put Cortizone cream on it and it goes away. I tried this, it seemed to work but came back a few days later. I have had it on and off since. I have recently started working out and it seems worse when i'm sweating from exercising. I'm not sure what else to try. Any suggestions on what it is or how to treat it?
Mary Ruth Buchness, MD responded:
Dear An_246186,
Some rashes in skin fold areas are fungal, so try an antifungal medication like clotrimazole or terbinafine for 2 weeks. If this doesn't work, you'll have to show it to a doctor.
