The skin of this area is reddish and scaly. Sometimes accompanied by blisters on the edges of skin disorders. Tinea feels itchy and sometimes sore. This disorder can spread to the surrounding skin.
You should consult with a dermatologist. No need to feel ashamed because it is the duty of the doctor's profession to treat patients. You should also tell a complete and complete history of the disease, don't forget to also tell about the history of the medicine you have taken.
