How To Prevent Yeast Infection In The Groin Does Not Spread?
Morning, if I want, I want to ask. I have ringworm on the groin, the 1 is almost dry, 2 are reddish, but the faint circular shape has not yet appeared. While 3 today I treat with ketocobazole 2% The affected groin is only 15-18cm away towards the genital lips, is it possible if the genitals also contracted the fungus. Because of me a few days of vaginal discharge it’s just not smelled. I was afraid that the vaginal discharge was due to fungus. Is it true that vaginal discharge is due to fungus? How fast is the treatment? Then how to prevent the fungus from spreading. Thank you

We understand the concerns that you feel. Ringworm or also called a fungal infection on the skin.
Fungal skin infections often cause itching, redness and discomfort. Fungal infections in the groin (groin area, genitals and surrounding areas) are also called medical tinea cruris, while those in the stomach, thighs, legs, arms or other body parts are also called tinea corporis. Fungal skin infections are often caused by dermatophytes which are contagious, spread and require continuous treatment to disappear. Its characteristics include embossed skin such as reddish plaques, lines or circles or have edges shaped like a cloud and scaly / slightly scaly edges, with edges that are sharply demarcated and are more active to spread to healthy tissue.
Related to your question, fungal infections in the thigh area can extend to the groin / groin area even to the abdominal area, if not treated routinely and correctly.
There are also other causes, namely skin candidiasis which is also caused by fungi of different types. Candidiasis will cause symptoms of itching, hot sensation on the skin, shiny or there is a picture of vaginal discharge on the surface of the skin, reddish rashes to blisters on the skin.
Associated with vaginal discharge that you experience, please note that vaginal discharge can be both normal and abnormal. As long as you feel no symptoms such as itching, heat / pain in the vagina, vaginal odor, change color to yellowish greenish or gray, and shaped like a lump of white milk, then you do not need to worry, because without these symptoms, including normal vaginal discharge.
If your yeast infection continues to spread and is not treated adequately, the infection will spread to the genitals and can lead to vaginal discharge. To find out the cause of vaginal discharge, it requires a more complete history taking and ideally an examination by taking a sample of vaginal discharge to assess the exact cause.
Fungus on the skin is an organism that is quite "stubborn", so that if the management is not organized and hygiene is poorly maintained, the fungus will easily come and cause symptoms again.
An important role in avoiding mold growth is to maintain personal hygiene including bathing every day, changing into clean clothes every day, avoiding moist areas / environments, not using clothes that are too tight, washing clothes every day and maintaining the cleanliness of the surrounding environment. Antifungal drugs must be used regularly. If topical treatment (directly applied to the skin) is difficult to remove fungus, then oral treatment can be considered.
Consult directly to the nearest doctor or dermatologist, to get a more specific examination and appropriate treatment.
