Hello Rahmadani, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Tinea cruris is an infection of the skin caused by a fungus. As the name implies infection occurs in the groin area. Symptoms include a reddish-shaped rash with a rounded red border and a healing center and feels itchy.
In accordance with the cause of the fungus, of course the right treatment is antifungal / antifungal drugs such as miconazole or clotrimazole. While mometasone furoate is a type of corticosteroid that functions to overcome allergic problems or inflammation of the skin. So it can be concluded that the use of mometasone furoate is not appropriate in tinea cruris.
However, both antifungal or corticosteroid use must be as per the doctor's indication. Therefore it is advisable for you to see a doctor for proper examination and treatment. It is also to see whether your complaint is a tinea cruris or not.
For now, all you can do is:
Eat healthy and nutritious foods
Avoid using personal items at the same time
Keep the groin skin condition dry and not moist
Change clothes immediately if you sweat
Avoid using underwear that is too tight
Maintain cleanliness of the body, especially the groin
So, hopefully useful.
