Previously, was the diagnosis of tinea cruris a diagnosis made by a doctor?
Tinea cruris is a disease caused by a fungal infection of the skin. The location of the infection can be anywhere, usually tends to arise in closed and moist areas, such as the thighs, back, groin, buttocks. The form of skin rash in the form of skin becomes reddish, well-defined (usually in the form of a circle that is getting wider), the edges can be blisters or scaly. Treatment of tinea cruris of course must be with anti-fungal drugs, in the form of topical (ointment) or taken by mouth. Many antifungal ointments are sold freely and you can use them as an initial treatment for tinea cruris, for example those containing miconazole or clotrimazole, by following the recommended dosage and instructions for use on the packaging. While mushroom drugs that are taken can only be used according to a doctor's prescription.
The medicine you are currently using which contains chloramphenicol and hydrocortisone is actually not appropriate if you are suffering from tinea cruris, because chloramphenicol is an antibiotic whose purpose is to kill bacteria not fungi, while hydrocortisone is a class of corticosteroids to reduce inflammation which when used in fungal infections can actually cause inflammation. fungal infection is getting worse.
If you have a skin rash that has not been directly examined by a doctor, it is better to consult first to confirm a diagnosis because some skin rashes have a similar appearance, so they can be treated appropriately.
In addition to medication, make sure you also keep the infected skin from getting moist by wearing looser and absorbent clothing, taking regular baths twice a day, especially after sweating, and avoiding scratching the skin rash to prevent secondary infection.
