Thanks for posting your query.

I can understand your concern.

The darkening in the groin area is due to fungal infection called tinea.

The best treatment for it would be application of terbinafine cream twice a day for two to three weeks.

You might need a prescription from your doctor for the same.

The fungal infection will resolve in two to three weeks. However, the darkening will take time to resolve as the fungal infection leaves behind darkening of skin which slowly lightens over a couple of months.

The spots that you mentioned are not clearly visible on the photos. Would it be possible for you to send me a clearer image of the spots?


Patient replied :

the groin area is photo is visible for you? also tell me that i dont need to worry regarding the groin area problem?


Thanks for your reply.

There is nothing to worry about the fungal infection in your groins, it will resolve well with the treatment.

I could see the fungal infection quite in the photos.

Take care
