Hello

Thanks for your query at DoctorSpring.com

I can understand your concern. It may be boil or some other infection. But I need to see it clearly to tell you the exact diagnosis.

Can you please send me a few more pics? Maybe a couple of them zoomed out?
Please write back.
Thanks


Patient replied :

It itches badly everyday. It's been there for 2 years and I feel it has increased . I've never put any ointment . But everyday for better friction between the legs. I use body lotion.

Patient replied :

if I zoom out further you might not be able to see it. If you could zoom into the attachment in sending . Could you advise me . The only symptom is that it itches. It's been there since a while. What do you advise me to do.


Hello,
Without some more pictures it is very difficult to give an exact diagnosis.

It seems to be lichen planus. Lichen planus is a chronic condition where there could be lesions which are scaly n violaceous.

I recommend application of a prescription strength steroid cream like mometasone furoate once daily for two weeks.

You can apply a moisturizing cream on the area twice a day. Also taking tab. Claritin will help with the itching.

You will need to follow up with your doctor to make sure how long you need to continue the cream n when to stop it.

Its a chronic condition but it's not serious and can be kept in check. However we cannot eliminate it completely.

If you can still send me a better picture which you have clicked from a slight distance it would help to see the lesions clearly which i can't do now.

If the recommendations i have given are not helpful i.e there is no improvement at all, please consult your dermatologist in a week.

Please let me know if you have any queries.
