What is the best treatment for itch and eczema at the groin area?
I suffered from a Ringworm infection on my Scrotum about 5 weeks ago. I spent a few nights scratching the night away and had little to no rest. I couldn't take it anymore so I went to the National Skin Center to have it checked out. The doctor did a skin scrape test on me and told me that what I have is Eczema instead. He prescribed me some oral and ointment medications after. What is the name of this kind of Eczema, and what is the best treatment for it?
Hi, thanks for the question. From your desciption, it does sounds like you may have scrotal eczema. This is often very itchy, and scratching the area will make the eczema worse.
Your doctor would probably have prescribed you with a mild topical steriod cream. This will help to settle the eczema.
Some antihistamines to relief the itch may be helpful too. Importantly, you should refrain from scratching the areas as this will make the eczema more persistent and recurrent.
