Big black circles on upper thigh region

Postby Siv » Mon Feb 08, 2010 10:58 pm

Hi,

I have big dark circles on both upper thighs, each circle is about 4 to 5cm in diameter, i have 3 big circles on right thigh and one small circle with 2cm diameter on my left thigh.

also itching has increased rapidly on areas surrounding penis and buttocks.

Is this any disease, what could have caused it and what is its solution. Is my condition serious.

Regards,
Siv

Hello,Fungus infections are quite common and can spread easily in a community,like hostels.These present with skin patches with borders which show extension with a central clearance.Itching is common.Groin,buttocks and thigh are common sites.The fungus would respond to external application of antifungal cremes like canesten or miconazole creme.Personal hygene is important.Antifungal dusting powders are used to prevent recurrence and reinfection.Severe cases need oral antifungal antibiotic.
Best wishes.
