Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com. I understand your concern.

This looks like a fungal infection, and I would advise you to apply Clotrimazole ointment mixed with calamine lotion 2-3 times daily for a week.

Additionally, she will also need Tab. Levocetirizine 5 mg once daily at bedtime till the patch subsides.

If the lesion seems to get worse even after the treatment advised, please get it examined by a dermatologist.


Hope this was helpful,
Feel free to discuss further,
Regards.
