2. Itching

The itchiness this skin condition entails is what gives it its name. In a majority of cases, patients report that the itch is intensely discomforting and becomes progressively more problematic till the rash begins to subside. Scratching the skin surface tends to make the skin more sensitive and raw, further impeding the healing process. Regular application of topical anti-fungal creams may help provide respite but it is best to use doctor-recommended ointments and nothing else when it comes to these.
