Last week I had a little bit of chafing between my thighs, which is nothing new for me. But then Sunday my clothes accidentally got washed with fabric softener, and I got a little rash and the skin started to peel a little bit and it was red. I saw my doctor for another problem yesterday and decided to bring it up. I told him the story and he saw the irritation and he gave me a prescription for Nystatin and Triamcinolone Acetonide cream, which is an anti-fungal and a corticosteroid. I've had some relief from the medicine already, the rash is getting smaller and less red. But what I was wondering was is there anything else I could do to help the peeling and raw skin, and the redness while taking the medicine. I also have to say it doesn't hurt and it hardly itches, it is just an eyesore that I would like gone.

Thanks in advance.
Matthew
