Erythrasma is a chronic bacterial infection usually seen in skin folds.
Erythrasma is caused by Corynebacterium minutissimum. The typical appearance is a reddish-brown slightly scaly patch with sharp borders. The lesions occur in moist areas such as the groin, axilla, and skin folds, and may itch slightly.
The incidence of Erythrasma is higher in warm climates. It is most prevalent among individuals who are overweight or have diabetes.
The symptoms of Erythrasma are mildly itchy, slightly scaly, reddish-brown lesions most often found in the axilla, groin, between the toes, and in skin folds.

Gently scrubbing the lesions with antibacterial soap may clear the disease. Topical erythromycin gel is very effective as well. In severe cases, your doctor may prescribe oral erythromycin.
In general, a single consultation with Dr. Kapoor would cost you about INR 1000/-.
