Well, I got some infection in my groin when I was 12 years old (mostly fungal). Doctor gave me Candiderma and I used it periodically but it would not fully go away.It appears that it is still inside the body and needs oral meds. A new doctor I visited recently said generally at such age among children in India groin fungal infection is common. Well as per my experience it is just not on the skin but inside the body as well. I am getting the same itching on my lower abdomen which has not spread over the stomach area and itches. I thought fungal infections are only for people with compromised immunity (as per my internet knowledge). Even other doctor said that fungal and bacterial infections are common among Indians? (what the hell man!). What I observed is that when the body is under stress this infection spreads more and I am thinking if it reaches to the pancreas it would hit it hard that the pancreas would become unhealthy and this may lead to lesser production of natural insulin and thus diabetes.
Well because of pressure at home to reduce weight I would start dieting (mostly on water diet for a month) but then again this would mean less immunity while dieting and if it spread to pancreas then even though I would become slim I would be hit with diabetes. Some where I read fat cells offer immunity and if I cut fat the existing infection (yeah the one from my groin to stomach/lower abdomen) would lead to diabetes.
Some more observations in a later post!
