The science: A fungal rash is usually intensely itchy, characterised by a visible red ring on the skin, Soliman says. To treat it Soliman recommends using products that contain ingredients clotrimazole and miconazole. These creams work either by inhibiting the growth or spread of a fungus, or by killing the fungus completely
The catch: While the fungus is present, the cream should be applied twice daily.
Once visible symptoms subside, continue using the treatment for two weeks to make sure the fungus is eradicated, Soliman says.

I hadn’t really noticed this piss-ocean forming beneath me. Then, I do not know where it came from, but one of them had a knife. He showed it to me, but I had no fear of it, I just looked. He ran the blade down inside my wet T-shirt from my throat to my belt, cutting the shirt open. The tip of the blade slid against my skin, but I did not feel hurt or cut. Next, the two of them pulled the shirt open, spreading it out to my sides to soak up still more of the puddle. Then their fingers and hands were all over me.
