This disease, especially when it occurs for a long period of time, can cause significant trouble, and complicate a person's life. Adverse phenomena associated with the presence of intertrigo between the legs are reflected in the deterioration of the skin - reddening and condensation of the upper skin, which is then burdened by damp rashes, cracking and other skin lesions. In addition to such manifestations, this diaper rash is accompanied by a burning sensation, pain and discomfort during walking.

Thanks to this, it becomes possible to cope with such unpleasantness as an intertrigo between the legs.
