Grainy lesions are commonly seen on the stomachs of men and are actually fungal infections, though this fact is often overlooked. A lot of people call these lesions ‘ring worm’ infections and self medicate with locally available ring worm medication. This is however, a wrong approach as these medicines may contain chemicals like steroids which are actually not beneficial to the condition.
What is to be done?
It is best that a dermatologist is consulted at the earliest. A dermatologist can perform a KOH test and determine if it is an infection or an allergy. If it is an infection that is present, oral antibiotics are prescribed to be had for 10-14 days, which leads to a permanent improvement of the condition.
