it needs to be kept dry , at least until it clears up, I know how hard that is to do.. there is also a good product called NuStock ointment, but its almost impossible if the area is constantly going to be wet ..is this a white /sock or area? and is he/she sore on it? also, if there is mud, and his skin in that area is being scratched/abraded by the mud/sand/gravel/dirt, its making small breaks in the skin and letting bacteria get in and restarting the infection again , adding ointments make the skin soft but wont stop the abrasion from the mud itself.. keeping it dry and not walking in mud is about the only way to get ahead of it..
