    Good morning. Sorry about this issue. times corporis (eczema) is a fungal infection which can be spread by close contact. however, some conditions aid its proliferation: a warm moist environment, use of antiseptic soap. thus, it is not necessarily sexually transmitted. you can use over the counter topical formulations such as Whitefield's ointment for about 4 weeks. please note that you need to use this topical agent for a long time as fungal infections are difficult to treat. kindly see your doctor if you don't see any appreciable changes. cheers
