Med not the problem?: There are dozens of alternative antifungal preparations. However, often failure is due to problem with the medication reaching the fungus rather than which antifungal med used. You may do better with cream than ointment; you may need 3 or 4 times a day instead of twice; the problem may be something more than just a fungus. If initial therapy fails, best to ask pharmacist or doctor for recommend.
