Correct diagnosis: Rashes such as poison ivy/oak, fungal (ringworm), bacterial infections (impetigo) etc. Can be cured. Rashes such as eczema, psoriasis, ichthyosis etc...Are not curable, only treatable. Viral rashes such as chicken pox, measle, roseola etc. Will heal on their own with or without treatment. Without knowing what type of rash you have, I can't advise how to treat it. Consult doc. Good luck. Read more

Although I am taking anti fungal tablets my vaginal itching is not totally alright. In the course of 1o days its been 5 days and it still itches me.

Which tablets?: Pills for fungus---terbinafine-----are not effective for yeast. Usual yeast pill, fluconazole, is a single dose, sometimes repeated in a week. Yeast is certainly not the only cause of vaginal itch. Fungus is usually not that itchy. So see a GYN or dermatologist. You need to provide precise information about symptoms and about all pills or treatments. Read more

My boby itches all the time from head to toe would an over-the-counter allergy pill help?

Try Allegra/generic: All anti-histamines now available are over-the-counter (otc). Allegra (or generic fexofenadine) is a good choice for allergy, itch, hives, hay fever. Other otc meds are: zyrtec, claritin, (loratadine) benedryl etc.
Also you may want to get seen to get tested for liver disease which is a possible cause of pruritis (itch) without rash. Read more

Hi sir, I am having green discharge plus itching vagina from past 20 days. Doctor prescribed one can tablet and try cream. Still it itches at night?

Exam?: Did you see your doctor in person and have swabs taken for diagnosis of the discharge? This could be about 5 different infections, that require different treatments. However, if you did receive the correct treatment, and it was only a day or 2 ago, it can take a few days for the symptoms to totally resolve. Get seen again if you are not improved by day 3-4 of treatment. Read more

You: You must go in and have a complete evaluation including cultures. This is very important. There are other possible infections that could cause this and since your symptoms have not improved and are worse with swelling and redness, then you must be seen immediately to be evaluated and treated.
