Can econazole cream for jock itch be used in combination with over-the-counter lotrimen jock itch spray or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) sprays to suppress itching?

Probably: Usually we don't want to use two different antifungal agents at the same time but there is probably no harm in doing so. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) spray is ok but there are other otc stuff such as tricalm, itch x that may be more effective.

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

I'm around insulation in attics all the time, I hav a pretty bad rash that itches constantly on my arms.  Is there any over-the-counter remedies?

Hydrocortisone, but: Otc anti-itch creams such as cortizone-10 and calamide lotion etc..Can help relief your symptoms, but without know what is causing it, i can't say that this will do the trick for you. Try them for a few days, if not better then you should consult doc for an evaluation to find out what it is that is causing your trouble. Good luck. ...Read more

You can try Monistat or one of the other OTC meds for this. However, these may not be effective. In that case, your doctor can prescribe a prescription anti-fungal.
