Athletes Foot Taking Ketoconazole For Two Weeks Still Stinging
Most likely: Most anti-fungal creams are Category B to begin with, so they are safe to use. The amount of systemic absorption is minimal with topical foot creams as well., assuming you have no op[en sores the cream would go in. Check with your pharmacist to assure the cream you use is category B and then you would be fine in either case. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've been taking sopranox for 4 days and using Lamisil (terbinafine) cream for 5 days, how come my ringworm is still spreading?
Is really ringworm?: Is it really ringworm? I don't want to doubt your doc's expertise, but skin conditions are frequently misdiagnosed. Although, it may be a little too early to expect major improvement from the treatment you're getting for your "ringworm", at least i would not expect it to be spreading. ...Read more

Which medicine is good for nail fungal infection? I m already taking fluconazole ip 150mg one time in a week from 6 months.
Onychomycosis: Nailbed infections start in the nail matrix and need to grow out from there. This process takes longer in the toenails than the fingernails (+/- 12 mo vs 6 mo). Treatment w/ fluconazole/terbinafin usually daily; some other agents (itraconazole) 1 wk/mo (or other permutations) w/75-80% cure. Sometimes the nail has to be removed. Newer topicals may as well help alone/in combo w/oral antifungals. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
For over 4yrs I have taken a full course of sporanox (itraconazole) and applied daktarin tinkcha, am now using ciclopirox to treat my fingernail fungus?
Sample to lab.: Nail fungus can be very difficult to cure 100%. You may want a doctor to test the nail by taking a sample and sending it to a lab to see if it is a callused or traumatized nail or if it is indeed fungus, if 4 years of antifungals did not work to improve the nails. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I've been using griseofulvin for months now but i still have hair loss and itchiness, should I switch to lamisil (terbinafine)?
Itchy Scalp: It depends what you are treating, Griseofulvin does not treat hair loss unless the hair loss is caused by a fungus. If you are treating a fungus was a skin scraping done to identify if a fungus was present? If not you may not have a fungus. You may have seborrheic dermatitis which is a common skin disorder that mainly affects your scalp, causing scaly, itchy, red skin and stubborn dandruff. ...Read more

Lamisil (terbinafine): This compound may have liver toxicity. Although there is no direct proscription against drinking alcohol with this medication, since alcohol may also have toxic effects on the liver it would probably be judicious to avoid drinking while taking it, although no direct evidence to avoid taking it. ...Read more

I have tinea versicolor all over my body I've been using the prescription clotrimazole betamethasone for 2 weeks and still no results.what is wrong?
Switch Rx's: Betamethasone for generalized tinea versicolor might be a ilttle bit strong and maybe even counterproductive. I'd get a second opinion. Is this really tinea versicolor? Physicians with tinea versicolor often just swallow a single ketoconazole tablet, go running and break a sweat, and this typically clears it for weeks. You have lots of easy options. Best wishes. ...Read more
