Balanitis Treatment Clotrimazole
Should I put lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra on every one of my new bumps of ringworm? They tiny and red should I start treatment right away?
Recurrent Balanitis. Tried Clotrimazole and Miconazole. Symptoms persist and recur. Been 7 months now. Please advise.
Maybe not yeast: Clotrimazole and miconazole treat yeast infections, but yeast doesn't cause all balanitis. You might have a bacterial infection or just a problem of moisture and hygiene. If all else fails, sometimes circumcision is required to prevent recurrent balanitis, especially if you also have phimosis (restriction that prevents foreskin retraction). See your doctor. ...Read more

Apply the cream at least two centimeters around the lesion for two weeks. Resolution of the infection will be apparent as the lesion no longer increases in size and shows drying centrally. Nummular Eczema can look like Ringworm but is treated differently. ...Read more

Can I use lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra antifungal cream 1% on my breast for the treatment of ringworm?

Suffering from balanitis, was prescribed timodine cream but failed to cure the condition, penis glans are inflamed and very dry & shiny in appearance?
Castellani solution: If your pharmacy or chemist does not have it, they can make or obtain it. Get the clear, modified version. It will clear very quickly. Your product was worth a try but is not much good. Balanitis is due to tiny amount of URINE fermenting under your foreskin. Rinse off daily, best in a shower. Always blot or wash off the last drop of urine after you go. A circumcision will end the problem. ...Read more
