Will clobetasol propionate help with male jock itch?

Will clobetasol propionate help with male jock itch?

Not a good treatment: "Jock itch" is not a diagnosis. There are dozens of possible causes for genital itch. Begin with a specific definition of the cause. Successful treatment flows from that. Clobetasol, as a super-potent steroid, is prone to cause ugly, annoying purple streaks and thin, wrinkled skin when used on the genital skin. Avoid use in this area for more than a few days. ...Read more

How is cortaid (hydrocortisone) cream used for herpes?

How is cortaid (hydrocortisone) cream used for herpes?

Don't use!: Cortaid (hydrocortisone) should never be used on herpes, and can make the herpes worse! Cortaid (hydrocortisone) is a topical steroid, and steroids weaken the immune system. Herpes is viral infection, and your immune system needs support to fight it off. If it is a milder outbreak, you can try over-the-counter abreva 5 times a day for up to 10 days, but if not improving or if bad outbreak, see your dr for prescription treatment. ...Read more

Will calamine help cure ringworm . Keticonzale failed terbafone failed fluconzale failed.

Will  calamine help cure ringworm . Keticonzale failed terbafone failed fluconzale failed.

No, but....: Calamine will not cure ringworm - period. However, with everything that you have tried, I would highly suspect the diagnosis is either wrong or you did not use the previous treatments long enough, as skin fungal infections can take months to clear. If you have not seen dermatologist and had scrapings and confirmation of the diagnosis, that's where you need to start. Calamine helps with itch only. ...Read more
