Are there any anti fungal meds sold OTC for thrush? Like nystatin?

Thrush: I know you have another physician's answer. But, my worry is why you are having this symptom and why you have not been to the doctor or dentist to find out why this is happening to you. I worry that there may be an underlying condition or infection that we need to diagnose. ...Read more

Several drugs exist which lower cholesterol by inhibiting an enzyme in liver cells (hmg-coa reductase) that is involved in cholesterol synthesis. These all have generic names that end in -statin, e.g. Atorvastatin (lipitor) and Simvastatin (zocor).

Betamethasone: These medicines are for fungus; the clotrimazole/betamethasone mixture will help do to the steroid component, but it should never be applied to areas of thin skin (axillae, groin, face). The clotrimazole component is for fungus, as well as the other ointments you mentioned ...Read more

Not antifungal: Mupirocin, keflex and septra (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) aren't antifungals, those are antibiotics, topical and systemic. Miconazole cream though is the antifungal, it's OTC, needs at least 2 weeks of application, but you ultimately want to see your doctor, it might not be ring worm to start with, also if you have a pet at home, it needs to be taken care of, wish you all wellness. ...Read more

I have a fungal rash on my right breast that wont go away even with the 2 weeks using nystatin & triamcolone, help?

Fungus treatment: Nystatin is a medication that is used for yeast infections. It does not work for fungal infections. Intertrigo is a common condition that results in redness and wet skin under the breasts. This is caused by moisture and skin touching skin. Occasionally, a yeast will colonize the area. Keeping the area dry and avoiding skin to skin contact is most helpful. ...Read more

I keep getting under breast fungAl infections... All my blood work is normal. 2 week diflucan (fluconazole) n nystatin didn't work. What can I do now?My life suffer

Rash under breasts: Please see a dermatologist. There are other rashes that look like a fungal infection. Inverse psoriasis is found in the armpits, groin, under the breasts and in other skin folds on the body.It is particularly subject to irritation from rubbing and sweating because of its location in skin folds and tender areas. Please see a dermatologist. I'd be willing to bet it's inverse psoriasis. ...Read more

I still have red rash on testicles 4 wk I saw a doctor and was told it is a fungal infection. Doctor proscribed nystatin it helped a little. Advice?

Try other treatment: The most common red rash involving scrotum, groin, etc. is tinea cruris (jock itch), caused by a type of fungus that does not respond to nystatin. Discuss w/ your doctor. Or try an OTC jock itch cream, on the same pharmacy shelves as athletes foot products; look for active ingredient terbenafine or clotrimazole. There are other possible causes; see a dermatologist if OTC treatment doesn't work. ...Read more

Can I use powders and drying agents on my skin to prevent fungal infections?

Fungus & moisture: Fungus like warm moist environments. Areas with skin-on-skin contact (the folds of your body, armpits, groin, under breasts, etc) or increased sweating are more prone to fungal infections than drier skin areas. Drying agents, like powders, can help prevent many fungal infections by minimizing the moist environment they prefer. ...Read more
