How good is blue star ointment for fungus?

How good is blue star ointment for fungus?

Blue Star is: Camphor and lard. I don't see how either of those things would get rid of a fungus. If you know you have a fungus, use an otc anti-fungal product like lotrimin, Lamisil or tinactin (tolnaftate) 2x / day for at least 30 days. Your fungus will clear up in 3-5 days, but since fungal spores live 30 days, you need to use it that long or it'll recur. ...Read more

Use lotrimin (clotrimazole): Blue star ointment has camphor and salicylates as its main ingredients. The fact that spot is getting redder suggests that ointment is irritating it more. U shd try an over the counter anti- fungal cream like lotrimin (clotrimazole) and see if that makes a difference in 5-7 days. It shd make it appear lighter. If it does not then u shd see ur doctor to see if it is fungal or not. ...Read more
