If your symptoms aren't too bad you might wait until the last couple of days of your cipro (ciprofloxacin). If severe check with your primary care doctor. ...Read more

This can help that skin to heal. This tearing could be due to the infection from yeast, or it could be your skins' reaction to some ingredients in the ant-fungal cream. ...Read more
