I have a tinea infection in both groin & underarms area & One in front of chest nipple (around) for around 2-3 months.What medications should I take?

Fungal infection: First, I would want to know with certainty if you truly have a fungal infection - has a doc evaluated you for this? Did they do fungal scrapings/analysis? If that is true, then any of several anti fungal medications could be prescribed that would help-like clotrimazole . The key also, would be to look at what CAUSED this in the first place...usually MOISTURE, uncontrolled sugars (diabetes), etc. ...Read more

Anatomy: Without an exam this is going to be a difficult question to answer. Your description leaves open numerous possibilities. It surely sounds a bit abnormal and thus my feeling that you need an examination in real life with your physician.

Dull pain, only left side of chest, at nipple. Ongoing 12 hrs. Every 30 secs, deep dull pain rises, tightening, then subsides with a "gurgle" feeling?

However, even a young man can develop a blood clot in the lung or (rarely) heart disease. Pain every 30 seconds for 12 hours should cause you to go to the ER for an evaluation, just to make sure it isn't dangerous. ...Read more

Pain on deep : Breaths is called pleurisy. Broad differential, but as a sign, not very specific. You need a chest x-ray, and if it does not show free air (pneumothorax) a prospect, might need more expensive work up. See a good generalist or lung doctor. Cancer is not high on my list, even if you smoke, if 37 is your age. ...Read more
