I think my son has ringworm and now I have a small one on my face. Can you prescribe medication. We have been already using lotrimin (clotrimazole) but need stronger?
Two issues: The public HT site does not offer diagnosis and or treatment. If you can find a HT prime doc that will accept you, some of those services are possible. Read the site info. If your assumption is correct, lotrimin (clotrimazole) applied twice a day is adequate for ringworm, but may require more than a week to see any change. Treatments for ringworm will not help a skin problem caused by something else. ...Read more
Have tinea pedis on one foot. I apply Clotrimazole. Use the same sandals, even if I applied the medication and wear the same sandals does it reinfect?
Low but real risk: With sandals, there is a small but present risk of reinfection from wearing them. Because they are so open to air, the risk is much less than say, tennis shoes, where fungal spores are much more apt to thrive in the dark and moist environment. ...Read more

Of the three, lotrimin, Lamisil (terbinafine) and micatin, which is the best for treating scalp fungus?
Tinea capitis: If the fungal infection is more widespread and deeper, you may need to take oral antifungals. I have found that for tinea capitis topical antifungals usually do not help and so I usually tend to prescribe oral antifungal instead of wasting time during which time the infection will spread further. ...Read more

Rinse/air dry: The red strawberry dots are consistent with a candidal/yeast diaper rash which the treatment for with lotrimin af cream (aka 1%clotrimazole) is correct.

Barrier diaper creams can also help. ...Read more

I have these red bumps on one side of my face and they darker in the day. And at night you really can't tell. But can I use clotrimazole for it?
Rash: It is almost impossible for us here on health tap to tell what the rash is because we can't see it. Since we don't know if it is fungal, putting an anti fungal on it is not wise. Your best bet is to go to the doctor and get specific treatment for this rash. ...Read more

A couple more weeks: Athlete's foot is a fungal infection. In addition to using over the counter treatments like creams and sprays, you want to make sure you create an environment that fungus will not want to come back to. This includes keeping your feet dry and disinfecting your shoes. Also, keep in mind, fungus is everywhere. Any disruption in the skin can attract the fungus - avoid too dry skin too. ...Read more
