Clotrimazole Foot Medication
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

Non?: Athletes foot means fungus on the skin of your feet. Since athletes get them more often due to perspiration. You could still get fungus even if you sit on the couch all day.

How long should I use lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra to treat between toe athletes foot to be sure it's completely gone? Been treating twice a day for a week thus far
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

My 14 month old daughter has small bumps starting at her foot and going up her left leg. I tried putting lotrimin (clotrimazole) on it, but it's not helping much.
Not Lotrimin (clotrimazole): Lotrimin (clotrimazole) is an anti-fungal and what you are describing does not sound like a fungal infection to me, so the lotrimin (clotrimazole) probably won't help, as you have noted. If it is a contact dermatitis or other allergy, or a type of eczema, then steroid cream and removal of the offending agent would be the appropriate treatment. Get some otc cort-aid and see if that helps. If not, see doc for correct diagnosis. ...Read more
Yes: But it will burn. Also please check the can to make sure about use around groin. ...Read more

My sister 38 years old suffer from pruritis in her bottom of feet always, her physician give her topical clotrimazole but the pruritis resist, why?
Pruritus: It is not clear as to the nature of your sister's problem. Her doctor probably gave her topical Clotrimazole thinking she may have had a fungal infection affecting her feet, but it would not help if she has a different problem. Itching of the feet could be due to a number of other factors, including a contact allergy, circulatory problems, or other dermatologic disorder. ...Read more

Wrong Medication: If your not responding to this combination of drugs and your doctor says you do not have Tinea, perhaps a switch to just a strong corticosteroid cream alone may be a viable alternative.
