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

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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I have tinea pedis in my right foot that won't seem to go away. I've tried clotrimazole, undecylenic acid & a few others w/ no luck. What should I do?
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
