I'm 20, had a come/go lump at bottom throat for a while beside some pain, sometime esophageal pain/discomfort and stomach gets very irritated after spicy food? Had esophagitis 1-2 months ago?

I was prescribed two weeks of oral Terbinafine for a persistent case of ringworm. I finished taking it two weeks ago. I'm still experiencing gas that causes discomfort between stomach/liver until I belch, and mild fever. Do I need my liver checked?

I was prescribed two weeks of oral Terbinafine for a persistent case of ringworm. I finished taking it two weeks ago. I'm still experiencing gas that causes discomfort between stomach/liver until I belch, and mild fever. Do I need my liver checked?

Wrong question: In the first place "ringworm" is not a medical diagnosis. Terbinafine is very effective for dermatophyte infections. Most diagnoses of "ringworm" are by Drs who are naive about skin conditions, diagnosing fungus when it is actually not. WHAT HAPPENED to your "case of persistent ringworm"? Symptoms now are not related to terbinafine 2 weeks ago. Get diagnosed first, then check gall bladder, etc. ...Read more
