Fungal Hyphae Treatment
Oral fungus: Fungus can live in warm dark places. Your mouth is one of them, and this is often normal. Sometimes, for various reasons, you can get a fungal infection. On occasion, fungus can grow in association with an oral carcinoma, but a fungal infection, in and of itself, is not a sign of carcinoma. However, you should have this discussion with your doctor as to why it may have arisen.
Another infection?: If it wasn't a fungal infection or it was not properly treated, the symptoms will not go away. Have the md do a wet smear (prep) to be sure.
Epididymitis: What causes epididymitis? Infections: these include urinary tract infections, sexually transmitted infections (stis), or infections that have spread from your prostate. Medicine: certain medicines may irritate the lining of your epididymis and cause pain and swelling. Ask for more information on medicine that can cause this. Trauma: an injury to your scrotum or a catheter or other objects.See 1 more doctor answer
Tinea corporis.: My guess is tinea corporis which is a fungal infection of the skin. It causes an itchy, red, often ring-shaped rash in these warm, moist areas of your body. It is common in people who sweat a lot, as do athletes. It usually respond to topical anti fungals creams like. Clotrimazole cream applied topically
Fungal infection: Fungal infections can be treated with anti fungal creams, powders, or anti fungal tablets. In most cases scrapings need to be done to confirm the diagnosis before anti fungal tablets are prescribed.See 2 more doctor answers
The best: Fungal nail treatment is oral terbinafine if no contraindication. All the topicals have a very small efficacy rate.
See a dermatologist: First confirm the diagnosis. The most effective treatment is oral terbinafine. Now costs $10 and is about 60% effective. Usually no side effects or risks. Do not take it if you have active hepatitis. Laser costs over $1000, not covered by insurance, and works about 20% of the time. Either way, it takes a year to grow a new toenail, 6 months for a fingernail.See 1 more doctor answer
Medical: First it is the practice of medicine so go to a physician or podiatrist. Second it is a laser that requires multiple shots on each nail. Around 200 great toe then total of 300 on the rest of that foot. Results take about a year, repeat treaments may be needed and your daily shoes should be decontaminated from the fungus residing in them
Yes: This sounds like the tinea versicolor variant with little pustules around the hair bases. These can become bacterially superinfected. Focus on the fungal infection with a good anti-fungal -- a single big ketoconazole tablet followed by working up an intense sweat in the fitness center might work a minor miracle for you.
Strong: Your antifungal treatment should be strong enough for the severity of your infection. A topical medication may be enough for a very mild infection if caught early. However, it may not be enough for a more severe infection.See 3 more doctor answers
Treatment difficult: Treatment for fungus is difficult and usually requires long courses of treatment as fungi are very slow growing and thus slow to eradicate. You need to talk to doc if you have difficult to treat fungus, because the meds used are very rough on your body, and as I said, you have to use them usually a long time. There are oral meds like Griseofulvin and IV meds like amphotericin and many others.
