Other diagnosis?: With proper treatment, fungal infection will not linger for 3.5yrs. If it is indeed fungal, does it clear and return?

Treated a fungal infection around back passage inner thigh scrotum and penis area, everything cleared but scrotum still red do I keep applying cream ?

Yes: You have a fungal infection, sometimes called "Jock Itch". Use an antifungal cream or powder that contains terbinafine, miconazole, or clotrimazole. You can buy these products without a prescription. Brand names include Lamisil, Lotrimin, Micatin. Follow the directions on the package, and don't stop using the medicine just because your symptoms go away and continue until redness is gone. ...Read more

My wife has fungal infection in her leg nails left and right finger nail and she is pregnant for one month, can she take Lamisil (terbinafine) tablets as treatment?

My wife has fungal infection in her leg nails left and right finger nail and she is pregnant for one month, can she take Lamisil (terbinafine) tablets as treatment?

I advise against it.: All medications may causer side effects. No one knows, for example, whether this drug might increase th risk of autism. The federal system for labeling drugs dangerous in pregnancy is poorl. They up the danger level once teratogenic effects become known. Paint the toenail surface qid with decolorized tincture of iodine--a highly potent fungicide. They will grow out normal. ...Read more

Can inner ear fungal infections be harmful to your body? My inner ears have been itchy for a long time now and I don't know what's causing it

The most common cause of dry ears causing itchiness is the over use of Q-tips to clean your ears of wax. Wax in the ear canal is important and healthy and will migrate out on its own. ...Read more
