Skin fungal: Infections especially in area which are naturally MOIST are VERY difficult to get rid of....Remember KEEP DRY in between applications of whatever your using topically. Take antifungal medication (if that is prescribed) for a few weeks after rash is gone! Hope this helps Dr z

Dermatologist time: Persistent chapped lips may be lip eczema, which can be treated like skin eczema, using hydrocortisone cream, plus Vaseline or Aquaphor to moisturize. Sometimes, lipsticks or lip sunscreen chemicals are causing allergic reactions on lips. Other times, a person is a primary lip-licker (it's her habit). Once cracked, lips get irritated by routine foods and juices. Dermatologist can sort things out

Address the cause: Seems the treatments you have tried are not addressing the cause. One common cause of rashes is food allergies- common allergens include dairy, gluten, eggs, soy, citrus & almonds- try avoiding for 2 weeks and add back one at a time. You might also be deficient in b vitamins, essential fatty acids or zinc. If these measures don't help consult a holistic md- see http://www. Abihm. Org/search-doctors.

Is there an at home treatment for a fungal infection causing hair loss?

Is there an at home treatment for a fungal infection causing hair loss?

Really no: Tinea capitis is very familiar. Although selenium sulfide dandruff shampoos can slow it down, it's best treated by systemic anti-fungal medicines that a physician needs to prescribe, as they are themselves toxic. There's a great medscape review: http://emedicine. Medscape. Com/article/1091351-overview.

Not antifungal: Mupirocin, keflex and septra (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) aren't antifungals, those are antibiotics, topical and systemic. Miconazole cream though is the antifungal, it's OTC, needs at least 2 weeks of application, but you ultimately want to see your doctor, it might not be ring worm to start with, also if you have a pet at home, it needs to be taken care of, wish you all wellness.

What are tha causes of fungal rash on my baby's diaper area? How would I know its a fungal rash compared to ordinary rashes

Red and itchy: Everyone has yeast that lives on the skin. But yeast particularly likes places that are damp and moist - like under a diaper. Keeping the skin cool and dry will help. You can also try an over-the-counter antifungal like Clotrimazole cream 3 times a day and see if that works. Yeast rashes are usually very red, itchy, and spread with "satellite" small red bumps away from the rash center. Good luck.

Is there a home remedy for a rash from an allergic reaction to soap?

Is there a home remedy for a rash from an allergic reaction to soap?

Yes for minor rash: If you truly have contact allergy caused by soap, the first step is to avoid the product. Overuse of soap can cause irritant dermatitis due to over-drying the skin. Fragrances and preservatives in soap can cause allergic contact dermatitis. If product avoidance and over the counter Hydrocortisone do not improve your rash, see you dermatologist.
