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

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 ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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

What would cause a round scaly itchy rash that spreads to other members of the home even after using antifungal which makes the itching worse. I've tried different product's. Muciprocion, anti fungal, my child was on keflex and then switched to septra thi

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Fungal skin infection. What creams are as good as or better than daktacort. My rashes seem to have got worse rapidly?

Med not the problem?: There are dozens of alternative antifungal preparations. However, often failure is due to problem with the medication reaching the fungus rather than which antifungal med used. You may do better with cream than ointment; you may need 3 or 4 times a day instead of twice; the problem may be something more than just a fungus.
