That depends! If it is a superficial fungal infection you may see response in a few days; if you are using it on severely inflammed athletes foot it may take weeks and if you are using it on a nailbed infection it may take months. If you are not seeing the response you wish, ask your doctor what else may need to be done to treat the infection

Yes


With serous otitis, clear fluid in the middle ear space has not drained properly and pressure causes the eardrum to bulge. After drainage, fluid left can become infected. Fungal infections are unusual. If you are concerned, see you ENT ASAP. if you cannot see him/her within next 48-72 hours, see a primary care doctor. If fever/chills, nausea/vomiting, extreme ear/head/jaw pain go to Emergency Dept

possibly


Anyone can get an occasional bout of ringworm, athlete's foot, or vaginal yeast infection. Certain things like total parenteral nutrition (TPN) can predispose to blood stream fungal infections. These situations are normal. Invasive, frequent/recurrent, or difficult to treat fungal infections are very frequently a sign of a weakened immune system. If you are concerned, see a clinical immunologist.
