What can happen if i put desonide lotion on possible ringworm?

What can happen if i put desonide lotion on possible ringworm?

Itch relief only: If you have ringworm, you need to use an antifungal like lotrimin or lamisil (terbinafine). Ringworm will be terribly itchy, have a rough surface, and it will be a red rash in the shape of a MAP with a well-demarcated edge. If you use otc steroid cream, it will only ease the redness and itching but will do nothing for the ringworm. You could use lotrimin and the desonide for a nice combination treatment! ...Read more

Is desonide 0.05% cream safe to apply on chin for eczema? How long is considered safe? Any different from lotion form? Which is better?

It is safe to use but all medicines have side effects so the least effective amount for the shortest time is best. All treatment is a balance between the good effects of treatment and the adverse effects of treatment. ...Read more

Olive Oil: Other than the over the counter dandruff shampoo that is available there are prescription strength which can work even more effectively.

What are some good treatments for dandruff?

Multiple: Dandruff is common, so common in fact that there are commercials on tv for it. Control is key here, as there may be no cure (just like there is no cure for hunger- eat and 6 hours later you'll be hungry again). I suggest people alternate dandruff shampoos, (t-gel, t-sal, head & shoulders) and let them sit on the scalp for 5 minutes prior to washing off (or if the scalp feels like it's burning.). ...Read more
