I used Lamisil (terbinafine) in my fungal infec. But doesn't effect on it. Wat other cream I should use stronger than this.?

See Your Doc: It may not be a fungal infection that you are trying to treat, if it has not gotten better with the lamasil. If it is a fungus, it may require stronger prescription meds or oral meds. It may be residual skin changes from the infection, a bacterial infection, psoriasis, lupus, other skin diseases, even syphilis, or reinfection from an untreated source. ...Read more

I have a itchy/red scrotum for along time, I don't scratch, I've tried-no soap, cerave soap, shampoo doesn't get on it, baby rash cream, anti fungal creams?

One more try: You may have seborrheic dermatitis, a diagnosis that is as tough to say as it is to write! Fortunately, it is usually easy to treat. Try some triamcinalone 0.1% ointment twice daily. It is a chronic condition and will return so only treat it when it bothers you. ...Read more

Be sure it's fungus: You should have your nails cultured by a podiatrist to confirm it is actually fungus. Other conditions can cause darkening and thickening of nails and some, like melanoma, are very serious. Also, how long was Lamisil (terbinafine) treatment? For toenails, you need to take it daily for 3 months and then wait an additional 6+ months for clear nail to replace the infected nail. ...Read more

WHAT IS THE BEST ANTI FUNGAL FOR BLACK MOLD RESPIRATORY SYMPTOMS, ARE MEVACOR and Lamisil (terbinafine) good?

Black mold myths: Most information you come across surrounding black mold are myths. Toxic black mold syndrome isn't a true medical diagnosis. Common health problems that are caused by molds are allergies and asthma. But fungus can also cause skin infections, like athletes foot or nail infections. If respiratory symptoms are your main problem, you should see your doctor for further testing first. ...Read more

I have fungal infection at my butt I already use anti fungal cream but it never heal completely and always remain some. How to cope with this problem?

Testicles sweat nd cause smell. Smell is not fishy. What should I use anti. Becterial cream or anti fungal cream:?

Not yet: If there is any irritation to the area, recommend anti-fungal cream. However, if there is no irritation, recommend increase hygiene, showers, srubbing with soap, and keeping dry, including possibility of using powder to keep area dry for few days. If you continue to have symptoms, discuss with primary care doc. Do not use anti-bacterial cream in area-increases chances of fungal growth and mrsa. ...Read more

I need to know what type of anti fungal cream to use to get rid of these puss filled pumps that have appeared on the insides of my feet?

I need to know what type of anti fungal cream to use to get rid of these puss filled pumps that have appeared on the insides of my feet?

Fungal?: If you are having pus that does not seem to be a fungal infection, at least not only a fungal infection. I would suggest you see a provider in order to get your feet checked for a possible bacterial infection and prescribe antibiotics if needed. Not taking care of feet infections can be very dangerous so I would not rely solely on an over the counter medication at this point. ...Read more

I have ringworm. Except I cannot rid my body of it. I shower frequently, use topical anti-bacterial cream, even anti-fungal cream. Nothing helps.?

See a dermatologist: Also could be something else. Not every round or circular rash is a fungal infection. Could be something non-infectious such as psoriasis or nummular eczema. A dermatologist should be able to distinguish between these possibilities and can perform a fungal scaping and/or skin biopsy if necessary to sort things out. ...Read more

What topical creams can I use for razor rash itchy skin?? I use anti fungal creams at the moment. Any suggestions?

What topical creams can I use for razor rash itchy skin?? I use anti fungal creams at the moment. Any suggestions?

Moisturizers: With or without low dose hydrocortisone will probably be more helpful than an antifungal cream, unless you actually have a fungal infection. Mixtures of Eucerin cream and hydrocortisone are usually very helpful for treatment of dry, itchy skin. Preventing the rash/irritation of the skin would be best. Try shaving well legs are damp (right after getting out of shower), and use a shaving gel/form. ...Read more

What can I use to get rid of toe fungus? It's only on my big toe. I've used vinegar and anti fungal cream from the store with little effect for weeks

See a dermatologist: First confirm that it is fungus. The pills- terbinafine- are still by far the most effective treatment. Now they are generic, a 3 month treatment costs $10. They are quite safe except not to be used if you have hepatitis. Meanwhile, keep toenails short + ventillated. Never sleep in sox. ...Read more
