Tinea Cruris: Probably "jock itch" a fungal infection also known as ringworm, although it isn't cause by worms. You can treat it with Lamisil (terbinafine) twice daily for 2-4 weeks or clotrimazole cream twice daily for 4-8 weeks. Clotrimazole is cheaper, but both are affordable for OTC products. ...Read more
More info: I wish I had a little more information on what kind of itching you're having- where it's at, how long you've had it, what might be causing it. But, in general, you can try OTC hydrocortisone cream 1% to start with for your itching needs. Selenium shampoo for your scalp. If doesn't work, you need to see your doctor for further treatment. Best wishes to you. ...Read more
Maybe not yeast: This may or may not be a yeast infection. If yeasts, some are resistant to Monistat and other "azole" drugs. Hard to recommend an OTC remedy when the cause isn't known. Best to see a doctor, but you could try vaginal boric acid capsules, which are available OTC and can help some yeast infections. For sure see a doctor if boric acid doesn't help. Good luck! ...Read more
I have these bites all over my legs popping up throughout the day. They're red super itchy. Tried creams and they keep coming up. Not any type of bug ?
Hives?: It these marks subside spontaneously in less than 24 hrs , they are likely hives. Else they may be something internal. Unless you live in a tropical swamp or a house full of flea infested pets, I greatly doubt that they are bug bites. If the bumps subside in less than 24 hrs , try oral antihistamine. If not, better to consult a dermatologist or allergist. ...Read more

Dx'd with allergic reaction by leg incision 4 wk postop. Rash - red, raised, dry, itchy. Steroid cream 2x day, covered leg in brace. How long last?
Depends: Depends on what type of allergic reaction you are encountering and whether you are still exposed. To the allergen. I presume your problem is from something you came into contact with during surgery and that it is most a skin rash. If no further contact, i'd expect the rash to subside in about a week. If you want a better answer, you will need to give us a better description. ...Read more

Eczema on finger for yrs, recent mths spread, worse, and to finger next to it; very itchy, topical cortisol creams dont really help. what else to try?
Reduce stress levels: is important with eczema as it's an inflammatory condition.Tthat's priority number #1. Then make sure you aren't using non organic soaps. Harsh antibacterial soaps & cleansers will irritate already sensitive fingers. Don't use static cling-free wipes in dryer as that affects your whole body. If not bleeding, try raw, virgin coconut oil. Change ur diet off fried, processed or sugary foods &, sodas. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hello. last week i used soap to wash my vagina, which caused it to burn and this past week it has been on and itchy. I used cream and now it's swollen?
Swelling: Itching and swelling of the vagina can be seen with a yeast infection or, in your case could be a reaction to the cream you applied. If you're having associated vaginal discharge a vaginal infection is likely. If no discharge, discontinue any creams and apply warm water compresses. Avoid tight underwear or jeans. See your physician if symptoms don't improve or if there is a discharge. ...Read more
