Rash dx and rx: You had a rash. What was the cause and the appropriate treatment? Eczema is usually treated with moisturizers and topical steroids.

Toe candida albicans. Is tolnaftate effective?

Toe candida albicans.  Is tolnaftate effective?

The organism: Is not the only consideration. You did not mention if it was skin on toe or the nail. Nials are difficult to treat due to the fact the organisms are ususally under the nail.

What really makes ringworm go away? I've tried everything, clotrimazole, tolnaftate, miconazole nitrate creams & terbinafine HCl pills & its still here

Lamisil/Hydrocortiso: Use Lamisil (terbinafine) and apply to infected and normal skin 2 cm beyond affected area each day for a period of one month. The first week pair this with Hydrocortisone 1% daily. If this fails to resolve the problem then best to be seen to consider other causes. You may need an oral antifungal if the topical regimen fails and the lesion is determined to truly be ringworm. Hope this helps. ...Read more

19 mo old w/ yeast infection for 2 wks. Tried nystatin, monistat, clotrimazole, zinc oxide, triple paste, maloxx, & no diaper. Not working, its worse.

19 mo old w/ yeast infection for 2 wks. Tried nystatin, monistat, clotrimazole, zinc oxide, triple paste, maloxx, & no diaper. Not working, its worse.

"diaper rash": A number of conditions cause so called "diaper rash." i wonder about the duration of treatment rendered since 6 different creams, independently or in combination, have been used in 2 weeks period. If no response to Nystatin was observed in a week, the child is unlikely to have yeast infection unless immunocompromised. Seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, and zinc deficiency are other possibilities. ...Read more

Took keflex 4 uti. It gave me a yeast infection that made my vagina swell. I took overthecounter azoles. Xtreme itching and bumps r still here. Help?

See answer: Agree that a fungal yeast infection (candidiasis) would be most common type of vaginitis after antibiotic therapy. The fact that your symptoms have not cleared though warrants an exam to verify the diagnosis and rule out other possibilities. It is also possible that you have an -azole resistant or atypical fungus and culture could identify. A trial of oral Fluconazole might be considered anyway. ...Read more
