Ankle rash: Many skin rashes can be worse on the lower extremities because of poor circulation and dry skin. See a dermatologist for an in-person diagnosis. Don't get recommendations for treatment without being examined. Yeast, bacteria, ecaema, slow vein circulation (stasis dermatitis), contact dermatitits from creams, and other causes exist for itchy lower leg and ankle rashes.

What is the correct way to apply lotrimin (clotrimazole)?

Thin layer: Lotrimin (clotrimazole) is white so apply a thin layer and rub it in until the color is gone and all you see is a sheen on the skin.

I had pain on my scortum last week I will describe it being dull and at time feels like itchin, also little bumps on my peins I used lotrimin (clotrimazole)?

Not a fungus: Lotrimin (clotrimazole) is an antifungal cream, and this is unlikely to be a fungus because fungal rashes rarely if ever involve the scrotum. Yeast rashes can involve the scrotum, but they don't typically hurt or itch. So i'd predict that lotrimin (clotrimazole) is not going to work. This could be from friction, or an allergic or irritant reaction; try 1% Hydrocortisone and see your doc if your symptoms persist.

Regarding lotrimin, Lamisil (terbinafine) and micatin, which works for treating a scalp fungus?

Oral lamisil (terbinafine): Scalp fungus requires oral medications because the fungus is in the hair follicle and topical medications will not reach into the hair shaft.

How do I apply mix of cortisone and lotrimin (clotrimazole) for vaginal rash? Combine them first, or one after the other?

How do I apply mix of cortisone and lotrimin (clotrimazole) for vaginal rash? Combine them first, or one after the other?

Either: Best: use them 30 minutes apart individually. Practical: mix them if above is not feasible. There are indeed cream combining both agents but when you mix two together, there is no way to know if the inactive ingredients don't mix well without a study. I think it would be ok either way.

My 14 month old daughter has small bumps starting at her foot and going up her left leg. I tried putting lotrimin (clotrimazole) on it, but it's not helping much.

My 14 month old daughter has small bumps starting at her foot and going up her left leg. I tried putting lotrimin (clotrimazole) on it, but it's not helping much.

Not Lotrimin (clotrimazole): Lotrimin (clotrimazole) is an anti-fungal and what you are describing does not sound like a fungal infection to me, so the lotrimin (clotrimazole) probably won't help, as you have noted. If it is a contact dermatitis or other allergy, or a type of eczema, then steroid cream and removal of the offending agent would be the appropriate treatment. Get some otc cort-aid and see if that helps. If not, see doc for correct diagnosis.

Can you use lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra and clotraminzole together?

Can you use lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra and clotraminzole together?

You could: But they are both anti fungal creams, so I'm not sure what extra benefit you would obtain.
