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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

I've been using lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra everynight for a month, why do my balls still itch?

Wrong diagnosis?: Fungal infections usually affect the groin, especialking he skini of the upper thighs, not the scrotum itself. Itching of the scrotum is more often due to excessive attention: too much washing or too much itching. The answer may be to leave your balls alone for a while. ...Read more
