I was exposed over a period of 9 months to aspergillus/penicillium. My lungs are fine but I'm worried about the possible carcinogenic effects. Thanks?
Don't worry: Those molds are ubiquitous, indoors and outdoors, we are all exposed, some people develop hypersensitivity to their spores of different degrees, hence the development of allergy symptoms, or a reaction to colonization in certain individuals, which isn't your case.

Can fungal rash on chest be treated with clotrimazole 2%?im not sure that clotrimazole 1% is strong enough.is clotrimazol2% too strong for chest skin?
Clotrimazole works: Either way I think 1 or 2% would be fine and no "risk" from the med of damaging your skin. Controlling the fungal infection is a much more important issue. Question "how" fungus arose is important since going forward u don't want this coming back. Fungus loves moisture so keeping area dry is important. It's summer now so I could imagine heat/sweat providing a breeding ground for these germs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
