I use miconazole it causes my skin to be red, is this is a sign of allergy to miconazole? How to differentiate between fungal and bacterial jock itch?

Both can become pustular and/or weepy, though fungal infections are typically less inflammatory appearing than bacterial. It is best that you see a healthcare provider to diagnose and treat your properly. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

Can a bad fungal infection cause rash that hurts/tingle/crawly feeling? I thought scabies/derm says allergy. Prednisone made worse, miconazole helping.

Can a bad fungal infection cause rash that hurts/tingle/crawly feeling? I thought scabies/derm says allergy. Prednisone made worse, miconazole helping.

Not usual: Since prednisone made it worse, I suspect that your problem may be from an anxiety reaction if there is no visible rash. If there is a rash, then one needs to consider other conditions than allergy (which usually causes itching). This is not likely from a fungal infection however. Get a 2nd opinion if needed. ...Read more

Clotrimazole vs miconazole, which is better?

Similar antifungals: These medicines are quite similar, and often doctors use them interchangeably. The question as to 'what site' is involved may determine which product gets used.

Infectious disease docs know the most about fungal infections ...Read more

If one doesn't work, none of the others is likely to help. Maybe the diagnosis is wrong, or you have yeast plus something else. See doctor for professional diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
