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

After infection clea: After the infection for which the Miconazole has been prescribed has cleared would make sense. Your physician who prescribed the medication and can evaluate you would be the best guide to answer the question. ...Read more
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. I have faith that either one would work fine for minor fungal infections. If these over the counter products don't help, then it's time to take it to the next level -call a doc. Infectious disease docs know the most about fungal infections ...Read more
Anytime you want: You can have "sex" any time you want, but if you're referring to vaginal sex, it's best to wait until the full treatment is completed to insure a cure of the fungal infection and that you don't transmit it to your partner. Your partner should also be treated to make sure you don't "ping-pong" the infection back and forth. ...Read more

Oral Antifungals: Scalp fungus (tinea capitis) responds poorly to topical antifungal medications. This is because the root of the hair is infected and the topical medication does not penetrate deeply enough to make a difference. Oral antifungals are what is required to treat this type of fungus. These include griseofulvuin, terbinafine, itraconazole, Fluconazole and ketoconazole among others. ...Read more

Probably won't work: All the "azole" drugs (miconazole, tioconazole, terconazole, clotrimazole, fluconazole and others) have the same activity against candida and vaginal yeast infections, and some yeasts are resistant to all azoles. 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
