Lamisil/Hydrocortiso: Use Lamisil (terbinafine) and apply to infected and normal skin 2 cm beyond affected area
each day for a period of one month. The first week pair this with Hydrocortisone 1% daily. If this fails to resolve the problem then best to be seen to consider other causes. You may need an oral antifungal if the topical regimen fails and the lesion is determined to truly be ringworm. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Can you use clotrimazole cream on your back for your acne?

Can you use clotrimazole cream on your back for your acne?

Won't work: It's an antifungal. If your "acne" is really pityrosporum infection / tinea / folliculutis, it will work wonders. If it's real acne, get with your personal physician. Acne on the trunk usually requires systemic rx -- a real antibiotic or isotretinoin. The latter isn't for the faint-hearted but may be what you need to get clear. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have psoriasis since my teenage I am using clobetasol ointment, dermovate ointment today the pharmacist give me clotrimazole cream usp1%w/w. is that same??

Moisturizer: I am a strong advocate on using non-scented soap and moisturizer after (preferably daily) bathing. Have you tried these? As for the cream, the former two are cortisone the clotrimazole is for fungal infection- they are totally different. See a dermatologist if the above measures did not work for you. ...Read more

Can topical clotrimazole cream be used vaginally as well? Only difference between the 2 seems to be the inactive ingredients.

Can topical clotrimazole cream be used vaginally as well? Only difference between the 2 seems to be the inactive ingredients.

Maybe OK, but why?: The skin (non-vaginal) cream might work, but can't be guarantteed; I'm sure the manufacturer never studied it for vaginal yeast. And you'd need to use nearly an entire tube of skin cream for just 1-2 treatments. Clotrimazole vaginal cream is designed to be effective and generic versions often are cheap. Or consider a single oral dose of fluconazole (Diflucan®), which is just as effective. ...Read more
