Monistat Makes Itch Worse
Yes: Hydrocortisone stunts your skins immune response that causes the redness. For this reason the hc might make the jock itch look improved at first. But the condition is caused by a fungus; so if you impair your skin's immunity, the fungus will grow more rapidly, eventually making the rash worse. When in doubt, mix the hc cream with an anti fungal cream, but not for more than 2 weeks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
YI w/o itch? Finished antibiotics.vaginal discomfort, irritated and swollen, no itch. Getting gradually worse over a few days. YI or something else?
Still probably yeast: The timing with antibiotics and your symptoms still suggest yeast infection, which doesn't necessarily itch. If there are open sores or you might azve been exposed to herpes, that might be a possibility; or allergy to something (vaginal cream, spermicide, latex condom, etc).

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

Itchy skin all over body, worse at night, rash isn't that noticeable but itches like crazy & sometimes burns. What could it be?
Many possibilities: When the body itches all over, it implies that the itching/rash may be a reaction from an ingestion such as a medication or food, or an allergy to the environment, ie hayfever. Another possibility could be a skin infestation such as scabies. Reactions to things like fabrics or laundry detergent will usually spare certain parts of the body such as the head/scalp, hands and feet. ...Read more
