Is naftin (naftifine) cream effective against nail fungus?

No: Most topicals do not work well on nail fungus. There are a few that are specifically for nail fungus, but even these don't work as often as anyone would like. If you try a topical, it is important to use as often as suggested and keep the nail trimmed as short and thin as possible to give the medicine a chance to work. It may take the nail 6 months to grow out. Dr l. ...Read more

What would cause a round scaly itchy rash that spreads to other members of the home even after using antifungal which makes the itching worse. I've tried different product's. Muciprocion, anti fungal, my child was on keflex and then switched to septra thi

Not antifungal: Mupirocin, keflex and septra (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) aren't antifungals, those are antibiotics, topical and systemic. Miconazole cream though is the antifungal, it's OTC, needs at least 2 weeks of application, but you ultimately want to see your doctor, it might not be ring worm to start with, also if you have a pet at home, it needs to be taken care of, wish you all wellness. ...Read more

Rash under breasts: Please see a dermatologist. There are other rashes that look like a fungal infection. Inverse psoriasis is found in the armpits, groin, under the breasts and in other skin folds on the body.It is particularly subject to irritation from rubbing and sweating because of its location in skin folds and tender areas. Please see a dermatologist. I'd be willing to bet it's inverse psoriasis. ...Read more

I still have red rash on testicles 4 wk I saw a doctor and was told it is a fungal infection. Doctor proscribed nystatin it helped a little. Advice?

Try other treatment: The most common red rash involving scrotum, groin, etc. is tinea cruris (jock itch), caused by a type of fungus that does not respond to nystatin. Discuss w/ your doctor. Or try an OTC jock itch cream, on the same pharmacy shelves as athletes foot products; look for active ingredient terbenafine or clotrimazole. There are other possible causes; see a dermatologist if OTC treatment doesn't work. ...Read more
