The source of an infection needs to be removed, potentially by way of hysterectomy. ...Read more

I have a fairly bad infection in my upper left gum line, what would be the best over the counter treatment I could get? I don't have insurance...

HI, i have a candida infection under my armpit that was unresponsive to cortisone treatment. What can I get over the counter now that I am on holiday?

Fungal cream.: Cortisone does not treat fungal infections, and, in fact,can make them much worse. If you use an over the counter fungal med (Like lotrimin (clotrimazole) or nystatin) and the rash does not get better, see a doc for evaluation. Also avoid fragrances and harsh soaps which cause skin irritation and will add to your problem. Avoid animal products with antibiotics used in their feed, as well. ...Read more

I have a candida infection under armpit that is unresponsive to cortisone treatment. What can I get over the counter whilst I am here on holiday in Spain? Do I wash it in the shower or try to keep it dry? I sweat quite a lot now that I am on Concerta dail

Intertrigo: Yeast is not likely. Cortisone is not good for yeast, sometimes makes worse. Most likely it is chaffing and tight clothing in hot weather + travel. Shower very beneficial. Not too hot, no scrubbing. Antiperspirant, even if it stings, may help. Hydrocortisone added if severe itch. Do not shave under arms. If persists, a good dermatologist will help you. ...Read more

On keflex have developed a yeast infection down there given meds for that by can't take yet. Can I do over the counter cream treatments for now???

No need to wait: Why can't you take the yeast treatment yet? You don't need to finish your cephalexin (Keflex) first. If in doubt, check with the doctor's office where it was prescribed. But if you want to start OTC yeast treatment, that would also be OK. Choose any product with active ingredient ending in "azole" (miconazole, clotrimazole, etc). ...Read more
