Topical medications (formula 3), laser therapy, surgical removal, homeopathic applications (tea tree oil). Talk to a podiatrist for what will be best and most effective for you. ...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...

Contact Social Services for locations of dental clinics. Seek treatment at a Dental School. ...Read more

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
