Over The Counter Treatment For Jock Itch
Can econazole cream for jock itch be used in combination with over-the-counter lotrimen jock itch spray or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) sprays to suppress itching?
Probably: Usually we don't want to use two different antifungal agents at the same time but there is probably no harm in doing so. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) spray is ok but there are other otc stuff such as tricalm, itch x that may be more effective. I would suggest that you space the application 30-minute or more apart and see your doctor if the problem persists. ...Read more

Tick: Generally the rash from lyme (erythema migrans) does not itch and is not raised. What could cause a bump and itch is if part of the tick was left in and is causing an inflammatory reaction or your body is mounting a local allergic reaction to the body part. I would check to make sure some to the tick was not left behind. Should also have blood work for lyme anyway. ...Read more
