Why ringworm rash on chest still itches even when I put clotrimazole 2% on it?what's the strongest antifungal which is safe n fast?

Not ringworm: What is it??? "Ringworm" is not a medical term and is usually not fungus when applied. The solution to your problem must begin with a definition of the real problem. Since it is not a fungus, do not expect much relief from anti-fungal. See as dermatologist if you desire the best chance for cure. And throw away the useless zinc pills. ...Read more

Have a rash that looks like tiny pimples (they're spreadout) all over body only itches at first, turns into sores. Hubby and child have too. Seen 2 different doctors and 2 different diagnosis. Help!!!

It would help...: It would help to know what diagnoses the other docs gave you. Some conditions just have to "run their course." For example, chicken pox can start as tiny blister-like bumps which then become ulcers or sores. With proper cleansing and voiding scratching or rubbing, most of them heal w/out scars. Herpes can act the same way but, except in infants, usually are localized to 1 area. Need more info! ...Read more

I have been taking 50, 000 units of vitamin d and just noticed that I have a rash that looks like a blister and itches can this be do to too much d?

Way too much: There is no reputable science that supports such a high dosage of vitamin d and in fact you may be at a toxic level. 1000 iu is more than enough at any age if you can't get at least 15-30 minutes of sun exposure a day. The rash may be unrelated but stop the vitamin d immediately for at least a couple of weeks. ...Read more
