Is using ketoconazole shampoo the same as is oral? Does it have lots of side effects? Cancer? What if I want kids one day? Any other fungus safe shamp
Shampoo is safer: Ketoconazole shampoo is much safer than taking ketoconazole by mouth. This is because, when ingested, many of your body systems and organs are exposed to the drug.

The shampoo should not affect your risk of cancer of ability to have children. ...Read more

Just found a bump on the side of my right pinky toe. I also have warts covered with duct tap. How soon before I can distill it from a fungus or wart?
Right now: If you have active warts and a new bump on the skin of the toe, chances are you have another wart. Look closely. Do skin lines go through it or around it? If the latter, it's a wart. I don't recommend duct tape. The reason it reacts with warts is the adhesive was not meant for skin contact and causes an allergic reaction. Thus can be severe in some individals. See a podiatrist. ...Read more

Operated fungus ball in left maxillary sinus. Now, postnasal discharge (~ right side) in stomach and left lung. Big spleen. Smelly urine. What could be?
See doctor: Fungal ball in the sinus is not expected to cause urinary, abdominal, or urinary symptoms. If this affects your lung, then one needs to rule out the presence of fungal ball in the lung also. With the large spleen, I suspect that you are having a systemic disease and this requires tests and examination to clarify. By the way, the odor of urine is not usually diagnostic of anything. ...Read more

But doesn't have to be, that little toe is often subjugated to trauma from shoe and all the microtrauma can cause thickening and slight discoloration.
