Not a good treatment: "Jock itch" is not a diagnosis. There are dozens of possible causes for genital itch. Begin with a specific definition of the cause. Successful treatment flows from that. Clobetasol, as a super-potent steroid, is prone to cause ugly, annoying purple streaks and thin, wrinkled skin when used on the genital skin. Avoid use in this area for more than a few days. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: Yes skin lotions are advised as the products you use may cause dryness on the skin. It is best to use non-comedogenic lotions that hydrate the skin like cereve or cetaphil. Most dermatology offices will have good recommendations for products or even have professional products in their offices to use. Perhaps the dermatologist who prescribed your acne meds can help with a lotion. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have 3 creams which one is best for eczema? 1 Nystatin ointment 2 clotrimazole and betamethason dipropionate cream 3 aloe vesta anti fungal ointmen
Betamethasone: These medicines are for fungus; the clotrimazole/betamethasone mixture will help do to the steroid component, but it should never be applied to areas of thin skin (axillae, groin, face). The clotrimazole component is for fungus, as well as the other ointments you mentioned ...Read more

Ear infx 2+ mths. Got Ear Cx. Result is:malassezia furfur complex etiologic agent of pityriasis versicolor. on Treatment 11/2weeks. Ear still itchy?
Unlikely diagnosis: Yes, M. furfur is the causative agent of tinea versicolor, but it would be highly unusual to develop this condition resulting in an inner, middle, or external ear infection. What is more likely is incidental seborrheic dermatitis of the ear, for which M. furfur may play an additional pathogenic role. ...Read more

Scalp sores. erythromycin 2 wk,tetracycline 6 wk,pencillin 2 wk, prednisone, taromomentasone,betaderm,fucindin h,tara-clobetasol,lopux,derm can't help?
Given lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) for penile fungal infection. Used 9 days, foreskin thinning, blueness on head. Month later, skin still thinned & burning. Concerned!
Use steroid free: Lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) is a combination of both an anti-fungal and a topical steroid. The steroid is causing the thinning of the skin. And 9 days is not long enough to treat fungal skin infection. You need a topical cream like lotrimin that is just the anti-fungal cream and not containing any steroid, and then use it routinely for weeks to clear up the infection. Oral meds also available but more side effects. ...Read more
