I was DX with jock itch week ago. Took a zpack, clindamycin, tea tree oil 2x a day. I still have a rash how long is recovery how long until Ihave sex?

Uncertain diagnosis: Well, I'm confused about why you would be given antibiotics for "jock itch" as that is a fungal skin rash. That can become infected with skin bacteria after it's been scratched at, but then you would still need an antifungal cream or oral antifungal medication to clear it up. Tea tree oil can also be irritating to that area of the body and cause allergic dermatitis. need to see MD ASAP no sex yet. ...Read more

I developed a red itchy subsequently bumpy skin rash after using tea tree oil on toenails. The rash is on the top and between toes, now shiny.

Allergic reaction: It seems you may be allergic to the tea tree oil and it may have dripped on and between the toes causing the rash and itching. Discontinue using it and topically apply a cortisone cream. You can also take oral Benadryl (diphenhydramine). If this does not resolve, see your podiatrist. ...Read more

For a natural remedy...What amts and how long use castor oil /tea tree oil for treatmt of nail fungus/athletes foot? How do they need diluted, if any

Fungus: Natural is GREAT when it works.
I have found that it is a hit and miss proposition.
You can follow the label on the bottle of tea tree oil or see your podiatrist for a diagnosis and prescription.
nail fungus is VERY hard to kill. I would treat both the nails and the athletes foot infection at the same time and get it done as quickly as possible.
Good luck. ...Read more

Rash on my inner thighs that will not travel to my penis. I have tried jock itch cream, tea tree oil soap, athlete foot spray. When scratched, area is very dry.?

You state you: Have a rash, and you state you put athletes foot creams on it. Maybe, they don't get better because a rash is not a fungus. Usually, a rash is an inflammatory condition of the skin. You might want to try an over the counter cortisone cream. If no improvement see the dermatologist. ...Read more

What's the most effective an FAST way to cure ringworm? Apple cider vinegar? Tea tree oil? Garlic?

Real antifungal: Tolaftate is available without a prescription. Terbinafine topical is also good. I'd prefer to see you use a topical agent rather than taking medication systemically whenever possible. These should be effective but it may take a few weeks. Apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, and garlic are promoted on "natural healing" sites for everything -- trying them would be your business. Best wishes. ...Read more
