Will elevated blood glucose av =182 keep tinea cruris hanging around?

Will elevated blood glucose av =182 keep tinea cruris hanging around?

Yes: People with diabetes have more fungal infections than people with normal blood sugar. Yeast loves warm moist sweet places. Getting your sugars below 120 will improve your chance of getting rid of your tinea cruris, as will keeping the area dry & using anti-fungal powder. Creams don't help much as they keep the area moist, and it's hard to keep the groin in sunlight without indecent exposure! ...Read more

I have dark patches or marks on my buttocks, inner thigh, groin area & legs. I had tinea cruris last year; marks not fully gone. Need medication/help.

Skin Disorder: This can be as simple as tinea but even if it is, it has come back and over the counter products are not likely going to clear it up. Best bet is to see a dermatologist or your primary care doctor. They should be able to clear this up quickly for you and if it is something more serious you will be very glad that you got to the bottom of it. ...Read more

No.: Fluocinonide is a topical corticosteroid, commonly used to treat psoriasis (and other steroid-responsive rashes such as eczema). It does not work on fungal infections, and often makes them worse. Go back to your doctor. He'll determine why the Fluocinonide is no longer working and either prescribe a replacement or send you to a dermatologist. ...Read more

I see my doct today for the rash, and he prescribes me nystatin 100, 000units, hydrocortizon cream, he says that i got definetly tinea cruris & hemorro?

Nystatin is not effe: Nystatin is not effective for tinea cruris. If you have tinea cruris you also have tinea pedis (fungus on the feet). This treatment might help if you have monilia or intertrigo or seborrheic dermatitis. If it does not cure it, try otc Clotrimazole or Miconazole or ketoconazole. You may need a dermatologist. ...Read more
