Travocort Cream Treatment
Severe jock itch. I have been using travocort cream, it seems to help. However, it comes back within a week I stop using travocort. Best treatment?
Use anti-fungal only: Travocort is a combination of both an anti-fungal and a steroid cream. The steroid can decrease inflammation but also lead to rebound irritation. So stick with a single drug treatment consisting of just an antifungal only w/o any steroid. There are plenty of these available over-the-counter w/o prescription. Just ask your pharmacist to point out some options. Failing that, go see your dermatologis. ...Read more
I have been using travocort for 2 days and there is now a white layer type skin thing on my clitoris. Is this due to the cream?
Overgrowth possible: The cream could leave a layer of material on the area but am not sure what you are using this on the clitoris for as that is not good for any period of time. Also this can also leave an overgrowth of yeast in that area especially under the hood and should clean gently with light vinegar solution and if persists should be checked by your doctor. Hope this helped some. ...Read more
