What cream do I use to treat skin fungal on my shoulders?

What cream do I use to treat skin fungal on my shoulders?

SEVERAL OTC: First, are you sure it's 'ring worm' (fungal infection)?
Tinea corporis (skin fungus) is a superficial dermatophyte infection. Several over-the-counter creams are helpful but Lamisil (terbinafine) (or generic) tends to work the best due to it's cidal (fungal killing) action. A low potency steroid (hydrocortisone 1% or cortaid) can be added if there is moderate redness (inflammation) hope you are better soon. ...Read more

What topical creams can I use for razor rash itchy skin?? I use anti fungal creams at the moment. Any suggestions?

Moisturizers: With or without low dose hydrocortisone will probably be more helpful than an antifungal cream, unless you actually have a fungal infection. Mixtures of Eucerin cream and hydrocortisone are usually very helpful for treatment of dry, itchy skin. Preventing the rash/irritation of the skin would be best. Try shaving well legs are damp (right after getting out of shower), and use a shaving gel/form. ...Read more

Saw a PA, was told what I have on neck is fungal. Have had it for a little over a week. Prescribed cream two days ago. How long can this last on skin?

More than 2 days: Depending on the kind of fungus, it can take up to weeks to treat. To be honest, at least 20% of skin outbreaks that I treat as fungal are probably allergic or contact dermatitis...its not a precise science unless based on biopsy. ...Read more

Rash or Fungus: In the groin area not responding to anti-fungal. Please continue to see your doc. Additionally, have you changed your laundry detergent? Are you sensitive to a certain food?

How do I tell if the skin on top of my big toe is dry or fungal? I've been applying moisturizing cream for a few months and there has been no change.

Skin: Your podiatrist or dermatologist can scrape a skin sample and send it to the laboratory for examination and report. That report may reveal whether there is fungus in the tissue or not. If there is no fungus problem then a skin punch biopsy could reveal a condition such as psoriasis eczema or contact dermatitis, to suggest a few possibilities. ...Read more

I was told by a dermatologist I had TV, she prescribed an anti fungal cream, I have been using it and my skin is peeling. Does that mean its healing?

I was told by a dermatologist I had TV, she prescribed an anti fungal cream, I have been using it and my skin is peeling. Does that mean its healing?

Observation: I presume "TV" refers to Tinea Versicolor which is a fungal infection of the skin. You are using an "anti fungal cream". Peeling skin as the infection heals can occur however it is self-limited and should resolve after treatment. See your doctor if peeling is continuing a month after treatment is done or if there are signs that the infection has not fully responded. ...Read more

I have flakey bumpy red itchy skin on eyelids for the last 3 years. Went to dr. He did not know what it was. Gave me fungal cream not helping. Help?

Eyelids sensitive: Eyelid skin is very delicate so it reacts easily to chemicals in the air or surface contact. Your eyelids could be irritated by or allergic to products used around your eyes, on your face or scalp, or things you handle. Seborrheic dermatitis can also cause scaly, red eyelids. You could try a brief course of hydrocortisone, used sparingly or be evaluated by a derm. Nail polish/epoxy have caused. ...Read more

Fungal skin infection. What creams are as good as or better than daktacort. My rashes seem to have got worse rapidly?

Fungal skin infection. What creams are as good as or better than daktacort. My rashes seem to have got worse rapidly?

Med not the problem?: There are dozens of alternative antifungal preparations. However, often failure is due to problem with the medication reaching the fungus rather than which antifungal med used. You may do better with cream than ointment; you may need 3 or 4 times a day instead of twice; the problem may be something more than just a fungus. If initial therapy fails, best to ask pharmacist or doctor for recommend. ...Read more

Skin infection: Fungal infections can cause pustules and boils on the skin, but more often it is a bacterial infection which needs antibiotics. Antifungal creams would not help.

I hv fungal infection. I was using anti fungal cream. But it has been not removed frm my skin. N affected area has becum black spotted. Its burn a lot?

Different med: Depending on what type of medication you used it is the response you get. Like antibiotics for bacteria not all antifungals cover all fungus. It is probably a good idea to get prescribed another type of antifungal medication and check if it works. Another possibility is that it might not be fungal but other type of condition. F/u with a Dermatologist on this if not better. ...Read more

You: You may be dealing with an allergy/contact dermatitis. Consider any new lotions, soaps, or products you are using in your private area. Also a new laundry detergent could be to blame.
