Fungal Infection (Definition)

Fungal infections are clinical conditions in which a person has an infection due to a pathogen called a fungus (in contrast to infections caused by bacteria, viruses, or parasites). Fungal infections occur commonly on the skin (including Jock Itch and Athlete's Foot) and can also cause more serious infections in those ...Read more

I have fungal infection on my groun, and my scrotum itches, I've also had white bums on scrotum that itch, my scrotum tingles, could this be herpes?

I have fungal infection on my groun, and my scrotum itches, I've also had white bums on scrotum that itch, my scrotum tingles, could this be herpes?

Not herpes.: What you are describing doesn't sound like herpes. Herpes typically presents as a cluster of blisters that develop at the same time. The skin is typically itchy or painful before the blisters develop, then the blisters come. The fungal infection in your groin and scrotum may require a stronger antifungal. The Betamethasone combination you are using may spread the fungus and make it worse. ...Read more

Intertrigo or Tinea: Where exactly is your rash, between your inner thighs/groin folds area? You can have a yeast (intertrigo) or fungal (tinea) infection. When the skin heals up, it usually results in a darker discoloration. Try a combination of Hydrocortisone over the counter (cortaid) and antifungal cream (clotrimazole, tinactin, (tolnaftate) lamisil) 2x/day for 2 weeks or so. Keep the area clean (gentle cleansing) and dry. ...Read more

Have been treating entire body for fungal infection with coconut oil rash gone skin dry and flaky now still itches really bad possible Id reaction? Symmetrical rash started on torso spread to arms and legs has reached ankles still extremely itchy on breas

Sounds fungal: Would need more background information as there are several potential causes for rash such as this. However, ruling out fungal infection is at top of list. Coconut oil has good antimicrobial properties and may have helped calm an inflammatory reaction to the infection, but does not seem to have completed the task. Would see a physician to confirm and take antifungal medication. ...Read more

Does fungal infection in body show effect in eye something like itching , burning frequently?

Does fungal infection in body show effect in eye something like itching , burning frequently?

Probably not: Systemic fungal infections can affect the eyes, but not usually in the way you describe. The fungus can get into the eye through the bloodstream and cause a serious condition called endophthalmitis. You can get a fungal infection of the cornea, but it would be unlikely to come from a systemic infection. What you describe sounds more like dry eye/allergy. I would see an ophthalmologist to be sure. ...Read more
