Could skin fungal infection gain resistance?

Skin Fungal Infectio. The short answer is yes, it is possible. However, most skin fungal infections are easily treatable, and actually when they don't seem to respond - it is because they were misdiagnosed. Many types of skin conditions look very similar, and often are ultimately figured out after trying several different medications. Thus, if you are in doubt, go to your dermatologist or pcp for help!

I have a bad skin fungal infection for about a month, barely started medicating correcly. How long will it clear up, and what meds most effective?

Depends. If the fungal infection is tinea - like ringworm and it has been there for a month then the best treatment would likely be topical terbinafine AND oral terbinafine for at least 14 days. If it is in the scalp then treatment takes longer. If it is more of a yeast infection - like jock itch - then fluconazole might be more effective. That would be treated for 2 - 10 days depending on severity. Read more...

Scalp infections can be difficult to treat and usually require an oral medication for several months along with topical therapy in the form of a shampoo and/or topical cream. Light therapy has also been touted to help, but results are mixed. Recalcitrant cases can suggest an immunity problem. Read more...
