Common Questions and Answers about Terbinafine eczema

miconazole, tolnaftate, terbinafine, and clotrimazole. But if the fungal infection is inside the vagina, then you need to use antifungal pessaries and maybe oral antifungals as well. For these you have to consult a doctor. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
In the past i have been diagnosed with moderate to severe eczema, treated with different concentrations of hydrocortisone cream but when i moved out of my old house and into a new one the rash pretty much disappeared. the problem is once every month or so my foot still gets extremely unbearably itchy and i'll scratch just a few times but it still destroys the top layer of skin, and it wont bleed but it weeps.
I went to a General Practitioner (since i don't have insurance) and she had supposedly diagnosed the problem as ringworm by looking at it, I finished my 2 weeks of an oral Terbinafine prescription, and during the last 2 days of the Terbinafine I started to get an itchy back, 2 sections of my lower back (on the right and left hand side) started to itch, I fought it and never scratched it and woke up today for the rash to be about 5x the size they were the previous evening.
I have now seen a few dry patches that were not present before develop on his upper arm and on the side of his leg. How can one be sure that it is eczema and not ringworm or another fungus??
I have had it since Aug 2007. The dr. gave me pamphlets on hand eczema and the paper said that some eczema is associated with a fungus that also affects the soles of your feet. When I intially went to the dr my feet where already infected. The nails on my hands are also discolored and grow in what I can only describe has "ripples" and crumble off. I have been seeing this dr since January and am not happy with my progress.
I started with 3 lesions and immediately started treating with Clomitrazole. That didn't work so I switched to terbinafine cream. Also no luck so I saw my doctor who prescribed oral Diflucan. At this point it had been 9 months and I had 10 lesions. She referred me to a dermatologist who took one look and said it's nummular eczema.
I've been on burrow's solution, oral terbinafine tablets, anti-histamines and a foot cream for the eczema. It's very slowly getting better but winter is coming and I soon won't be able to open shoes for the cold. What would cause this? I never get sick and now my feet look scaly and nasty. It's slowly getting better, but I'm afraid of what will happen when I get off the medication. I'm really scared.
The spreading of the blisters on my fingers (which barely itch) prompted me to try the antifungal cream (Terbinafine Hydrochloride -- couldn't afford Lotramin). Also, this is developing relatively slowly. The only similar account I've found is this: http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/653054 Describing the bumps on the fingers and elbows, but they don't report having a full-body rash.
this physician said to use the steroids and lamisil (terbinafine). i dont know if this could help maybe he doesnt have eczema or maybe the steroids allowed an infection to set in. i will post pictures of my rash and you can see if it is similar. i am going to culture my own skin and hopefully get some answers this way.
Hello, From the symptoms it can be due to fungal infection or eczema skin. Wear cotton clothes and change them twice a day and do not share other people’s towels. Application of local antifungal cream(terbinafine, clotrimazole, econazole, ketoconazole, miconazole) and oral antifungal drugs are the mainstay of treatment. You can consult a pharmacist and get any cream or lotion containing these ingredients. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
I used econozole nitrate, clorimitazole,miconozale, fuicidin(an antiobiotic), and terbinafine. The terbinafine worked best, but it still did not clear up the problem so I began using the terbinafine pills. I have taken them for almost 4 weeks now and although the disease is better it still there. I am wondering what your advice is in this situation. Is it possible that since I have had the infection for so long that maybe I need to take the terbinafine pills for longer.
4 years ago a rash has appeared on my right back like eczema or dermatophytosis with rings. My dermatologist thinked it was eczema so I have taken diprosone cream. It didn't work and the rash has spread : face, arms, back. My dermatologist gave me Lamisil cream with oral terbinafine during 2 weeks. My rash has almost disappeared. It came back 1 month after taking terbinafine. I have done a mycological examination 1 month after taking terbinafine but it was negative.
I have also been treating the area for 3 days with Terbinafine lotion, and the area of bumps has now grown to the size of a half dollar, and the area in the middle is very red and tender. Is it ringworm? or something else? I have some pretty decent photos too.
Once UTI cleared, symptoms remained and a 2 weel oral fungal infection treatment (TERBINAFINE)was prescribed in late August. It's been a struggle determining the source and cleaning it up as it's now going on 4 months. I am on Humira and Methotrexate due to Rheumatoid Arthritis, so there is some suppression of my immune system. My question is whether the duration is consistent with a fungal skin infection or is it more likely related to the RA or other medications?
Hello, Such itchy rash can be due to fungal infection, contact dermatitis, allergic reaction, sweat dermatitis, sexually transmitted disease( accompanied by other symptoms like a discharge) or eczema. Wash daily and then dry thoroughly by pat drying, not rubbing. Also wear cotton underwear and change them twice a day and do not share other people’s towels.

Hello, It can be due to dry skin. Too much soapy water, exposure to harsh chemicals, the normal aging process and certain types of skin diseases are some of the causes of decreased amounts of protective skin oils which in turn causes dry skin. The mainstay of management is liberal use of moisturizers after washing with luke warm water. Soap should be used minimally. Moisturizers should be reapplied liberally during the day.

While they are going down with OTC creams and Natural Remedies (Apple Cider Vinegar + Tea tree oil) I ended up going on Terbinafine because it seems like these things are at a standstill. So I have a few questions: ***Skin that isn't even affected by ringworm is VERY ITCHY. Is this normal? ***I've never had a more serious case of ringworm before. Is it ok to be putting lotion on my skin now? ***Skin that wasn't affected by any lesions is peeling off. Again is this normal?
Hello, From the symptoms chances are less likely that it is eczema because rash of eczema does not spread. Fungal rash have a property of spreading to other parts of body. However to confirm the diagnosis, it is advisable to get a KOH examination of the skin scrapings done. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.
Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it fungal infection or eczema. Most cases of fungal infections respond to over-the-counter products, which contain any of several basic ingredients: miconazole, tolnaftate, terbinafine, ketaconazole and clotrimazole. You can consult a pharmacist and get any cream or lotion containing these ingredients. Some of them are Lamisil, Monistat derm, Mycelex, and Nizoral. Also wear cotton clothes and keep your skin as dry as possible.
If it is dry and flaky and itchy then nummular eczema is an important possibility. The damp skin is an ideal site for fungi to multiply. So you should wear cotton socks and change them twice a day and do not share other people’s towels. Application of local antifungal cream(terbinafine, clotrimazole, econazole, ketoconazole, miconazole) and oral antifungal drugs are the mainstay of treatment. You can consult a pharmacist and get any cream or lotion containing these ingredients.
There are various types and brands. For example; terbinafine, clotrimazole, econazole, ketoconazole, miconazole, and sulconazole. Drying is perhaps the most important point in prevention of the infection. ref:http://www.patient.co.
There are many good over-the-counter medications for fungal infections. These include clotrimazole and terbinafine. Just ask your pharmacist. As for bacteria, you can get bacitracin or neosporin without a prescription. These are less effective, but perhpas worth a try. I agree that tea tree oil probably does not have enough antimicrobial power to do the job.
Hi, Seborrhoeic eczema (also Seborrheic dermatitis or seborrhea) is a skin disorder affecting the scalp, face, and trunk causing scaly, flaky, itchy, red skin. It particularly affects the sebum-gland rich areas of skin. Side effects to inflammation may include temporary hair loss. If severe outbreaks go untreated for long periods of time, permanent hair loss may result due to damaged hair follicles. Expect two to six months before hair growth may resume.
Hi, Ringworm, an infection of the outer layer of the scalp and in the hair. It usually causes a rash made up of circular patches with raised, red edges that resemble worms. The rash spreads from these edges, often leaving the center clear, giving it a ring shape.
