Terbinafine for tinea corporis

Common Questions and Answers about Terbinafine for tinea corporis

lamisil

My son is a competitive wrestler and picked up tinea corporis and tinea capitis about five weeks ago. Lamisil reduced, but couldn't completely clear the tinea corporis, so his pediatrician prescribed econzole nitrate cream which has pretty much killed it. However, the tinea capitis which started at his scalp line has migrated into his hair. Our pediatrician didn't feel comfortable prescribing oral medication, so we went to a dermatologist who gave him Griseofulvin.

Hi, The description of the rash is suggestive of Tinea or Ringworm. Tinea corporis is a superficial fungal infection (dermatophytosis) which may occur on any part of the body. The rash produced by this infection is most easily identifiable as enlarging raised red rings with a central area of healing (ringworm). The affected areas may be associated with flaking, rippling, peeling, or cracking skin. This infection responds well to topical (applied on the skin) treatment.

Hi, The rash is probably due to Tinea cruris, a fungal infection of the skin.Tinea corporis is a superficial fungal infection (dermatophytosis). It causes itchy red patches.It is commonly seen in skin folds because fungi prefer warm, moist environments. In general ringworm responds well to topical treatment. Topical antifungals are applied to the lesion twice a day for at least 3 weeks.
Commonly referred to by the location of the infection, tinea unguum (nails), tinea pedis (athlete's foot), tinea cruris (jock itch), tinea corporis (body) and tinea capitis (scalp and hair). In wrestlers, Tinea corporis is know as tinea gladiatorum commonly known as "ring worm". The fungus causes a characteristic lesion which is often clear in the center with a rough, scaly, circular border. The lesions vary in size from very small circular patches to large patches.

Hello, These ring like itchy rashes can be due to tinea corporis. Wash the area daily and then dry thoroughly by pat drying, not rubbing. The damp skin is an ideal site for fungi to multiply. Also 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. Regarding the dark area in the groins, it is due to continuous sweating of the area due to obesity.
To me it sounds like tinea corporis. Wash your groin daily and then dry thoroughly by pat drying, not rubbing. A hairdryer is useful if you have hairy groins. The damp groin is an ideal site for fungi to multiply. Also wear cotton underwear 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.
(seriously, skin specialists in bathinda are very poor at knowledge). And i identified my ring worm as tinea corporis(on inner thighs, few patch on both legs, a spot on butt and a spot on back of shoulder) and tinea cruris(just a tiny spot on penis). i find out miconazole lotion + terbinafine tablets as a solution, and after 14 days my problem was reduced to only 2 patches in inner thighs. Tinea cruris( a tiny spot on penis) was totally cured.
