Avatar f tn ) pain -ringworm -athletes foot -shingles (at 12 years old!) I tested negative for HIV about a month ago after possible exposures 6-9 months ago. I was so excited about the results I forgot to ask any questions like what was my cd4 count, etc. Now Im finding it hard to believe they actually ran the tests! (It was a clinic, and they hardly took me seriously.) now I have oral thrush which I think is very uncommon for people my age unless u have AIDS or cancer. I am 22.
Avatar m tn I am assuming you must have athletes foot? and that is why yoiu mention the toe? I would think you had a yeast infection on ur penis.... from your wife??? not because occationally your tool box stretches all way to your toe? (sarcasticlly) I hope that doesn't get me in trouble? but I think maybe you should see a doctor, perhaps the one your wife went to, for some yeast medication, like diflucan? and maybe get a std check while there for peace of mind?
Avatar f tn I agree with Sunny911, it sounds like a fungal infection. Could be as simple as athletes foot, or it could be an infection in your toe nail beds. There are herbal remedies for fungus which can be found online. Have you tried soaking your feet in epsom salt?
Avatar n tn It can grow on your hand. You can try an OTC athlete's foot cream, or get an Rx for diflucan if you think that's what it is. Sometimes you have to be persistent with your Dr. to get results. Sad but true.
Avatar n tn When I was about 19, I had horrible athletes foot on just one foot. It lasted for two years, never responded to treatment, then suddenly disappeared. In my 20s, I had vitiligo (white patches on back). This was treated with lamisil and resolved quickly. I have always had a predisposition for vaginal yeast infections, though after childbirth this is much better. (Avoiding coffee and sugar helps). About 10 years ago, i developed the first ringworm on my body (hip).
Avatar n tn My pediatrician prescribes Lotriman ointment(over the counter in the powder and medications area of a place like Kmart or Walmart) It can be used for jock itch or athletes foot because yeast is a type of fungus. It ususally clears it up after 2-3 uses. Go to the Pharmacy and buy Resinol it helps keep moisture out and drys up the irritation. You will spend 10.00 on all of this. and the products will last forever.
Avatar n tn Let me just say first - You're Welcome. I'm happy that my answers/suggestions/advice has been of some relief or help to you. Second, go to another Dr. Tell Him/Her that you are having a recurring yeast infection which continues to get worse. Tell that Dr. that you want your boyfriend treated as well because you feel it's possible that he is just passing the infection back to you over and over again. Tell the Dr.
Avatar m tn Also on top of the insane painful stomach aches i feel my heart racing at times for no reason i have had this rash for months and month now and it doesn't go away. I have also been depressed for no reason for a while and now ive been very anxious i have socail anxiety and this came out of nowhere as i never dealt with it. Earlier this year i would feel tired and sleepy for no reason and now it comes and goes i work out and try and push myself. Im starting to think i have candida.
Avatar n tn I also have what I thought was athletes foot but its not because it wont go away no matter what i use for it. Its a small patch on the bottom of my foot in the arch and its dry and wont go away.
Avatar n tn i used monistat (with prescription)and it takes a while to cure it,for me about 4-5 days. but i have to wear loose pants for the meantime, because if you wear tight pants, it doesnt not get better,it help. i know not much help, but i hope you feel better.sometimes it really takes time to cure it.
Avatar n tn If it is a fungus, it would respond to antifungal creams, the kind sold for athlete's foot, or for vaginal yeast infections such as Vagisil.
Avatar n tn I went to my doctor who prescribed me 100 mg of Diflucan for 7 days and gave me a prescription anti fungal cream which seems to be working on the groin skin fold problem. I applied this cream for three days to my scrotum and realized that the problem on my scrotum may not be fungal at all. Alittle back ground on myself in May of this year I did something completely out of character and had a drunken fling with someone I did not know.
Avatar m tn It's in your hands and probably in other areas like your face, nise chin, hands and feet like athletes foot but as a fungus lotrimin won't kill it. . It could have been there chilling, acting like acne for years. Also you have to change your diet man. stop eating breads, pastas, cow milk, beer, sodas, or anything that will convert to sugar. This is most definitely the devil in disguise. Also get into a sauna if you have access. Use the oil while in the sauna.
Avatar f tn She had an ear infection for 2 weeks had oral, ear and injectable antibiotics and her ear drum ruptured 3 times and then she got a fungal infection. They have painted it and tried lotrim drops which are used for athletes foot. Well it cleared up for 1 day and the dr. said stop all treatments and now it is back and she has a perforated(hole) in her eardrum. I am at my wits end. She has had an infection in her ear for 4 weeks now and she is only 3 yrs old.
Avatar n tn I have tried lots of things to try and rlieve the discomfort and heal- i have tried canisten cream, hydrocrortisone cream, anusol- the best thing so far has been athletes foot powder (strange i know) used after showers on the area like talc- seems to dry the cuts up quickly and helps healing. hope this helps.
Avatar n tn i was in the army for 4 year and right out of basic i thought i had athletes foot but ive had it for 4 years and did everything i could for it and it wont go away. 2 months ago i started to notice the web of my fingers start to itch and peel too and now my eyelids are peeling, red, and sometimes itch and its covered my whole eyelid and started to spread around my tear duct.
Avatar n tn I have been having the same problem off and on for a long time and currently for the past 2 weeks. I do not have any bumps under or on the palm but the center of my palm itches all the time. You would think that the doctors would be able to determine what this is. When it gets really bad I take Benadryl and that seems to calm it down a bit but I do not have any know allergies. I hope someone finds out soon.
Avatar n tn H-E-L-P!!! I've had this uncontrollable itch on my outer labia's for the past 7 years. Everyday I itch, I feel like a freak because I am always scratching (not in public). My labia gets sore from the scratching and I break skin often from scratching. I have tried everthing, but it doesn't go away. I know it's not an STD because I went to the doctor's and have been tested. However they haven't helped me none.
Avatar n tn Doc has also given me some Double Base cream that will act as a barrier for when I wash up and shower. I need a cure very badly for the itching - I seem to wake up in the morning vigurously scratching my inflamed hands. I hope this doesnt happen on my wedding day - the ring wont fit!!!!!!!!!!!noooooooooo! Help If you have the same problem, I DO ALREADY PUT ICE CUBES IN A TEA TOWEL AND HOLD THAT FOR A WHILE, BUT CANT ALWAYS DO THAT IF IM OUT!
Avatar n tn The taste only got worse. Saw an ENT in June who put me on Diflucan, for thrush/fungal infection. I was on it for 20 days and in about 10 days, the smell was GONE! However, he said I had a deflated sinus with infection and said he felt the rotting taste was coming from there, plus I have not been able to blow my nose, it goes backwards. I had surgery August 12, a balloon procedure to open up my sinus, had a lot of infection/pus cleaned out, and also had my septum straightened.
Avatar n tn Well, right there on the spot he said I had a horrible yeast infection and wrote me a prescription for 2 Diflucan pills. I was to take one (they stay in your system for 3 days) and then repeat 3 days later. He also gave me a prescription for a topical cream. I took the first pill, and applied the cream. The itching became 100 times worse. I kept putting on the cream until the itching became unbearable (2 days), and then I took my second Diflucan pill after three days.
288415 tn?1231634102 I rummaged around in the medicine cabinet and found some Ketoderm cream 2% that was prescribed to me 2 years ago for athlete's foot. I figured if it could stop the itch of athletes foot (which is a form of fungus) then maybe it would work on my ears. I know I shouldn't be self prescribing like this, but doctors don't seem to have the answer. I checked on the internet for possible side effects and there were none.

Avatar m tn I've been told it can be controlled with dandruff shampoo (specifically selsun blue) or athletes foot spray. Seeing a doctor soon, but it seems no one knows what it is!
Avatar n tn Try 1% clotrimazole cream (athletes foot/jock itch), over the counter. If your very red and inflamed use 1% cortisone cream, over the counter, until redness is gone, continue with clotrimazone. Prescription Lotrisone is too strong, not to be used on your face. Cut the sugar. Mae sure you're not iron-deficient. Buy good probiotics, ESPECIALLY if you'r taking or have taken antibiotics, or eat tons of FRESH, not canned, sauerkraut.
Avatar n tn Also prescribed Doxycycline(capsules). These both are for fighting bacteria. Have worked for me thus far. Itching has stoped since taking the meds.Legs and feet have subsided, with a little itching here and there. But I am also still on the meds. Hope this will help. It mite be a form of bacteria that some of you are dealing with. Rather than an alergic reaction to water as I was told by one dematologist.
Avatar f tn looking substance called keratin.They may occur anywhere on body but scalp, ears, back, face, and upper arm, are common sites for sebaceous cysts. A cutaneous horn is a conical projection above the surface of the skin that resembles a miniature horn. Cutaneous horns usually are asymptomatic.But sometimes they can become inflamed and cause pain. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis.
