Fluconazole and jock itch

Common Questions and Answers about Fluconazole and jock itch


Avatar n tn None of the over the counter jock itch medicines worked. I went to the doctor and he said it did not look like jock itch, but seemed to behave like it...it gets worse when I exercise/sweat. I took fluconazole 150 mg one pill per week. It almost went away completely...after I finished the course of treatment it has now started to come back. Should I go back on fluconazole?
Avatar f tn I am a young female and for about three months I've been fighting with a jock itch that will never go away. I've already been to a dermatologist and he's tried with every medicine available: from ointments like ketokonazole to even oral antifungals, you name them: itraconazole, fluconazole, Terbinafina, everything! I've followed his right instructions and I have even changed my diet, avoiding sugars and flour,and eating tons of garlic, and yet it always reappears after two weeks.
Avatar f tn If you think you really had an allergic reaction to the Fluconazole and forgot to tell the doctor you might want to call the office and tell them that and see if they still want you to use this since it is in the same class as the other drug. Yes the doctor is right that the fungus likes creases of the skin. So I don't know how that helps you but it is just information. Sexual partners won't always get fungal infections. So don't worry about it.
Avatar f tn I've been to my doctor to see if they can help me and the gave me fluconazole 150mg. But I notice that I have these patches on my penis one under my foreskin and the other 3 under my my shaft. I've been tested only Positive for oral herpes, everything else was negative. The patches are shiny and itchy I don't know if I should go to a different doctor or a specialist.
Avatar n tn However, steroids should not be used in the groin alone without consulting your doctor since steroids alone can make the rash of jock itch much worse. If the rash is very red and itchy, especially if it has blisters at the edge, a topical steroid such as hydrocortisone can also be applied aside from the clotrimazole cream. If this persists, it would be best to see your doctor for proper management. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar m tn I've seen a number of specialists regarding my concern, and they all advised me that either everything is absolutely normal (mostly not even really acknowledging the redness that I have on the scrotum), or that I might have something like jock itch. I seemed to have had a diet full of yeast back in December (way too much bread and toasts, and my frozen food all seemed to have had yeast in ingredients), so perhaps this attributed to my susceptibility?
Avatar n tn I also try not to use daily pantiliners or underwear made of synthetic material. When the skin is inflamed and the itch is impossible to bear I try not to scratch and I use ice involved in a towel to ease and relieve the discomfort. I hope this will help you too. Sorry about my English.
Avatar n tn Dear Meds, About six months back i contracted a persistent itch in my inner thighs, but i didn't hink much of it - later i noticed that it was a reddish -whitish fungus which was growing. After diagnosis as jock itch, A doctor suggested fluconazole 150mg tablets - once a week(if i wanted) and Candid cream(Clotrimazole). I am pretty hygienic - i shower daily/twice a day if i go out or indulge in any sport/activity that induces sweating. i also keep the area dry at all times.
Avatar f tn I am tried of taking itraconazole and applying oitment, i even wear loose cotton undergarments and change it everyday. I keep the area clean and dry. But the itch has spread on both sides of groin and butts. Round shaped with elivated edges and red in color. I started taking itraconazole again from today(almost fourth time). Please suggest something.
Avatar m tn I did recently go back to a planned parenthood and nothing was to be seen and the practitioner suggested it might be jock itch (also my urine test was negative for gonorrhea and chlamydia). So I took some Lamisil for a little over two weeks with limited success. It seemed to abate my symptoms but they would still recur.
Avatar n tn For severe fungal or yeast jock itch taking an antifungal pill like fluconazole or terbinafine may be helpfiul.In bacterial jock itch topical antibiotics may be helpful while in severe bacterial jock itch oral antibiotics are presecribed.It is best to seek the opinion of a dermatologist and get the diagnosis confirmed. Do keep me posted. Take care and regards!

Avatar f tn I am imagining that his ongoing jock itch somehow spread through intercourse and gave me jock itch and introduced it into my vagina and beyond. Husband doesn't want to go see a doctor and insists his daily sprays "work." I'm symptom free and not wanting a reinfection. Are you sure it can't be spread person to person via intercourse?

Avatar f tn I've been really itchy for the past two months inbetween where my Vagina ends and my butthole begins and i thought it might be jock itch because my boyfriend had it and i read you can catch that from them from having sex. So i was using Lotrimin and it helped a little bit for itch but not for long, i usually wear thongs but for a while i couldnt even wear one because it would make the itch worse.
Avatar m tn - the so called fungal infection jock itch type was on inner thigh around testis and scortum( not on scortum and penis head or shaft) ,as asked by doctor. After 50 days of last encounter (less likely to received from this encounter)HSV 2 IgG was 0.85 (less then 0.90 ). So does it may be due to HSV 1 genital. No lip kissing was done with them. I have a problem of chaffed and cracked lips once in a month from childhood. So please guide with this medical history.
Avatar n tn I have had 2 doctors look at it and the both say it is jock itch. Does jock itch take that long to heal? I have had soreness in my right leg accompanied by muscle spasms. The pain in my scrotum feels like someone pinching me. I have been using topicals and recently was put on fluconazole (for yeast/ fungal infections). I have seen no lesions of any sort and these symptoms have never gone away entirely. I first had irratation within a day of the sex.
Avatar n tn I have been treated with Nystatin, Ketoconazole, Clotrimazole, Clotimazole and Betamethasone Dipropionate, fluconazole and itraconazole, one at a time over many months. The red inflamed area has still not gone but is not painful anymore.. I have seen an internest, a dermatologist and an infectious disease specialist. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn They said it was jock itch at the std clinic so I tried some cream for jock itch. This made it worst so I stopped right away. I then went to my doctor and he put me on Keflex along with a steroid cream. This relieved it some but not much. He was stumped and sent me to a dermatologist. She looked and looked and said fungal issue. Sent me home with diflucon for 1 tab a week for 8 weeks. This seems to calm it but after the 8 weeks it flared up in 3 days and she had to put me back on it.
Avatar n tn i have tried the diflucan and it hasnt helped..i even tried jock itch powder and it hasnt helped..i am tempted to try acyclovir just to see what happens..any luck with you??

Avatar n tn For the past year, I have been experiencing burning and stinging in my vulva (which is NOT made worse by peeing), which comes and goes but can last for over a month and is extremely uncomfortable. The area looks normal, and there is no unusual discharge. The last time I had these symptoms was in March - they came on suddenly with a stinging sensation, and lasted for 6 weeks.
Avatar n tn I tear all the time and the itching in almost everyday out of the blue it will itch so bad and I know I can't itch cause then I just tear and then bleed and then it just hurts more. I could really use some help, I just lost my insurance so I don't want to go running to the doctor, also I just was at the doctors and found out I have HPV could this have something to do with all the itching and tearing also?? Please help me I'm going crazy here!
Avatar m tn Also treat your feet for athletes foot as well. Most of the time that is how you get jock itch. You shower and put on underwear, your feet touch them and you put fungus near your groin witch is usually hot and moist. To stop this put your socks on first before your underwear, after you dry off. The joint pain and back pain could be anything from medication your on (ie adderal in high doses can cause groin pain) to internal issues you need to see a Dr about.
Avatar m tn so after the third week of taking medicine i went to another doctor who told me to continue to take remaining tablets but gave another cream/gel called fluconazole gel 0.5% Zocon and told it was to cure it and told to buy another soap and powder but the soap and powder is to prevent it for later.it is almost again three weeks now and the red colour in scrotum is still not gone.please help me.
Avatar m tn Now, after a day or so, I got small itchy sores on the very end of my foreskin (I'm uncircumcised), I didn't think much about them and kept applying clotrimazole and miconazole creams and itch relieving powders on my lesions. Then my ringworms grew outta control so I went to a doctor to get checked out. The doctor prescribed me antibiotics, an anti bacterial cream and sedatives to help me sleep. I started taking everything except the sedative.
Avatar n tn I picked up Lamsil for jock itch and started yesterday. It says I only need to do this for one week. Don't they have an oral fungal pill that will just knock this out?
Avatar n tn she then took a look at the area and said it really looks like jock itch to her. i asked if it could be viral and she said no. she didn't bother to take a culture either. (she was young also.) i used econozale this past summer to help with the heat and she recommended i continute use of this for a couple of weeks and it should clear things up.
