Foot fungus treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Foot fungus treatment


Avatar n tn It also feels hot. Is this a toe fungus? If so, are there any over the counter treatments that are effective?
Avatar n tn I do have foot fungus that I am currently treating with an herbal remedy (seems to be working after two 1/2 weeks) after having used an Rx cream that did not work at all. These lesions are very painful and quite frankly I'm frustrated with this ongoing issue. Please help!
Avatar n tn However, not all yellow, brittle nails are actually fungus, a clear diagnosis by someone familiar with fungus is a must. If it is fungus, treatment with safe oral medication (Lamisil) is available. Even if it is fungus, fungus is not very contagious, and most of the time family members don't get it, so I usually do not advise environmental precautions. Take care. Dr.
Avatar n tn He prescribed ciclopirox which I used for 5 weeks with maybe 25-50% improvement, but it would occasionally flare and come back just as strong. Went back to the GP and he suggested maybe the fungus was almost gone and that it was more inflammation than anything. To be sure, he prescribed oral ketoconazole for 2 weeks and prescription hydrocortisone.

1551005 tn?1294088388 Sounds like fungus! I get this on my inner thighs :( It rubs against the seam of my jeans and hurts like a S.o.B. I have the best of luck with Lotrimin's. With Lotrimin's, there is a very fast initial response, but you still have to finish the course or it will come right back. However, since yours has spread as far as it has, get thee to a doctor. He or she should be able to give you something that is more effective. Take one shower a day (not 2 to 3!
Avatar m tn I’m regularly checked by oncologist, and all tests are OK. For past four years I’m feeling tired, have sore throat, pain in my foot, winds, tinnitus, and high pulse. 24 hour ECG recording showed 287 pauses and 92 sinus tachycardias. The longest pause was 4.0 sec. The longest Tachycardia episode was 2 hours 20 min. 54 sec. The average heart rate was 97 BPM. The min. HR was 24 BPM; the max. HR was 192 BPM. Cardiologist suggested three possible causes: thyroid gland, anaemia, fever.
343006 tn?1314450071 it's 75% gone, and the need to itch was gone after a couple days. I've read many times that symptoms and treatment are similiar for Atheletes Foot, in fact one usually leads to the other, because of keep your hands out of your pants!
Avatar n tn Inflammation has many possible causes, including irritation by environmental substances, physical trauma, and infection by a wide variety of pathogens, including bacteria, virus, or fungus—each of which require a particular treatment. Retract the foreskin daily and soak in warm water to clean penis and foreskin. Apply bacitracin (not Neosporin) for pediatric patients if bacterial infection is suspected. Apply topical clotrimazole for adult men with probable candidal balanitis.
Avatar m tn It works for athlete's foot which is also a fungus. This is what my doctor told me to use when I got the itches between my toes. It works.
569705 tn?1217021092 I am having sane problem on foot soles looks like foot was bruised n blood blister red n skin peeling don't no where all this stem from.... i been to 2 podiatrist n to a dermatologist. ..who told me dyshidrotic dermatitis? Help me please.....did u ever get a diagnose?
Avatar n tn No doubt I have that but now they say I have either Eczema or a Fungus. My dermatologist at the TTU medical center say Eczema and the Allergist I went to says it's a fungus. Here are some of the symptoms to my problems. First of all it can either be a clutter of little bumps or just one little bump but no matter what they itch like crazy. Second, not only do they itch but they tend to ooze out fluids that ends up as yellow crust.
Avatar n tn I had cold sores on my mouth when I was little but these are not like cold sores (if that's how HSV2 manifests) They are groups flat blotches and they look similar to the tinea pedis on the top of my foot. I do not have sex much, Friday night was the first time I had sex in 6+ mo. [this is what is making me nervous] I noticed that the man I had sex with had a bottle of ....azole on his desk.That's probably an antifungal right? Could I have caught this from sleeping in his bed?
Avatar m tn Ive noticed for probably 5 years now that some of the pubic hairs on my scrotum are discolored and look like there's a thin layer/skin of fungus or bacteria growing on them. The normal color is black and these particular hairs look like they may as well be blonde but its definetely noticable that there is a coating of something on these hairs. Its enough to feel like I can pinch my fingers together and scrape the substance off the hairs with my nails but it doesnt seem to come off easily.
Avatar n tn Ear fungus only happens when your immune system is low!!! if you have any type of cuts or sore in your ear and your dr. tells you to use vinegar and water, DO NOT!!! It will feel as if some one is stabbing you in the ear with a needle. GO TO A EAR NOSE AND THROAT DR. they willproperly treat you.... my primary care doctor is a quack, I never had fungus in my ear. Spent lots of money on emergency room visits, because of her....
Avatar n tn There is another med for toe-nail fungus called Penlac. It's like a nail polish; you put it on daily and remove it once a week. It takes months, and the med costs about $100. However, it does not involve taking a medicine internally as with Lamisil.
Avatar n tn Is it normal for skin fungus on bottom of foot to take over a year to get better? What if you've been on medication for that particular condition for a year now? [NB.] Medications were changed from time to time.
Avatar f tn I have heard that nail polish can cause nail fungus. Is this true? What are the chances of getting a nail fungus by wearing nail polish on your natural nails? Is it okay to paint over nail fungus?
Avatar f tn I have one located on the bottom of my foot, the other is on the side of my foot. Does anyone know what this actually is, how do you obtain it and also how can you get rid of it?
Avatar n tn She wants me to start to use these expensive oils on my feet and take these special vitamins to try to rid my system of the fungus growing. She told me that when the surgeon removed part of the bone, it flared-up the fungus and that is why I cannot get the swelling to go down. Please help me. I am totally lost. My ankles feel as if they can crack because they are so stiff. I gave up all of the prescription drugs except for Tylenol with Codein. I live on 1000 - 1500 mg.
Avatar m tn The picture I've included is that of my foot, and it itches like a dumb m***********. From the beginning, the area used to itch without a rash. But since then, has grown bigger, become more dry and cracked, and eventually just hurts. I thought it might be some kind of athletes foot, but no over the counter medication has seemed to work except stop the itching. Any thoughts on this kind of rash or an over the counter method to cure the issue?
Avatar n tn I have experienced itching, peeling, dryness, small blisters, callouses, and redness on my left foot but never on my right foot. I have tried all sorts of creams including ones for athletes foot but I have no idea why it doesn't go away.
Avatar m tn There is a liquid they can give you to take internally for that. And soaking feet in water with tea will kill nail fungus and athlets foot. The tannic acid kills it. Just thought I would share.
Avatar n tn (1) is this an appropriate treatment? (2) If so, how long will it take to have an effect (I can bare the itchyness no longer!). (3) should I throw shoes, socks and so forth away when the infection has gone to prevent re-occurance? (4) Do my hands have ringworm, or do I have a rash or allergic reaction to the fungus? It seems odd that both hands have it, but only one foot.
Avatar m tn Something I want to add: I'm leaning towards a fungus, also.....You might try soaking his feet in Epsom Salt solution....It is antifungal & antibacterial, plus will sooth his feet..... Because of the thin hair & dry skin you describe, along with his feet, it sounds like his immune system is running on low....You need to build it up with nutrition......
Avatar n tn Hi, Athlete's foot, or tinea pedis, is a common skin infection that is caused by a fungus. It may present with bumps on the feet; cracked, blistered, or peeling areas, often between the toes; redness and scaling on the soles of the feet; skin between the toes may have an unpleasant odor; or a rash that spreads to the instep Diagnosis is through a skin scraping evaluated under the microscope. Treatment is with antifungal medications.
