Avatar n tn Okay I have a skin fungus (perhaps..not sure) that comes and goes. Generally it reappears every summer and during the winter (has been for the past two years). I went to a dermatologist about it last year and he gave me a cream and pills to take for the condition and he had told me that i have a fungus but everything he gave me did absolutely nothing. And at the time it did not itch. It just appeared scaly, flaky, slightly raised, and an orange-y color.
Avatar f tn Once the cream was applied on the affected area, it quickly restores the skin color to normal though it is still a bit red and itchy. I found that once the skin was applied cream, the inner labium has less itchy and painful sensation. However, once i didn't apply the cream, the private area and the skin turns red and got extremely itchy and painful. The O&G confirmly identified that it was becoz of the skin infection spreading to the inner labium and vagina.
Avatar n tn Tinea versicolor is caused by a fungus that lives in the skin of almost all adults. Factors that can cause the fungus to become more visible include high humidity and immune or hormone abnormalities.Treatment involves topical and oral antifungal medicines. If the symptoms persist then get it checked from a dermatologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.

Avatar n tn So about three years ago during wrestling season i first noticed this fungus on my groin. The sides of my scrotum were red and very itchy. When itched my skin would flake and fall off. It also had a funny odor to it. I tried many creams and powders but nothing seemed to work. As time passed the fungus moved to my thighs derectly next to my scrotum. But three years later it is no longer red or itchy. It is a white color and looks a little scaly.
Avatar m tn One kind is for fungus infection, and another is for inflatamation. I put on the one for fungus, and my skin got improved after 2 days. Yesterday I put both creams together, and my skin became itchy now. Is it normal? Thanks.
Avatar m tn i had jock itch for years and it has left my skin reddish and scarred on my upper thigh... are there any over the counter medicines that would help my skin heal best?
Avatar n tn It also looks cracked and the skin is peeling off. I also found a red, circular, itchy spot next to my thumb, on the same hand. I thought it was a fungus and asked my doctor again. She said lets try with Lamisil cream, which I used for 2 weeks, once a day...and nothing. It's still red and itchy. Is this something that could go away alone? Do I need to continue treatment with Lamisil? I can't take any medication as I am pregnant.
1485372 tn?1359545131 Often an oral medication needs to be taken and then the person should exercise or sweat to allow the meds to come through the pores and kill the fungus that way. As for the alcoholism affecting his skin, I have never heard of anything like it. However, all drugs can do different things to different people.
5389263 tn?1367258662 Oddly enough it could be a touch of fungus, especially if it's itchy. Lotrimin cream would fix that. If it's just dryness from allergies and/or antihistamines, try petroleum jelly on the area.
Avatar n tn Dr, I went to see my doc yesterday after keeping a problem to myself for around 2-3 years, I have had itchy armpits for that long however it comes and goes every 2 weeks lasting around 3 days at a time. They get itchy, i itch and break the skin and then i stop and they heal and then the itchyness goes for another 2 weeks.
Avatar m tn A Dermatologist diagnosed the rash as fungus and prescribed a cream. However, the itchy keeps appearing at different parts of their body. This morning I noticed clear painless and non-itchy blisters on the shaft of my penis. I have been diagnosed with HSV-2 and I know the tingling sensation during a breakout. What is the cause of the itchy blisters on my hand and on my children?
Avatar f tn Dogs chew their feet because the feet are itchy. Causes for itchy feet include allergies (ie to pollen, grass, or food), bacterial or yeast skin infections, and skin mites/parasites. The bad odor suggests that infection is present, and veterinary exam is needed to identify the type of infection so that appropriate medications can be prescribed. The bad breath may also be due to dental disease.
Avatar n tn I have what I believe is a fungus infection on my scrotum. It started like a round spot with discoloration and it was itchy. I went to get checked out for STD's and was told it was a fungus and to use Lotrimin Ultra. I used and the itching seemed to go away but the spot never really disappeared. Now it seems to have grown bigger. It's itchy. I applied apple vinegar and that area turns white. I have had this off and on for about a year.
Avatar f tn i present my feet as moccassin type where I am dry at the heels and my skin turns red burning and only itchy at the dry skin (heels) but painful when starts. I am reading fungus is a scaly raised rash. I present no itching burning a little tingling & throbbing . no scaling ,no raised areas just round circles bunched together 1/4 in. circle size red ring/ sl red Basically can fungus spread that quickly in 24 hours from one site to another on affected body? I am reading 4-10 days.
Avatar m tn Hello gentleman! So I had sex about 3 or 4 days ago (without a condom) and since I've noticed peeling on the head of my penis, under the foreskin and peeling just around the top of the foreskin. Its painless, not itchy and no blisters and no discharge. It isn't exactly red anywhere, but on the foreskin where some has peeled. Also, it doesn't hurt while passing urine or anything of the sort.
Avatar n tn I have a fungus on my skin. I have some really itchy lines or tiny little red dots in a row of 3 through 6 all over my skin. I pop them & theres this little clear liquid that squirts out. Several months ago I went to the doctor and he said it was a fungus. He gave me a cream & didnt really get rid of them. It just stopped the itching(kind of). Now they actually spread all over my skin. In my Elastic underwear area, my chest, my stomach & the other arm.
Avatar f tn (im uncircumsized), the area on foreskin wen pulled back if let go will touch certain portion on penis head where will get spotty with itchy redness as well. the itchy spots will clear up in day or so depending if I put lotrimn on it (seems to get ridofit). the red splotchyness on inside of foreskin is totally flush with skin def no bumps nor sores by any means.
Avatar f tn I then applied a homeopathic (well advertised) RX lotion, but unfortunately it seemed to spread across my face causing small circular rashes made up of little bumps which were also itchy. I then started itchy irregular shaped lesions up my forearms. I also noticed a pale purple lacy pattern on my wrists and around my knees which was much more noticeable at night.
Avatar m tn Hello, The symptoms are suggestive of dyshidrotic eczema and not a skin fungus. Wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps. For mild-moderate eczema a weak steroid may be used (e.g.
Avatar m tn The white spot on face can be due to pityriasis versicolor which caused by a fungus that lives in the skin of almost all adults. Factors that can cause the fungus to become more visible include high humidity and immune or hormone abnormalities. Treatment involves topical and oral antifungal medicines. The other possibility is of vitiligo skin.
Avatar m tn I am obvioiusly rather upset about this, as I told the doctor that I can feel the fungus is not just on the skin, but inside of my penis and thruought my digestive tract. I told her that I have itchy anus and can feel that when I eat sugary food, I simply feel yeasty. I told her that I need a pill to treat systemic candida infection, as I could feel my digestive issues are related. She prescribed me Grifluvin V 500 mg which treats SKIN FUNGAL INFECTIONS.... NOT YEAST INFECTIONS. Im pissed.
Avatar n tn Hello, It can be due to pompholyx but what is surprising is that it is affecting all family members and the condition is looking like scabies skin. The first stage is acute and presents as itchy blisters on the hands, fingers and toes. Then the chronic stage shows more peeling, cracking, or crusting. Then the skin heals up, or the blistering may start again. The exact cause is not known and excessive sweating can be one of the reasons.
Avatar n tn And you can go to a dermatologist for a skin test to see if it is a fungus. if it is a fungus it may be possible to spread it to other areas of your body.
