Avatar n tn I was told it was a fungus and the the only treatment would be to take Nizoral once and take another dose after a week. I have tried to look up this fungus on the internet and have had no luck. There is no other signs anywhere on his body. Please let me know if this is the only way to clear this problem and also is it contagous.
Avatar n tn Both ringworm and yeast infection are fungus. in fact one of the very best treatments for ringworm is monostat mixed with hibiclense I am not a medical pro, but I did rescue 3 infested kittens 4 years ago and my hairless dogs got ringworm. from that i learned the ringworm spores can live many months. I bought a woods lamp, only to discover all ringworms do not florese. dry skin does florese. grr a waste of good money.
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 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.
1380209 tn?1279113932 Hi. I have noticed a skin rash or fungus that seems to have recently gotten worse. I have never gone to the doctor to get it checked out since it almost never itched and has never caused me pain or any side affects. Really whats bothering me now is how it looks and why it seems to be spreading. I kinda just wanted some opinions from the community before i go get it checked out. I was kinda hoping maybe it was something i could cure with over the counter meds and not have to go see a doctor.
Avatar n tn It might be a skin fungus (tinea versicolor) that you have already successfully treated, only it takes several months for the white color to even out. If that's the case, you'll just have to wait, because there's no special treatment to speed the process. To tell if it is the case, you will need to see a skin doctor in person. At that visit you can discuss ways to treat any recurrence right away, so you won't have to deal with long-term white spots. But they aren't permanent. Take care.
Avatar n tn When I looked at the area today, I noticed its discoloured and there's brown blotches on my skin. I was wondering what was happening with my skin and what I can do? Are these discoloured patches permenant now? And how can I make the itching stop? Hope to hear from you soon, thank you very much...
993227 tn?1249436683 Every summer he develops skin irritations that my vet swears is fungus. My horse is very uncomfortable, tender, and itchy. We have tried EVERY treatment possible from shampoos to natural supplements. Recently I learned from my horse's previous owner that he has allergies to flys. Could that be the cause? What do i do??
Avatar n tn You may wash the area with Selsun Blue ( selenium sulfide) twice a week and see if the involved areas improve. If the skin turns red or itchy and painful, stop the application of shampoo and have this assessed by a dermatologist.
Avatar m tn I really think its some sort of fungus cause when I scratch it seems to be a layer of something and it looks like when you scratch your skin and examine your finger looks like dead skin. I just want to resolve this problem.
Avatar n tn Hello, Such itchy blisters on foot can be due to pompholyx or fungal infections. Wash your feet daily and then dry thoroughly by pat drying, not rubbing. Keep the area dry and keep a separate towel for yourself. Most forms of fungal infections respond to over-the-counter products, which contain any of several basic ingredients: miconazole, tolnaftate, terbinafine, and clotrimazole. You can consult a pharmacist and get any cream or lotion containing these ingredients.
Avatar n tn The inflamation cleared up but and the skin was left shiny and tan in color. However, within a week the condition returned and a 2nd three-week treatment failed. A skin fungus was now suspected and a biopsy performed. The pathology report noted: Multiple tissue levels are examined. There is superficial epidermal erosion with assoc. acute inflammatory inflitrated. The epidermis adjacent to this region shows mild to moderate acanthosis, slight spongiosis and inflamed serum crust.
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 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 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 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 spelling), it is just really DRY and the skin is really irritated. it kind of like splits becasue it is so dry. its fungus you think?
