Terbinafine for thrush

Common Questions and Answers about Terbinafine for thrush


Avatar n tn He prescribed terbinafine for 30 days. Fluconazole did help it just didnt get rid of it completely. I will go to another Doctor to get a second opinion on the matter. Is it normal to have oral thrush for this long? Right now I am pretty worried about HIV. As I have read several articles that state that Thrush is more common with people with diabetes, Cancer or HIV among others.
Avatar f tn I have been getting oral thrush off and on for maybe 10/15 years. I was recently diagnosed with c-diff. Is there a possibility that these two things are associated with each other ? The c-diff has already progressed to colitis. I recently started on probiotics, have been tested for HIV since thrush is associated with it.It just seems like my gastrointestinal system is out of whack.. how to I get it back to normal and healthy ? Thanks in advance.
Avatar m tn So, do you still have the thrush in the mouth? If so you may try oral terbinafine. But it may just be that you have been on antibiotics for so long that it has disrupted your normal gut flora and it might be better to take probiotics if you are not on them. I would get the type that has 10 billion bacteria of each type such as lactobacillus and bifidobacteria and others and see if that helps. It may take a while for the normal flora to change back.
Avatar f tn Oral thrush is not normal. So, have you been treated for the oral thrush? Have you ever been tested for what species you have? Are you sure it is thrush. It is solid white that bleeds when you scrape it off. I thought I had thrush and it was just a staph (which is also white). There are some strains that are very resistant to anti-fungal medication. Have been tested for HIV? Are you on any immunosuppressant drugs? Have you had your immunoglublulin level, CD4 or CD8 level done?
Avatar n tn Hello, Candida is the most common causative fungal infection of the lips and mouth..It can cause oral thrush. You can use any of the antifungal creams or lotions which contain any of several basic ingredients: miconazole, tolnaftate, terbinafine,ketaconazole and clotrimazole.You can consult a pharmacist and get any cream or lotion containing these ingredients. Some of them are Lamisil, Monistat derm, Mycelex, and Nizoral.
Avatar m tn Hi :]! well i have swollen glands from time to time and recently i have gotten a nasty white coating on my tongue I suspected thrush <- but its not painful and it appears i have some jock itch going on my groin area and yeah shoot am i okay? I have no sex history/drugs so i cant see how i would have a std but yeah any insights?
Avatar m tn It all began in janruary, I've been with my girlfriend now for 5 years both of us with clear sexual history. In janruary my girlfriend had thrush, she got it treated and we had unprotected sex like we always do. During intercourse I had intense burning sensation on my penis, I had to stop. Since then I've tried thrush creams, steriod creams, changed my washing powder, cut out soaps, and seen my GP and sexual health docs which all have been negative.
Avatar n tn i dont know if she has thrush if she did i probably would ? she does seem to have yeast infections often or high levels of yeast. she gets sores on her arms and back that she claims is from yeast. i am sure its not crabs! doesnt look like any herpes that ive seen photos of . what other info would help?
Avatar n tn Hello, Fungal infection of feet is called athlete’s foot and if your borther puts it in the mouth then it may get transmitted to his lips and mouth causing oral thrush or candida infection which is a fungal infection of mouth. He should keep his feet dry and apply zinc oxide based diaper rash ointment. Most cases of fungal infections respond to over-the-counter products, which contain any of several basic ingredients: miconazole, tolnaftate, terbinafine,ketaconazole and clotrimazole.
Avatar m tn So I tried lotirmin ultra with 1% butenafine hydrochloride for a week and a half but I didn't notice any change. So now I have limasil with 1% Terbinafine. My questions are is this the right cream for treating a penis ringworm and how long will it take until the ringworm is completely gone? Thank you for your help.
Avatar m tn she is not diabetic.she has hypotension so she tablet for it daily.so can u tell me possibilities for her patches????
Avatar m tn Thank you very much for your reply. I am currently using Dettol Soap for cleaning the area. And I am cleaning it 3-4 times a day. Since I live in Dubai is there any medication which you can suggest or the contents of the medication.
Avatar m tn I have had red itchy blotches on the head of my penis for approximately 3 years, there is also redness and itching under the foreskin. I have been to my gp many times. initially the advice was to wash it regularly not using soap. This had no effect. Then i was given a thrush cream which did nothing. After that I was prescribed a different thrush cream with a steroid in it......this did nothing. following this 2 different types of Daktacort cream one with a steroid and one without......
Avatar f tn They don't hurt or itch normally, but when I have had sex with my gf or been given oral the areas burn. I have tried hydro cortisol cream, OTC vaginal thrush treatment, zeasorb jock itch powder, athletes foot cream( terbinafine hydrochloride) and will be trying Tinactin anti fungal tomorrow. I don't see how it could be an STD since I have only been have sex with my GF of the last 7 years.
Avatar m tn I see. So they do have a mouth rinse for Oral Thrush. They can give you . If it doesn't work you can see if they can give you Terbinafine (Lamisil). I would try the oral rinse first though. That is good you tested negative for TB. As for HIV, as I mentioned the 4th gen test has both an antibody portion and an antigen portion so even if your antibodies can convert the test will pick up HIV antigen in the blood. So you should be fine.
Avatar f tn The leviquin actually cured my prostatis, I took amoxicillin for the UTI, which then went to the prostate. I'm still suffering from the male thrush. I'm currently on diflucan 150mg every 3 days 4 doses total. I take my last dose tomorrow. It's starting to look better now thankfully but I think the creams I used originally cleared the thrush but I kept applying them with a steroid cream for 3 weeks and I think that caused me problems. I'd recomend getting two creams, and mixing them and applying.
Avatar n tn Was perscribed a Canesten Due tablet and Thrush cream.This did not help.I was aslo tested for diabetes,this was negative. The next visit I was perscribed Hydrocortisone.Like the rest of the creams,it made the condition worse.This visit I was given antibiotics,this cleared up the urine infection. A week after this I saw a health advisor at my local sexual health clinic(GUM).They did the usual tests for all sexual related diseases.The results were all negative.
Avatar n tn She suggested OTC anti-fungal cream for a week. I'm 3 days into twice daily applications of Lamisil (terbinafine hydrochloride) after washing. I've definitely noticed some relief, and I know I have to give it at least a few more days - but it's driving me nutty (pardon the bad pun). The onset of the condition just seems too proximate to the initial encounter. I'm having a hard time accepting the coincidence.
3136223 tn?1367964316 Settles down with lotions and potions and flares up again. I've had it for years now. Had 2 lots of oral Thrush medication after my antibiotics, and am drinking yogurt and taking the lacto(etc) capsules. The hot weather definitely makes it worse with the sweating.
Avatar m tn burning and itching at stool. 4. Numbness in arms and legs. For eg. When sitting or standing in one position for 1-2 minutes. 5. Body ache, fatigue, weakness, malaise, feverish feeling, back pain, chest pain. 6. Allergic Rhinitis, Viral URTI, fat deposition on stomach.
Avatar m tn I was relatively health up until I was 18 when I was diagnosed with Mono and suffered severe CFS for at least a year, along with this I developed Asthma, Reflux and multiple infections including Pluracy. I also developed thrush as a result of the antibiotic use and the Asthma medications. Took Zantac for the severe reflux. Fast forward to 2006 and I started to have difficulty swallowing as well as a severe burning pain constantly under my right ribs.
Avatar n tn Thank you again for your response mkh9. Actually, this is strange. Rubbing Tolnaftate cream on the sole of the foot does help it to start hurting. But I do need to apply it around the anal area as well. If I don't, there is an internal warmth building up in my left leg. Once I do, it is gone. So I believe the fungus or whatever is growing in two areas. I completely agree with you about keeping the foot clean.
Avatar m tn I also wake with watery eyes, sinus congestion, white stuff on corners of mouth every day since exposure. I have taken multiple STD panels for every STD HIV, syphilis, goon, chylmedia, hep, and herpes at 2 weeks, 6 weeks and 3 months all neg. I even followed up with an HIV and syphilis at 4.5 months and was neg. I did receive treatment for the possible bacterial infections STD given z pack, doxy, ofoflax, uribel and something for trich. My neuro said it's probably a unknown virus.
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.
288415 tn?1231634102 He scraped out my ear, swabed it with violet stuff (similar to what they do for babies with thrush) and gave me a prescription for drops that he said was the only thing that will kill fungus all of the others only keep it from multiplying. I'll get back to you on what the prescription was. I no longer have the itch, crust, etc. now I just have to deal with the perforated ear drum and eustation tube problems.
Avatar f tn but today as i was going through some website i read and article that said to mix 1/2 cup of vinegar with 1/3 water and rub it on the scalp and leave it for 5 minutes then shampoo and rinse.. so i gave it a try.i had no choice..and for my surprise it WORKED!!!! i dont know if it works with everyone..but why not try it and figure out.. Goodluck!!
Avatar n tn I had put up with the problem for 11 months, gradually becoming worse. And now after 2 months of it having gone away, it has returned again. This time it happened much quicker, starting on the right lower eye, then moved to the left. The right under eye is very red, sore and dry. It feels so rough to touch. I have not worn make up today and have only applied vaseline and aqeous cream. I haven't changed any toileteries or make up in the last 2 months. I am not sure what it could be?
