I am suffering from jock itch fungal infection. Is rx betamethasone dipropionate 0.05%w/v and zinc sulphate 0.5%w/v lotion can be use for jock itch fungal infection?

No, betamethason is a steroid. Don't apply it. Instead apply lulifin cream twice daily. Keep area clean and dry.

Antifungal medicines are used to treat fungal infections, which most commonly affect your skin, hair and nails. You can get some antifungal medicines over the counter from your pharmacy, but you may need a prescription from your doctor for other types. You're more at risk of getting one of these more serious fungal infections if you have a weakened immune system – for example, if you're taking medicines to suppress your immunity. Your antifungal medicine may cause side effects. These are usually mild and only last for a short period of time. You should consult before using any medication without right prescription.

Hello this may be due to dryness you can 1. Blink a lot 2. Wash eyes with fresh water 3. Cold compresses 4. Use lubricating eye drop like veldrop gel frequently This is a provisional diagnosis. Consult your ophthalmologist for detailed examination.
