I am 28 years male, having sever fungal infection (ring worm) at groin area, foot, back since last 2 months. As per the consultation with skin specialist, I take itraconazole 200 BD, levocetirizine 5 mg BD, Candiderma + cream and clozol powder for 15 days. When I stop medicine, condition become more severe. Than a physician replace itraconazole 200 with Flucon 150 OD, again I repeat the medicine for 15 days. Now condition is more severe. As per the suggestion of physician, I also go through the CBC and LFT yesterday, bilirubin (total) is 1.48, rest results are normal. Seeking your kind suggestions. Thank you!
