If you continue using betamil gm, you will have serious and permanent damage to the skin. You may be suffering from tinea cruris which is fungal infection of the inner thighs and buttocks area. It can be treated by taking four to six weeks of anti fungal treatment which includes tablets along with creams. Do not use soap over that area. Mistreatment with over the counter Steroid containing creams like betamil gm, panderm, quadriderm, hh zole, candid b etc lead to repeated case of recurrence and also side effects due to application. Do not use steroid containing combination creams. Please call me or contact me using online consult option with photos for detailed prescription. Do not delay treatment as it may spread further on your body and also to other people living in the household.

I probably have fungal infection in my right limb. And I have been on medication and have been taking itraconazole 200 mg for 20 days, 1 Tab. Daily and today is the 21st day. Also I took Levocet (Hetro) 5 mg each night for 18 days and have stopped taking that. But itching has not ended completely and there are rashes on limited portion of my limb, exactly to mention below my knee. Now what should I do?

Use DK gel at night. Fungal infection or ring worm. Common in the skin folds. Sweaty areas. Seen as itchy, red or black spots mostly circular shape. Avoid sweating, exchange of clothes and soap. Treatment depends on the severity and location of the fungal infection. So do direct online consultation by sending photos or meet me in my clinic for proper diagnosis and treatment.

I am 21 years old male and I am suffering from jock itch and also there are several dark patches randomly appearing in my body recently. I do not know if that is also fungal infection or not. I am on terbinafine 250 mg and Fexofenadine 180 mg daily. Also using ketoconazole 2% cream in groin area. I am on these medications for almost 15 days yet I didn't see any major improvement. Can you please when I will see improvement and also if luliconazole 1% can be used instead of ketoconazole to get better results.

HI lybrate-user. It is not possible to cure fungus in one prescription. To cure it permanently you will need to give homoeopathic medicine for at least 3 months. Better consult for proper treatment. You may start with Bacillinum 200 one dose.

How Homeopathy Helps Treat Ringworm?

How Homeopathy Helps Treat Ringworm?

Ringworm is a type of fungal infection occurring on the skin of a person. Ringworm does not involve the presence of any kind of actual worms whatsoever. It is so named because of the circular scaly infection on the skin, which almost appears as if a worm is present beneath the skin.

Why the fungi arise on the skin is unclear. However, these skin infections are highly contagious, so people coming in contact with those already having the disease could naturally develop the ringworm lesions. The fungi also require warm and moist conditions to thrive in. People working in waterlogged conditions or those walking barefoot on wet floors near swimming pools; public washrooms etc could all develop ringworm based on their immunity levels.

Symptoms of Ringworm:

  1. Reddish, scaly or white patches on the skin.
  2. The lesions may appear raised and blistered.
  3. The circular lesion might have a clearing in the center.

Hair loss is a common side effect of this disease. Ringworm of scalp especially is characterized by patchy hair loss where the hair might be bent and broken at an odd angle. Dandruff might also be present. Thankfully, there are many effective homeopathic remedies for ringworm on scalp.

Though mostly ringworm is treated with conventional medicines and allopathic treatment, there are certain recurring ringworms on which traditional medicines slowly lose effect. Such infections can be controlled and cured with the help of homeopathic medicines.

Homeopathic Treatment for Ringworm

Homeopathy offers an excellent treatment of Ringworm infection. The natural Homeopathic medicines help in providing relief from the acute symptoms of itching and burning of Ringworm lesions and also eradicating the disease in its entirety. The results are gained through properly selected Homeopathic remedies. With Homeopathic medicines, there is no chance of suppression of Ringworm infection and it is cured in a most gentle and efficient way.

Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat ring worm but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person.

There is no permanent soluion for skin diseases with modern medicine. You should take Nat Sulph 6x 4 tabs on eampty stomach in morning. Wait for 1 month after that you consult me.
