Hi. Very often recurrence of the ringworm infection is seen due to irregular intake of medication. Oral itraconazole is usually need to take for continuous 1 month and topical cream for atleast 4 to 6 wks. Maintain hygiene, keep the area dry and clean. Use antifungal powder. Thanks.

I have been getting treated for fungal infection, which I got from my ex-partner, its been more than a year now it has not been cured with the treatment, started with alcros+lulifin+fungicros then it is always increasing and decreasing the time it is applied or taken, also used dermitraz. But the result is not there, doctor says it goes, I do not know should I believe him or not. I would request any honest doctor just tell me, is it curable from its root, or I have to stay with it lifelong, I am really very frustrated and upset. I want to move on in my life, but I do not want this to spread somebody else. Please help with honest answer. Thank you in advance.

Hi. No need to worry because this fungal infection is absolutely curable. U have to take regular oral medication for 1 month and topical for 1 to 2 months. Now a days patients are developing resistance to itraconazole (alcros, dermitraz)so if you are not getting any better with this and the condition stil persists then a full course of tab griseofulvin can be tried. But its not that once you are treated you will not suffer from this condition again in your lifetime, but of course there will not be any recurrence maintain hygiene, keep the area clean and dry. Thanks.

It can be because of dermatitis/ eczema or allergy or dryness or fungal infection or psoaiasis etc. I need details of case n preferably pics of affected area. In the meanwhile follow this moisturize frequently. Avoid sudden changes in temperature or humidity. Avoid sweating or overheating. Reduce stress. Avoid scratchy materials, such as wool directly in contact with skin. Avoid harsh soaps, detergents, and solvents. Be aware of any foods that may cause an outbreak and avoid those foods. For this homeopathic treatment is very effective for more details you can consult me.

Apply in the morning after bath and at night before sleeping. Atleast 4-6 hours it should be there. You can rub it onto the fungal area and also apply little bit in the normal skin surrounding it.

Hi. There are different types of paronychia and treatment modalities are also different. For acute paronychia oral and topical antibiotics are usually prescribed and for chronic paronychia antifungal tablet and steroid plus antibiotic combination cream is usually helpful. Visit nearest dermatolgist. Thanks.

You may be suffering from tinea cruris which is fungal infection of the inner thighs, groin and buttocks area. It is also called jock itch. 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 fourderm, panderm, quadriderm, dermi5, cloben g betnovate, dermikem oc, candid b etc lead to repeated case of recurrence and also side effects due to application. Do not use steroid containing combination creams. Please 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.
