Rashes Questions

I had a ring worm infection and treatment with Terbinafine 250 mg daily for last 4 weeks. But 5 to 6 days interval I am getting allergic rashes on hands and legs. I am suspecting any food is making this allergy. So can you please help me know what should I eat or not along with Terbinafine?

Allergic rashes could be due to existing fungal infection or terbinafine. What are the rashes like? Are they itchy do they disappear on their own without any treatment and then come back again? It could even be worsening of fungal infection as resistance to treatment is very common.

Fungal infection or Ring worm. When occurs in groin, called as jock itch. Usually fungal infection is common in moist areas of body like skin folds. It's mostly circular or round in appearance. May be red or black in colour. Treatment depending on the type and severity. Avoid sharing clothes, towels and soap; sweating also increases it. As it has to be differentiated from eczema and infection, its a must to see and confirm the diagnosis for proper treatment. So, please send photos of the affected area by direct online consultation for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

Turmeric is rich in antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, which soothes rashes and relieves itching. Apart from olive oil, castor oil and coconut oil also help heal rashes naturally.

I am 34 year old lactating mother. Baby is nearly 3 months old. I have been feeding her properly since her birth. 10 days ago I noticed itching and rashes on both of my hands. I thought it is normal, but second day the itching aggravated and rashes became elevated on both hands with severe rashes and bumps. I immediately consulted the doctor and he prescribed antibiotic (amoxicillin _ Potassium clauvinate 625 mg twice a day and Prutrip 10 mg once daily along with uniplex ayurvedic lotion). Things didn’t improve at all even after the course of 5 days with medicines were completed. Then I consulted another doctor. He said that this is fungal infection. He again prescribed the same antibiotic with another brand name for 5 days, along with levocetrize twice daily for 5 days. He also prescribed betnovate gm and lulimac cream to be applied on skin once daily after after washing the affected site with potassium permanganate. The rashes and itching on the hands have subsided, but I feel itching and rashes on other parts of the body including the breast area and stomach. I am troubled with itching and more concerned about baby. Kindly suggest the remedy. Kindly also let me know if it is fungal infection, why antibiotics are being administered.

Oatmeal When it comes to alleviating skin irritation and inflammation oatmeal serves as an effective option given its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. It is particularly helpful in treating rashes triggered by poison ivy, eczema, chicken pox, sunburn and allergies. Mix a cup of finely ground oatmeal in warm bath water and soak in it for at least 15 or 20 minutes. To treat rashes on the face, apply a mixture of equal amounts of oatmeal and plain yogurt mixed with a little honey. Aloe Vera Thanks to its antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory and emollient properties, aloe vera is excellent for treating a number of skin ailments including rashes as also soothing the skin. If fresh aloe vera gel, which is ideal for the purpose is not available, you can buy aloe vera gel or extract. Cold Compress A cold compress can be beneficial in reducing rashes, especially those caused by heat, insect bites, poison ivy and shingles. It helps ease swelling, inflammation and itching and is particularly useful if a rash begins to develop into blisters. Rub ice cubes in a sealed plastic bag or an ice pack over the affected area for a few minutes. Alternatively, you can simply soak a clean washcloth in ice-cold water and place it on the rash for about 10 minutes. Note: Avoid placing ice cubes directly on the skin. Apple Cider Vinegar Raw and organic apple cider vinegar is a common home remedy to treat skin rashes and ease itching. Its acetic acid content helps counter skin infections or skin allergy that could be causing or aggravating the problem. Place a cotton ball dipped in apple cider vinegar over the affected area If apple cider vinegar causes irritation, dilute it with water before applying on the skin. If this still irritates your skin, don’t persist with it. Chamomile Chamomile is very helpful in treating rashes. It relieves itching, soothes the skin, reduces inflammation and helps healing thanks to its anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory properties as also antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral effects. Soak a cloth in chamomile tea and place it on the affected area as a compress – repeat two or three times a day. Chamomile is also applied on the affected area by diluting a couple of drops in two teaspoons of coconut oil or another carrier oil. Neem In large part due to its anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-irritant, antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial properties, neem (also known as Indian lilac or margosa) is very useful in treating a number of skin ailments including eczema, rashes, acne, scabies, psoriasis and various infections. It also contains antioxidants that prevent ageing and revitalize skin cells. Boil some neem leaves, strain the solution and allow it to cool. Place a cotton ball soaked in the solution over the affected area for at least 10 minutes.
