User:hi doc
Doctor:How can I help you today?
User:here is my query
User:I got one noticeable (a circular swell with a small whole - a bit > 2mm) and two small pus sores kind of at my genital area just above my penis in the area where hair grows. I visited dermatologist and he told that its just a minor follicle infection and suggested these medication. I also suggested to use an anti fungal soap which I was using. Here is the list. On day 1, I did not take anti biotics as I took them before 10 odd days. After using these medicines, I observed small dot like red sores (very very tiny) on the inner skin of my penis head. I visited the doctor again on day 3 and I was told that it could be due to friction during masturbation and also climatic changes and suggested to take plenty of water and also added couple of antibiotics to the course. I was told that it take 3-4 days for the pus sores to get compressed (my first point above), and the red spots are not an issue, they will go off. My doubt is like, are these many kinds of tables required to take or any excess in take have any negative impact on my body? Because, MOCA - 625 is a bit powerful I guess. Please clarify. Day 1: Terbinaforce - Plus Ointment: Apply 4 times a day Feristat - FZ : At night after dinner Rabekind - CP : Morning after breakfast Terbiforce tablets : Afternoon, after lunch Day 2: Candiforce - 100 : Daily Afternoon. Its an Antibiotic MOCA - 625 : Morning and Evening. Its an Antibiotic
User:is this ok to take this dose of medicines doctor?
Doctor:Candiforce 100 contains itraconazole
Doctor:It is an antifungal
Doctor:Terbiforce contains terbinafine, It is again an antifungal
Doctor:Rabikind is used for acidity
User:may b was it given to neuralize the acidity if caused by the other tablets?
Doctor:Moca 625 is an antibiotic
Doctor:it contains amoxycillin and clavulinic acid
Doctor:Ok I know folliculitis can be hard to treat.
Doctor:Treatment of folliculitis can differ from doctor to doctor.
User:based on the symptoms I mentioned above, may I know ur opinion please, I mean, is it really folliculitis?
Doctor:Actually it is hard to diagnose skin conditions from chat.
