Hi thanks for posting in HCM.
Possibly your friend has acquired a superficial fungal infections of lower trunk due to dermatophytes, commonly reffered to as tinea corporis
. How ever nondermatophytic superficial fungal infections are not uncommon. So let him visit a mycology laboratory and get a skin scrapping and microscopy done for confirmation of a fungal infection.
The usual approach to the management of dermatophyte infections is to treat with topical therapy if possible.
Topical cream/ointment includes: terbinafine, miconazole, econazole, clotrimazole
If he need oral antifungal
and lesion is a smaller
Terbinafine, 250 mg/day for 2 weeks;
, 200 mg/day for 1 week;
Fluconazole, 250 mg weekly for 2-4 weeks
For Larger lesions Griseofulvin
, 10-20 mg/kg/day for minimum 6 weeks.
Flucan 150 is Fluconazole 150 mg tablet, an anifungal agent and cetcip is cetrizine, an antipruritic agent.
thank u once again. Get back to us, if any furher querries.
