User :   my toes get itchy in between and the skin looks white when i itch it pops and then water comes out so i get a whole and it bleeds why is this happening??
Doctor :   Hi,
User :   hello
User :   ok i have a couple of questions that are happening with my body
Doctor :   I could be a fungal infection
User :   but i dont have any green toes or anything its just in between my toes like in the skin
Doctor :   need , not be green always
Doctor :   since the spaces hold moisture , it a favorable spot for the fungal infection
User :   oh ok so what can i do or supplement that i could take
Doctor :   applying anti fungal cream and followed by keeping the space dry by dusting powder will get you off the problem
User :   so what happends to the fungi
Doctor :   Antifungal cream would be MICANAZOLE cream , applied twice daily after good cleaning
User :   so does the fungi goes away or stays dorment
Doctor :   it does go away
Doctor :   once you apply the cream for 3 or 4 days , you see it getting better then you need to apply KETOCONAZOLE dusting powder to keep it dry
User :   and what is micanazole for and what is ketoconazole for
Doctor :   both are antifungal
Doctor :   MIcanazole comes in semisolid creams hence used in initial treatment as its potent and Keto is in powder form used to keep the area dry preventing recurrence
User :   ok the next question is i have an IUD and does that makes me gain weight
User :   i have mirena
Doctor :   yes, fair enough chances of weight gain
User :   ok also i have a daughter she is three and i breastfed her for 6 months but im still lightly lactating from my right breast is there a problem
Doctor :   not a problem , it can happen due to mild hormonal changes that happens during regular cycles
Doctor :   But get a gynecologist's opinion for the same
User :   ok so i also had my appendix removed on april 18 2009 in the Caribbean and my scar still hurts
Doctor :   yes, scar tissue has nerve endings which do trigger the itchy os pain sensation you may have to get it excised if its big
User :   ok i will see a ob/gyn thax
User :   ok
Doctor :   Is there anything i can help you with ?
User :   so what can i do for my scar hurting
Doctor :   you can apply moisturizer which can help to some extent but removal of it is an ultimate answer if its troubling a lot
Doctor :   you have to meet a surgeon for the same
User :   ok
User :   last question
Doctor :   please proceed
User :   can i take fat burners with the mirena
Doctor :   what kind of fat burners do you want to try ?
User :   ok like oxielite pro, jetfule, green tea extract. because i was told that it could affect my heart with the hormones of the mirena
