Thanks for writing in.
The infection which you have described most probably is a fungal infection. Since it is lingering for a long time it is advisable to diagnose the exact fungus by doing a KOH mount of the scraping. This is usually done by a dermatologist. In the mean time I would advise the following for you
1. Use medicated keto soap for bathing
2. dust the areas with antifungal powder (mycoderm)
3. apply ketoconazole ointment at bed time to the lesions.
4. a course of antifungal medications after confirmation of diagnosis is advisable.
5. get blood sugars checked.

For your wife in addition to the above measures add
1. tab norfloxacin 400mgms twice a day for 14 days.
2. use condoms to avoid recrudescence of uti.
I hope this answers your querry.
With regards

Hello, my 19 month old A.A. daughter has blisters on various parts of her scalp. They first appear as a red, irrated spots. Then they turn into these white pus filled blisters. They break on their own and go away, then reappear on another part of the scalp. This has been going on for about 3 months now. the dermatologis said it was a ringworm, but I dont' believe it is. I was using Nizoral shampoo and naffitin gel on her scalp, but it hasn"t helped much. What else can i do for my daughter?
