Hello again

Based on the images you uploaded, a fungal infection is likely. If the diagnosis is in doubt then scraping test should be performed to confirm it.

Initially topical antifungal such as clotrimazole are advised. If the lesions do not resolve with topical treatment then oral antifungal drugs such as terbinagine can be considered for treatment.

The adverse effects which you described are not usually scene with antifungal treatment specially topical preparations.

For quicker resolution adding a zinc supplement can also help. Keep the area dry and for superimposed bacterial infections in the areas which are cracked/ open wounds, topical antibiotics like gentamicin should also be applied.

After eating any kind of a meal, from small to large portions, I can feel the food remaining in my stomach for the rest of the day. Sometimes it even goes as far as 24 hours. I always have a bad taste in my mouth and often i regurgitate pieces of food that are half digested. I can feel the food rot in my stomach, but no matter what I do it still stays there. Do you know what causes this and how could I fix it?
