Question: I have a skin rash on my right hip. It consists of large and small gray circles, is very itchy. A dermatologist has ruled that it is not seborhhea, psoriasis or exzema. I have treated it with two different creams: (1) Nystatin and Triamcinolone Acetonide USP and (2) Floucinonide Ointment USP, 0.05%. Neither have had any effect and the little gray circles (painful to the touch) seem to keepon growing. Could it be some sort of fungal infection?

Hello, my 84 yo father in law has been suffering from frequent uti s for the past 3 years. originally diagnosed with kidney CA, then bladder CA. The last Pet scan was negative but still continues w/ frequent UTI s, strong urgency, and frequency with only about 200cc of output. He was place on 1000mg of Cellcept BID and 15mg of prednisone everyday due to his myasthenia gravis. He is now suffering from severe diarrhea. He was hospitalized last week with deydration. The Dr s did an EGD and colonoscopy and found a few little ulcerated areas in the small bowel and nothing real significant on the lower portion. They did multiple random bx s. We havent received those results yet. He is obviously immunosupressed due to his medications and has chronic infections (UTI s, cellulitis, staph etc)My question is... could he be suffering from the CMV in his urine causing all of the UTI s and in his colon causing all of the diarrhea and colitis-like symptoms?
