Welcome to XXXXXXX

Fungal infection can develop during antibiotic course.

You can apply Candid/Nystatin Cream locally twice daily.

Don't apply soap on affected area. Just wash with water. Don't rub to clean.

You can take Tab. Fluconazole-150 daily for a week.

Thank you for posting your query. Hope you found my response to your query informative and helpful.

If you have further concerns in this regard, I would be happy to discuss those with you as well.

With good wishes,
