Question: Hello.
My boyfriend (male of 36 years old) has been diagnosed with Lyme Disease. He's been put on a one month course of doxicycline. He believes he has developed an yeast infection. Should he stop the course of antibiotic? He's only been on it for a week and he has 3 more to go.

Complete course of doxycycline.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome to health care magic,

If he has been diagnosed with lyme disease then he should complete the course of antibiotic (doxycycline),there is no need to stop any medicine.

He can continue with anti-fungal drug (clotrimazole cream or gel) simultaneously as prescribed your doctor.

If you need any more help then feel free to ask me.

Regards,

Earlier, around 2 months back I suffered from fungal infection near groin and inner thighs for which dermatologist prescribed clotrimazole, ketocanazole and fulcunazole and it was cured.Now mild itch started again this time all over body including groin and scrotum. I am 23 years old male.once in a year or two i suffers from such skin problem due to which my inner thighs and butts have become darker.plz suggest some solution

I just recently had ringworm on my thigh and I treated it with clotrimazole lotion and tea tree oil. I did that for 4 weeks, but now I am getting these light red dry patches on my legs. They don t itch, like the ringworm did, but I am wondering if it s still that, or if it may be something else.

I m a 32year male, generally healthy. Literally over a night or two, I have developed a red, raised rash on the skin between my butt cheeks. I originally thought it was haemorrhoids and so tried zinc oxide and lidocaine cream, after bathing them in salt water, but felt it started to spread further onto the cheek and up towards my scrotum. I therefore thought it could be fungal nappy rash (due to sweating and hot weather) and so bought clotrimazole 2%, which I have ude for 2 days now, but to little improvement. Any thoughts please? Thank you!
