Suggest treatment for fungal infection on skin

default
Posted on Thu, 20 Mar 2014
Question: I have these red bumps, were more like bumps yesterday but today or still red but flatter. I go to massage parlors frequently (no sex, only happy ending by hand) and saw an escort 2 weeks ago who says she was clean. I spoke to her today and claims to see a doctor regularly and is clean. I also started using a new soap from TJ. I read that linear "bites" may be a sign of public lice or bed bugs. My wife had similar marks on her lower stomach, similar area to where I have it. What could it be?

Thank you. Is this something I could have contracted from my risky behavior? Also, this isn't genital warts correct? If left untreated, will it clear up on its own? I've had athletes foot for a long time, never treated it. Could what I have in my lower abdomen area be related to the athletes foot? Also, do you recommend a particular brand of anti fungal cream? Thanks

Brief Answer: yes Detailed Answer: Hello Yes, this infection may spread due to risky behavior. This is not genital wart and it may clear up on its own, but its better to get treated. Even athletes foot is caused by same fungus. The treatment remains same. You can apply funcicide, clodid or candid cream. All the above are trade name of same cream ( clotrimazole). Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
