Suggest treatment for ringworm infection in labia minora and anus
likely ring worm infection
Thanks for the query to HCM,
If your gyro has diagnosed it to be a ring worm infection and given you an oral anti fungal and with nystatin , then it would still take about 7 days to see the effect completely and the rash to vanish if it is actually a fungal infection.
It is suggested it you can attach a picture of the lesion for a better understanding of the lesion and help with the diagnosis,
Is this an MD? I'm confused by your answer
Yes i am a gynecolocist and a gene laparoscopic surgeon here madam. fOR YOUR KIND INFO WOULD LIKE TO STATE THAT RING WORM INFECTION IS A YEAST INFECTION OF THE SKIN and i am not referring it to a GIT manifestation at all.
Though your lesion around the labia is free from itching probably because you have been advised nystatin with steroids which can decrease local inflammatory process and decrease itching, a classical feature of skin yeast infection, but a diagnosis cannot be reached with certainty unless a swab test is performed locally for culture ora local exam has been made.
AS you have not furnished any attach picture of the lesion, it incapacitates me completely to give my view just based on your description.
So it would be requested to share an attached picture of the lesion on this platform for a better diagnosis of a ring worm ( skin yeast infection) or any local inflammatory dermatitis.
