Brief Answer:
Tinea Cruris

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

I could find the attached pictures. This is classical fungal infection/Tinea Cruris.

I would suggest a topical antifungal e.g Clotrimazole ceam, twice daily for 4 weeks.

An oral antifungal e.g Fluconazole 150 mg tablet once every week for 4-6 weeks is also advisable.

An OTC antihistamine e.g cetrizine 10 mg once daily would provide symptomatic relief from itching.

Brief Answer:
These are effective medications

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

You can purchase Fluconazole 150 mg tablet from a local chemist/pharmacy. However, it is a prescription product. It should be taken once weekly for 4 - 6 weeks.

Use plain clotrimazole cream twice daily rather than using a clotrimazole beclomethasone combination

Continue with Cetrizine tab 10 mg once daily (Cetrizine D contains a decongestant which is not required, rather take plain cetrizine tablet).

Brief Answer:
Fungal Infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

I have reviewed your latest pictures. These are all classical of fungal infection. Annular lesions with central clearing.

You may take fluconazole (tab. flucos 150 mg) once every week for 4-6 weeks.

Topically you may apply either clotrin-B cream (contains clotrimazole+beclomethasone) OR you may apply Sebifin-plus cream (contains terbinafine+mometasone), twice daily for 4-6 weeks

Oral tab cetrizine 10 mg once daily would provide you symptomatic relief from itching.

hi

I was diagnosed for facial Seborrheic dermatitis which caused some hair loss in the mustache area just above the upper lip and was advised to use mometasone furoate solution which has treated the condition, but i have a tiny bald spot where i was affected. The doctor had told me to apply a certain tincture to stimulate hair growth in the affected region after ten days of applying the mometasone furoate solution. Unfortunately, my wife lost the prescription and I dont know what kind of tincture was prescribed. I currently reside in different city and I cannot consult the doc again, and neither can call the doctor cause I do not have the doctors phone number.

Therefore, I'd really appreciate if you could please advise me as to which tincture I should apply.

Regards,
Rick
