General & Family Physician Dr. Ramesh M.Vachharajani's  Response
Hi,
The rash you are having is likely of ring worm (tineasis).
The cream you are using is O.K. but you should go for oral anti fungal tablets for about one month which will give you complete cure.
Take help of your doctor.

It started out as looking like ringworm on my right arm, about the size of a half dollar... a week later I had a rash of little pale pink/ bright red patches everywhere, sizes range from as small as pin dot to the size of a quater and itches like crazy. Im also on a pill form for the itch as well. Its been three weeks now and Im on the pill form for Ringworm yet nothing is happening and seems to be getting worse. Its on my entire back. Chest. Stomache. The back of legs. In my belly botton and butt crack and its now on my arm from the shoulder to the elbow.... I honestly dont agree with the doctor. This cant be ringworm. What else could this be?

I have a rash that is spreading. It is dark red and 3 are circles and one loops out of a circle and there are small spots around the area, is this ringworm because i had it on my shoulder before this rash on my thigh appeared or something more serious. Is there any way to get a picture of it to you?

Hello Doctor,I have been suffering from itchy scrotum since a year. Back in Dec 09, I had a secondary fungal infection on the scrotum due to excessive sweat. The doctor had prescribed Flucanazole tablets and Zole-F cream. It took 3 weeks to heal. But, the infection did not seem to cure 100%. My scrotum often goes dry and white and becomes itchy and with a burning sensation. When the scrotum skin is stretched, I observed a kind of drought area like texture with small dark patches in irregular shapes. Applying coconut oil provides temporary relief. It does not itch during night times, except in one or two instances. I am not sure if it is still a fungus infection. I do not have fungus infection on foot or else where. During the mid of the day, the scrotum skin becomes dry and the skin turns pale white and it burns a bit. This kind of infection is observed only on the scrotum, and not on the penis nor on the bottom of the scrotum. I also have developed 3 small blisters on the upper left side of the scrotum, which earlier were the size of a pea and now has reduced in size, but is still there. I apply coconut oil daily morning and before going to bed and stay calm for 30 mins until the skin absorbs it, and I am doing it since a year and yet no signs of cure. I fear of approaching a skin doctor as he might prescribe steroids which may worsen the situation.

Adding to it, I recently developed 3-4 white patches on the left side of the groin area which itches quite often. I started applying a Micanazole Nitrate + Fluocinolone Acetonide based cream since last 4 weeks. Please let me know if my scrotum skin infection is an indication of fungal infection.

Thanks in advance,

I have been diagnosed with mycoses and prescribed with Clomatrizole containing tablet for 3 day as suppositories. I have put my-self as well on non-starch and non-sugar diet.
It has been three days now and I have had low grade fever of round 37.2 C as well as have lost 2 kilos since then (however usually I excersize heavily daily but I haven't done it for a week now). Is it a normal reaction?
