Hello, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!

Scars of herpes infection are like other scars. Please do as follows:

1) Avoid exposure to direct sunlight & apply a good sunscreen.
2) You can apply Hexilak gel 2 times a day. [prescription medicine-- plz take doctor's advice].
3) Take good nutritious food.

Wishing you best of health.

I have a parasite problem and I do not know how to get rid of them. They show up under my skin, mouth, nose,. I have seen them come out of my skin, (small worms), and when I go to the bathroom, (worm), they are small and some bigger. I am freaked out and worried about infection as my face looks bad! I have even been admitted to the hospital w/severe infections on my fingers, had to have surgery due to the infections, then later diagnosed with undetermined bacteria infection, what?? Please advise.

Hi, I developed a fungal infection first about 10-12 weeks ago. The treatment took about three weeks,but it finally worked. I received the treatment at an Urgent Care facility (not a hospital). Another episode occurred. Treatment followed. It worked. I saw my primary care physician (a fabulous doctor) eight days ago for my usual follow up. The fungus had made its reappearance a few days before. He gave me another ketoconazole prescription. He said it is very difficult to get rid of it. I am 76 y.o. and active. I teach two classes each semester at a community college. Any suggestion on what path to take. Thank you.
