How to cure the ring worm on the vagina that has turned into folliculitis which is itchy and inflamed?

hello, I think I may have ringworm on my vagina that has turned into folliculitis of the pubic hair? I have a very itchy dry patch of skin on my outer vagina lip and thigh crease, with small itchy inflamed circular/oval bumps on my thigh near the bigger patch, as well as the top of my vagina, where the most pubic hair grows, and somewhat inside of the tip of the "slit". I just need advice, I am freaking out and have no insurance!! I have been using lamisil once a day and trying to keep it dry and clean for the past 3 days. any more suggestions on how to cure it?

Hi,
From history it seems that you might be having fungal infection super added with bacterial infection as well.
Along with anti-fungal tablet Lamisil, take one course of antibiotic to cure bacterial infection.
Apply triple acting cream locally.
Keep local hygiene hygienic.
Ok and take care.

Hello, I ve been diagnosed with ringworm from my general doctor and he prescribed creams clotrimazole with benathasone I m not sure if that s the spelling. But I started to get more ringworms he prescribed terbinafine 250 mg and I ve only been on this medicine for 9 days. I think there are still more ringworms growing out and the other ones have dried up and turned brown I have fair skin so they look brown and dry. They are also peeling a little bit. How long will it take for me to see results? Is it normal for me to keep getting more even though Im taking medicine for it? For the ringworm to stop stop growing and go away? I m really scared I was reading other articles and they described ezcema like this too. I m so scared. Please help me.

Hi, ive had two ring worms on my arm since may 2011. Both of my arms had one but they went away. A few months back i started getting it on my neck, and then on my right arm it came back. Then i started getting it on my face. The docters gave me ketoconazole 2% cream. It did not work so i went back for a refill. It still didnt work so they gave me pills. The pills did not work either. About a month ago my aunt brought me the same cream but from the Dominican Republic. It was working really well, untill i came back to my school on campus and took a shower it started getting red. My friend told me about useing clorox bleach. Ive been useing it for a week now and its just very red on my neck and arm. What should i doooooo!

I am male and have an active yeast infection (jock itch). I decided it would help if I shaved my pubic hairs. As I was shaving, I nicked myself in 2 places. The nicks bleed, but not bad or for very long. I applied nystatin cream on the area, including nicks, when I got out of the shower. I am also taking oral medication (terbinafine). Should I be concerned with the infection become systemic?

I m taking terbinafine and I want to know why I shouldn t drink coffee? I d like to continue coffee, though I understand terbinafine might increase the jitteriness factor (so I will drink less), but I want to know if coffee restricts the effectiveness of the terbinafine? Thank you! Johnny

My Dr said I had severe Tinea Cruis, but both topical and oral anti fungal s were not working. Ketoconazole 2%, and OTC miconazole, and oral Terbinafine. After 4 weeks of topical and 3 weeks of the oral terbinafine, he perscribed me a tube of Betamethasone, and everyday it has gotten better. But now says it was an alergic reaction, but nothing has changed in my groin area.
