Patches of bumps that disappear with anti-fungal creams, big bumps look like ring worms, small stay longer. What could this be?
Hi i get patches of bumps that disappear after applying untifungal within 4-5 hours. Sometimes a patch is localized to 5 inch square and the bumps are small 1cm. sometimes they are spread between shoulder and elbow , under arm , and the bumps can be as mush as an inch wide. Some of the bumps are not in a patch and stand separate like mosquito bites. The big bumps will look like ringworm but will disappear after 4-5 hours after initial application of the untifungal cream. Small might stay longer and they look like mosquito bytes. Some of the small ones in a patch might grow and become half an inch. What could it be?
Hello.You are getting hives(wheals in technical terms)which is part of an allergic reaction(called urticaria).consult a dermatologist,we will need to find the cause, antifungal creams are useless,since these hives go off on their own,even without treatment.
These are ...fungal called Tenia corporis..,
Topical terbinafine cream..,
Oral antifungal like fluconazole..,
salt water washing on affected site..,
Clotrimazole dusting powder dusted on affected parts..,
