Hello,
Welcome to HCM,

As you are having symptoms of fungal infection for which your doctor has prescribed topical antifungal cream and oral antifungal drug for your condition. The fungal infection is more common in this area and the fungus can sustain for longer duration of time as this area is moist and favors the growth of fungus.

These medications can will help to control the fungal infection and it should be taken for longer duration of time. You requires physical examination to confirm the presence of fungal infection.

The antifungal oral medication should be taken once a week for atleast 10-12 weeks to treat the condition.The personal hygiene should taken care this area should be kept dry and clean.
Thank You.

I have Chrones Disease and a very weak immune system. I have had Ringworm on the bottom of my foot for nearly 4 months. I have been on Anti-bacterial, anti-fungal prescriptions for the past 5 weeks. It was healing but now that my prescription is gone it seems to be coming back quickly. Im not able to see my doctor for another month. What can i do in the meantime?

I noticed a week or so ago a circular slightly red spot on the upper inner part of my arm. It does not burn or itch and it is not raised. When I first saw it I thought maybe it could be ringworm. I don t know what I had that thought, but did. Then a few days ago I noticed what looks like small red callouses on top of the same two fingers on both hands. They are not dry, don t burn or itch. This morning, I discovered that I had sllightly round reddish/violet spots (the size of a lemon) in the groin area on both thighs. Again, no burning itching or pain of any sort. I just read something about flesh eating diseases and am worried I may have something like that. I do not take any meds; only vitamins D and B12 (which may be low at this time). Thank you for any information on this. I am getting an appointment with a dermatologist this week, but in the meantime, I am concerned because I have never had or seen anything like this. It s not grotesque or anything, but not narmal.
