Hi my husband is suffering from fungal infection of the groin , his dermatologist prescribed him canesten and nizorale cream. since he started the treatment his situation became much worse and the infection spread! so he went back and the doctor prescribed him Gupisone 20mg tablets and a hydrocortisone 17 butyrate 0.1% cream.

I have had a red, pimply, itchy rash on my upper chest x3 days. When i scratch it seems as though the vesicles are filled with a clear fluid and weep......i have tried hot showers, antibacterial soap , neosporin , aloe vera lotion, and hydrocortisone cream. It has become very dry, thick and leathery on my chest. I went in the sun hoping to dry it up without success. Last night I started a zpack I had had at home. I am 47 yr old white, female, 5 5 . 140 , no known health problems....can you please advise. I have no insurance.
