Okay to use hair products when i am on loprox shampoo for seborrheic dermatitis?
i am being put on loprox shampoo as a treatment for seborrheic dermatitis, is it okay for me to use hair products such as wax and gel and hair spray while i am on loprox shampoo? Asked by Alexander Doster 4 months ago.

Sure. Remember, the loprox is working on the scalp; the items you're mentioning are for your hair. The two happen to be in the same area of the body, but really are being treated with different items. The products will not interfere with your shampoo treatment. Answered by Georgine Koogler 4 months ago.


Could loprox (ciclopirox olamine) be used to treat balanitis?
i have a case of balanitis on the tip of my penis, and under my foreskin, and i have this antifungal creme i fouund in my medicine cabinet, called loprox 1%. its not expired. could i possibly use this to treat my ailment? Asked by Annamaria Caver 4 months ago.

It would depencd on the cause, an antifungal is literally that, antifungal, not antibacterial or anti allergy. If you are sure you have a fungal infection Loprox is ok, but it can cause itching and burning. It would be wiser to ask your doctor to diagnose the cause of your balinitis and give you the appropriate treatment. Answered by Temple Geeter 4 months ago.


Im putting Loprox on my penis head?
Im using this product beacause my doctor told me that i had fungus there , ive been using it for 2 days and nothing has changed is this normal or is this product not working? Asked by Alyssa Huling 4 months ago.

how long did the dr. say it would take to work give it a week and then if its not better go see your dr. again... Answered by Jordon Declet 4 months ago.

You need to follow the directions your doctor gave you. A lot of time fungi will not seem like there is any difference until the very end. They have a life cycle and the medication interrupts this cycle. You have to wait for all the organisms to die before the symptoms go away. Answered by Shanon Kilton 4 months ago.

Give it a week to 10 days if no change call your doctor again Answered by Nicolette Lovera 4 months ago.

first off, dont call it a penis head. second, why do you have a fungus? third, dont use the product be a man. and be proud of what your momma gave you. Answered by Doria Whitelightnin 4 months ago.

Loprox cream, lotion, and topical solution are prescribed for the treatment of the following fungal skin infections: Athlete's foot Fungal infection of the groin (jock itch) Fungal infection of non-hairy parts of the skin Candidiasis (yeastlike fungal infection of the skin) Tinea versicolor--infection of the skin that is characterized by brown or tan patches on the trunk. Loprox gel is used for athlete's foot, fungal infections of the non-hairy parts of the skin, and certain scalp inflammations (seborrheic dermatitis of the scalp). Answered by Vicente Templeton 4 months ago.

If the doctor diagnosed ringworm, then that is what you have. However, ringworm is not caused by worms. It is one manifestation of a yeast (candida) overgrowth. This is what is responsible for athlete's foot, nail fungus, jock itch, vaginitis and a bunch of other skin conditions, and other things too. You may want to go to www.hufa.org and click on the yeast link, for some basic information. If loprox is an anti-fungal cream, it should work, as candida is a fungus. Answered by Regine Trebbe 4 months ago.

It's a threadworm, my son had them a month or so ago. Go to your local pharmacy or doctor and they will give you a tablet that needs to be crushed up and given to her. As you found the worm, you, your cousins parents and any other family that the child has been in contact with will need treated too. Sheets, clothing, blankets and extra cleanliness (dusting, vaccuuming, hand washing after using the loo, before eating etc) is in order just incase there are any stray eggs around which would basically start the whole process of the worms again. Continue the vigourous cleaning for up to a week after the worms have gone too. Good Luck Edit: These are quite common in young children, she is not going to die, she just needs the right treatment. The medicine that i was given for my son kind of sedated the worms, so they could be passed more easily. Answered by Hester Sheng 4 months ago.

Ringworm is caused by the same bacteria as Athletes Foot...so use a medicine for athletes foot to cure it. I learned this from a doctor when one of my children had ringworm years ago. Answered by Kazuko Storti 4 months ago.

Ringworm comes from animals usually. I suggest if you sleep with your animals, or allow them to sleep on your bed, sofas, chairs, etc., you stop. Wash your hands after each encounter with an animal. If you get ringworm on your scalp, it will leave a bald spot and that can be very unsightly. You may want to check into a body detox for worms in general after this experience.

How do I get rid of stinky feet?
about a year ago, the skin around my toes started to get "eaten away" by what I think was a fungus. The Dr. did toenail fungus tests twice on a toenail that has turned black, and they came back negative. Now my feet have a terrible odor, and nothing has been solved regarding the black toenail. Is there... Asked by Shavonne Albee 4 months ago.

about a year ago, the skin around my toes started to get "eaten away" by what I think was a fungus.

Is there anything I can do to make my feet smell "normal", and treat my black toenail? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me! suangg Answered by Frank Hanigan 4 months ago.

Loprox gel will clear the skin and remove the foot odor. You will need to get a prescription for it. Answered by Khalilah Catterton 4 months ago.

The smell comes from bacteria that grow in shoes and on feet from the excessive moisture. To help shoes last longer, and cut down on the odors in them (and thereby reduce the feet smell) - rotate shoes. Never wear the same pair of shoes two days in a row. The shoes need to dry for 24 hours between wearings. Discard any shoes that you cannot remove the odor from. Wear cotton socks and leather shoes. These will help the feet to breath. Change socks daily. Wash feet with a good mild soap each day. Dry feet thoroughly. Apply a good foot powder or spray. I use a peppermint foot spray every morning on my feet and a generic Dr sholls's type foot powder in my shoes. Avoid wearing plastic shoes or nylon socks. I haven't tried this one, but it looks like it might be a help. Soak feet in bath of 1 cup vinegar, 1 dash dish soap, lots of warm water for 10 mins. Pat dry. Refill tub or bowl with warm water and oatmeal, squeeze oats till water is milky...soak another 10 or so. Pat dry..fresh as a daisy! The person who recommended this says it lasts several days too! These tips will not cure stinky feet, but may help with the problem. Answered by Tonita Lippi 4 months ago.

i am not a proffesional and could not advise you as such...the only thing i can think of is using antifungal spray, make sure to clean your feet well and have them well dried after showers..well dried in between toes..using feet powder could help for this...and do not use closed shoes for a long time..when you have the chance wear sandals...its good to soak your feet in water at least at least twice a week...i have heard that putting a cup of milk in the water to soak your feet helps all the dead skin peel off ... Answered by Meri Arcoraci 4 months ago.

Use nystatin powder in between your toes and avoid wearing shoes, aerate your feet as much as possible, keep them very dry after washing. Answered by Leona Slaby 4 months ago.

I know this is gross but is there anything to get rid of a toenail fungus?
I stumped my toe and broke the nail half way off and now when it grows back it is not attached to the skin. i asked my doctor who said it would go away but hasn't. pls help Asked by Nelson Alsup 4 months ago.

Try Loprox lotion I am not a dr nor anyting else Answered by Sigrid Goldsborough 4 months ago.

Thats probably not fungus. If you stub your toe sometimes it can take a long time for it to go back to normal. If you had fungus it would be flakey. For that they have prescriptions and I heard once that you could use tea tree oil. But I'd just wait it out. You need to allow time for your nail to grow back normally. Answered by Reba Srygley 4 months ago.

i think it will grow back, they grow out, now if it's a fungus there's creams & meds for that, good luck Answered by Loreta Sansotta 4 months ago.

you should go ask your parents or something. try some cream i saw some cream at target once. if the cream doesn't work see another doctor Answered by Deanne Keithly 4 months ago.


Good remedy for athlete's foot besides Lotrimin?
I've used Loprox, which works great, but is $120 a tube plus I'd have to make a Doctor's visit to get a prescrip? Right? Asked by Indira Debaecke 4 months ago.

Quinsana powder, it is behind the pharmacy counter and you need a doctor's permission but it works great. Answered by Lane Parfait 4 months ago.

How can you tell if ringworm is going away?
Is it suppose to look like dry skin? I been using Loprox cream has anyone used it? Asked by Cheryll Bertaina 4 months ago.

Oh, god, I've just gotten over ringworm. That sucks so bad! Well, I've got scars from the ringworm, so I don't know if it's gone away or what. A lot of the spots I had just disappeared, so I guess when it's gone, it just looks like normal skin. I would keep putting on the cream, though. I used Tinactin, which worked great for me. Answered by Jacquelyne Mccormik 4 months ago.

It works,just use it until the ringworm is gone. Answered by Luana Jaimes 4 months ago.

ask uer dr honey ok?to make sure its working goodluck. Answered by Cristal Fontneau 4 months ago.


Alternative way of getting dandruf?
Asked by Brooke Nikula 4 months ago.

There are other topical treatments =that often help: Loprox shampoo, Clobex shampoo, selenium sulfide shampoo, various topical steroids and foams. Your doctor can recommend what seems appropriate and try until the best one is found. There isn't one thing that works for everyone, but nearly everyone can be helped. drink plenty of water and get a plenty of sleep. Answered by Elenore Olowe 4 months ago.

Part your hair in a way you're not used to and stay out in the sun. You'll get a sunburn on the part and start peeling. Not exactly dandruff, but it's the best way I can think of to get dandruff. Good luck! Answered by Thea Swisshelm 4 months ago.

Dandruff is often caused by digestive problems. There are plenty of natural cures for detoxifying your system, and therefore, get rid of dandruff. One of them: Every night slice a lemon thinly, boil a cup of water, introduce lemon slices and let rest (covered) all night. Next morning filter liquid, add fresh juice of half lemon and drink. Repeat for 10 days. If you do not get rid of dandruff, you will still feel great because your liver, kidneys and intestine have been cleaned out. Answered by Lizbeth Meachum 4 months ago.

I am thinking you mean getting rid of dandruff. If you do, try a tea tree shampoo. Melaleuca makes a great one. If you can't get any of the name brand, try Wild Oats or a health food store. Answered by Beata Burich 4 months ago.
