Horrible athletes foot? super itchy?
I've tried everything. I'm now using a prescription cream but its still soooo itchy. I have tiny blisters also and red raw skin. Advice :( Asked by Elton Handly 1 year ago.

Rx cream from an M.D...? Phone the office and ask for a Rx for the pain and itch. He/she will call it into the pharmacy. Most cases of athlete's foot can be treated at home using an antifungal medicine to kill the fungus or slow its growth. But you aren't "most cases". You have a "Vesicular infection". Non-Rx products: (Lamisil, Micatin, Lotrimin AF, Tinactin) are available at any pharmacy or mart store and many are Rx-strength so start there. Non-Rx antifungals are applied to the skin and come in spray versions, powders, lotions or creams. Rx antifungals may be tried if non-Rx meds FAIL Over-the-counter products will sooth the pain and itch as well..and can be used with Rx meds (Naftin, Mentax and clotrimazole). Rx antifungals can also be taken as a pill, which are called oral antifungals (Lamisil, Sporanox and Diflucan). Although symptoms may decrease or stop shortly after using antifungal treatment(s), it is important to complete the full course. If you stop early, chances are it's not clear and will return even more severe. Reinfection is common, and athlete's foot needs to be fully treated each time symptoms develop. Also; the blisters, redness, swelling and extreme itching mean that you likely have a secondary infection going on. You originally may have had garden-variety athlete's foot but because it's a severe case (and likely because you've been scratching non-stop).. it may have resulted in blisters and open wounds.. which may now be infected. Toe-web infections occur between the toes, especially between the fourth and fifth toes. This is the most common type of athlete's foot infection. Treat mild toe-web infections by keeping feet clean & dry and using non-Rx antifungal products. When symptoms turn severe (infection), Dr. may prescribe a combo of topical antifungal cream plus a Rx oral antibiotic. He/she can also prescribe something to soothe the burn and itch as well. Moccasin-type athlete's foot causes scaly, thickened skin on the sole and heel of the foot. Often the toenails become infected (onychomycosis). A moccasin-type infection is difficult to treat because the skin on the sole of the foot is very thick. Non-Rx meds may not penetrate the thick skin of the sole well enough to cure moccasin-type athlete's foot. In this case, a Rx topical antifungal that penetrates the sole, (like Ketoconazole), may be used. Rx Sporanox oral antifungal meds are sometimes necessary to cure moccasin-type athlete's foot. Here's YOU: Vesicular infections Vesicular infections, (BLISTERS), usually appear on the foot instep but can also develop between the toes, on the sole of the foot, on the top of the foot, or on the heel. This type of fungal infection may be accompanied by a bacterial infection. This is the least common type of infection. Treatment of vesicular infections can be done at home or Dr's office. You can dry out the blisters at home by soaking your foot in non-Rx Burow's solution several times a day for 3 or more days until the blister area is dried out. After the area is dried out, use a topical antifungal cream as directed. You can also apply compresses using Burow's solution. Don't use gels because they contain alcohol and may sting/burn. Use soothing calamine lotion (which also helps with severe itch). If you also have a bacterial infection, you will most likely need an oral antibiotic. If you have a severe infection, Dr. may prescribe corticosteroid pills. After improvement, corticosteroid pills are gradually stopped, and antifungal creams and/or pills are used until the infection is gone. Prevent athlete's foot: -Keeping feet clean and dry. -Dry between toes after swimming or bathing. -Wear leather shoes or sandals that allow feet to breathe. -When indoors, wear socks without shoes. - Wear all-cotton socks to absorb sweat. -Use talcum or antifungal powder on feet. -Allow shoes to air-dry for at least 24 hours before you wear them again. Set them in the sun to kill fungi. -Wear shower sandals in public pools and showers. Severe infections that appear suddenly (acute) usually respond well to treatment. Long-lasting (chronic) infections can be more difficult to cure (require Rx antifungal, taken orally, like Sporanox). Toenail infections can cause Onychomycosis (the nail lifts away from the toe and falls off), which can develop with severe athlete's foot and tends to be more difficult to cure than fungal skin infections. Tea Tree Oil can be applied to the feet and/or grape seed oil. Up your garlic and water in-take. Don't touch your eyes after you've touched your feet. Answered by Caryn Deschene 1 year ago.

If you apply honey to your face for 10-15 minutes it will make your face smooth and dry out pimples. Some good recipes are: Moisture Mask Mix 2 tablespoons honey with 2 teaspoons milk. Smooth over face and throat. Leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water. Honey Mask Recipe The best facial mask is honey. Place a cloth in warm water and apply to your face to open the pores. Smear on honey, and leave on for 15 to 30 minutes. Rinse off with warm water, then use cold water to close the pores. Use once a week Carrot Top Facial Mask (normal - oily skin) 2-3 large carrots 4 1/2 tablespoons honey Cook carrots, then mash. Mix with honey. Apply gently to the skin, wait 10 minutes. Rinse off with cool water. honey (1 tsp) with 1/2 (tsp) of cinnamon powder. Apply for 15 minutes. Due to the antiseptic properties, bacterial infections in the skin are treated.

Stressed about ringworm help.?
he scraped some off and 2 weeks after i came the first chek up when he scraped some off, he told me it was ringworm, he gave me cream called naftin. he told me to put it on 2 trimes a day for 2 weeks, i was like woa 2 weeks! Asked by Penni Tognazzini 1 year ago.

3 weeks ago i got a little quarter sized circle that looked like ring worm, i went to the doctors a week later and he didnt think it was ringworm, instead he thought it was some kind of alergic reaction so he gave me some foam thingy. then i had to comeback 2 weeks. during the 2 weeks it almost disapeaered until i went and got sunburned, this made it really big like the size of a can. and he gave me some cream. well i really want to go out places but im so self concious about it. btw its on my shoulder. i cant go to the beach bc i dont want to get sunburned again and possibly make it bigger. i dont want to play spoirts bc i dont want to intefer with the healing process bc of sweat and clothing. so right now im sitting shirtless waiting for this thing to freaking disapear. how long does it take to heal with medication and what are some signs of healing? and when im in the shower, can i scrub it with soap or no? , what can i do to make it go away before next week? i want this thing gone! Answered by Faustina Mackle 1 year ago.

ok, the first 2 weeks do not count... the fungus was growing the whole time. When you started the anti-fungal cream is when the treatment began in reality. Give yourself a few days to have it start clearing up (so you are less contagious) and then live your life normally. The ring growing had nothing to do with the sun, and everything to do with you not being on the proper meds for your illness. I am not worried about the sun making it grow, that is not possible! I am worried about you re-infecting yourself and infecting others! Are you also doing preventative measures like changing your sheets and shampooing with an anti- dandruff so the fungus will not spread to other places? Wear a shirt so you can not spread it to your friends or pets while you are treating it! Do not share your towel with anyone! (bath or beach!)Good hand washing after applying the cream is also important. Just bathe regularly. I would not scrub the area with anything and then use that same washcloth on any other area of my body, personally though. Check your pets to make sure they do not have it (it should look like little, round ,hairless patches. Lysol anything that you might have had your bare shoulder on (sofa, etc) as well. This is easy to treat, but a really annoying condition! lol! Go to the beach, just keep a shirt on and don't share your towel or any other personal items! Answered by Trey Herrlich 1 year ago.

if it's ringworm, I don't see any reason why you shouldn't shower and use soap on the affected area. but if it makes it worse to get out into the sun and heat, I would certainly wait about doing that. it sounds like it's going to just take some time to clear completely up. if you ever start to notice that you're getting ringworm again, just go to your local pharmacy, wal-mart, walgreens, etc. and get yourself a tube of Tinactin or Lotrimin athletes foot cream and use it. it will cure ringworm just as well as what you're using now. for now, just keep using what your doctor prescribed. it should be better by next week. so don't worry. you'll be back out having fun in the sun in just a few more days. Best Wishes. Answered by September Guiffre 1 year ago.

dampen a washcloth with water and put it on it, make sure not to scrub it wash with bar soap sweat wont bother it if it is ring worm be careful becasue it can spread from one to 3 rings over night. if you do this and put the cream on it should go away within 3 to 5 days Answered by Jaclyn Orhenkowski 1 year ago.


Have I developed an allergy to acne medication?
Oh, and my dermatologist prescribed me Doryx and Clenia wash after I went back and told him about my reaction to the Duac (which HE prescribed me!) ...but I'm scared to use it because I don't want to have another reaction. Asked by Antoinette Scholer 1 year ago.

I developed a weird infected spot on my cheek about a year ago and it wouldn't go away. My dermatologist put me on Gris-Peg pills and Naftin and Desonide creams for it and it cleared up more or less. I had used ProActiv for a few years before I got this infection but stopped when I realized that it was irriating the spot even more. Now that I haven't been able to use ProActiv for a few months my acne has worsened. I tried Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10, Duac topical gel, and ProActiv again and ALL of them made my face really red and itchy and hot the day after I used them. I used many different acne medications before and didn't have any problems with them. What could be the problem here?! Answered by Loma Maas 1 year ago.

Ask your DERMATOLOGIST! Answered by Mazie Riebow 1 year ago.

I used to have very bad acne when I was younger. Try Dove bar soap and wash your face a few times daily with clean hands and no washcloth. Rinse with your clean hands and pat dry with a clean towel that hasn't been dried with a fabric softener. Should help! Think about any type of food that you eat a lot of. Cut it out and that should help you also. Mine happened to be milk and I had to stop drinking it for a few months. It worked and cleared up the problem! Answered by Vincenza Fornkohl 1 year ago.

I had used ProActiv for a few years before I got this infection but stopped when I realized that it was irriating the spot even more. Now that I haven't been able to use ProActiv for a few months my acne has worsened. I tried Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10, Duac topical gel, and ProActiv again and ALL of them made my face really red and itchy and hot the day after I used them. I used many different acne medications before and didn't have any problems with them. What could be the problem here?! Answered by Elsa Mearns 1 year ago.

Ask your DERMATOLOGIST! Answered by Charise Enciso 1 year ago.

I used to have very bad acne when I was younger. Try Dove bar soap and wash your face a few times daily with clean hands and no washcloth. Rinse with your clean hands and pat dry with a clean towel that hasn't been dried with a fabric softener. Should help! Think about any type of food that you eat a lot of. Cut it out and that should help you also. Mine happened to be milk and I had to stop drinking it for a few months. It worked and cleared up the problem! Answered by Byron Domin 1 year ago.

Horrible athletes foot? super itchy?
I've tried everything. I'm now using a prescription cream but its still soooo itchy. I have tiny blisters also and red raw skin. Advice :( Asked by Leah Romanson 1 year ago.

Rx cream from an M.D...? Phone the office and ask for a Rx for the pain and itch. He/she will call it into the pharmacy. Most cases of athlete's foot can be treated at home using an antifungal medicine to kill the fungus or slow its growth. But you aren't "most cases". You have a "Vesicular infection". Non-Rx products: (Lamisil, Micatin, Lotrimin AF, Tinactin) are available at any pharmacy or mart store and many are Rx-strength so start there. Non-Rx antifungals are applied to the skin and come in spray versions, powders, lotions or creams. Rx antifungals may be tried if non-Rx meds FAIL Over-the-counter products will sooth the pain and itch as well..and can be used with Rx meds (Naftin, Mentax and clotrimazole). Rx antifungals can also be taken as a pill, which are called oral antifungals (Lamisil, Sporanox and Diflucan). Although symptoms may decrease or stop shortly after using antifungal treatment(s), it is important to complete the full course. If you stop early, chances are it's not clear and will return even more severe. Reinfection is common, and athlete's foot needs to be fully treated each time symptoms develop. Also; the blisters, redness, swelling and extreme itching mean that you likely have a secondary infection going on. You originally may have had garden-variety athlete's foot but because it's a severe case (and likely because you've been scratching non-stop).. it may have resulted in blisters and open wounds.. which may now be infected. Toe-web infections occur between the toes, especially between the fourth and fifth toes. This is the most common type of athlete's foot infection. Treat mild toe-web infections by keeping feet clean & dry and using non-Rx antifungal products. When symptoms turn severe (infection), Dr. may prescribe a combo of topical antifungal cream plus a Rx oral antibiotic. He/she can also prescribe something to soothe the burn and itch as well. Moccasin-type athlete's foot causes scaly, thickened skin on the sole and heel of the foot. Often the toenails become infected (onychomycosis). A moccasin-type infection is difficult to treat because the skin on the sole of the foot is very thick. Non-Rx meds may not penetrate the thick skin of the sole well enough to cure moccasin-type athlete's foot. In this case, a Rx topical antifungal that penetrates the sole, (like Ketoconazole), may be used. Rx Sporanox oral antifungal meds are sometimes necessary to cure moccasin-type athlete's foot. Here's YOU: Vesicular infections Vesicular infections, (BLISTERS), usually appear on the foot instep but can also develop between the toes, on the sole of the foot, on the top of the foot, or on the heel. This type of fungal infection may be accompanied by a bacterial infection. This is the least common type of infection. Treatment of vesicular infections can be done at home or Dr's office. You can dry out the blisters at home by soaking your foot in non-Rx Burow's solution several times a day for 3 or more days until the blister area is dried out. After the area is dried out, use a topical antifungal cream as directed. You can also apply compresses using Burow's solution. Don't use gels because they contain alcohol and may sting/burn. Use soothing calamine lotion (which also helps with severe itch). If you also have a bacterial infection, you will most likely need an oral antibiotic. If you have a severe infection, Dr. may prescribe corticosteroid pills. After improvement, corticosteroid pills are gradually stopped, and antifungal creams and/or pills are used until the infection is gone. Prevent athlete's foot: -Keeping feet clean and dry. -Dry between toes after swimming or bathing. -Wear leather shoes or sandals that allow feet to breathe. -When indoors, wear socks without shoes. - Wear all-cotton socks to absorb sweat. -Use talcum or antifungal powder on feet. -Allow shoes to air-dry for at least 24 hours before you wear them again. Set them in the sun to kill fungi. -Wear shower sandals in public pools and showers. Severe infections that appear suddenly (acute) usually respond well to treatment. Long-lasting (chronic) infections can be more difficult to cure (require Rx antifungal, taken orally, like Sporanox). Toenail infections can cause Onychomycosis (the nail lifts away from the toe and falls off), which can develop with severe athlete's foot and tends to be more difficult to cure than fungal skin infections. Tea Tree Oil can be applied to the feet and/or grape seed oil. Up your garlic and water in-take. Don't touch your eyes after you've touched your feet. Answered by Kristal Blaske 1 year ago.

If you apply honey to your face for 10-15 minutes it will make your face smooth and dry out pimples. Some good recipes are: Moisture Mask Mix 2 tablespoons honey with 2 teaspoons milk. Smooth over face and throat. Leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water. Honey Mask Recipe The best facial mask is honey. Place a cloth in warm water and apply to your face to open the pores. Smear on honey, and leave on for 15 to 30 minutes. Rinse off with warm water, then use cold water to close the pores. Use once a week Carrot Top Facial Mask (normal - oily skin) 2-3 large carrots 4 1/2 tablespoons honey Cook carrots, then mash. Mix with honey. Apply gently to the skin, wait 10 minutes. Rinse off with cool water. honey (1 tsp) with 1/2 (tsp) of cinnamon powder. Apply for 15 minutes. Due to the antiseptic properties, bacterial infections in the skin are treated.

Stressed about ringworm help.?
he scraped some off and 2 weeks after i came the first chek up when he scraped some off, he told me it was ringworm, he gave me cream called naftin. he told me to put it on 2 trimes a day for 2 weeks, i was like woa 2 weeks! Asked by Ollie Garrette 1 year ago.

3 weeks ago i got a little quarter sized circle that looked like ring worm, i went to the doctors a week later and he didnt think it was ringworm, instead he thought it was some kind of alergic reaction so he gave me some foam thingy. then i had to comeback 2 weeks. during the 2 weeks it almost disapeaered until i went and got sunburned, this made it really big like the size of a can. and he gave me some cream. well i really want to go out places but im so self concious about it. btw its on my shoulder. i cant go to the beach bc i dont want to get sunburned again and possibly make it bigger. i dont want to play spoirts bc i dont want to intefer with the healing process bc of sweat and clothing. so right now im sitting shirtless waiting for this thing to freaking disapear. how long does it take to heal with medication and what are some signs of healing? and when im in the shower, can i scrub it with soap or no? , what can i do to make it go away before next week? i want this thing gone! Answered by Cleveland Golob 1 year ago.

ok, the first 2 weeks do not count... the fungus was growing the whole time. When you started the anti-fungal cream is when the treatment began in reality. Give yourself a few days to have it start clearing up (so you are less contagious) and then live your life normally. The ring growing had nothing to do with the sun, and everything to do with you not being on the proper meds for your illness. I am not worried about the sun making it grow, that is not possible! I am worried about you re-infecting yourself and infecting others! Are you also doing preventative measures like changing your sheets and shampooing with an anti- dandruff so the fungus will not spread to other places? Wear a shirt so you can not spread it to your friends or pets while you are treating it! Do not share your towel with anyone! (bath or beach!)Good hand washing after applying the cream is also important. Just bathe regularly. I would not scrub the area with anything and then use that same washcloth on any other area of my body, personally though. Check your pets to make sure they do not have it (it should look like little, round ,hairless patches. Lysol anything that you might have had your bare shoulder on (sofa, etc) as well. This is easy to treat, but a really annoying condition! lol! Go to the beach, just keep a shirt on and don't share your towel or any other personal items! Answered by Rachell Andy 1 year ago.

if it's ringworm, I don't see any reason why you shouldn't shower and use soap on the affected area. but if it makes it worse to get out into the sun and heat, I would certainly wait about doing that. it sounds like it's going to just take some time to clear completely up. if you ever start to notice that you're getting ringworm again, just go to your local pharmacy, wal-mart, walgreens, etc. and get yourself a tube of Tinactin or Lotrimin athletes foot cream and use it. it will cure ringworm just as well as what you're using now. for now, just keep using what your doctor prescribed. it should be better by next week. so don't worry. you'll be back out having fun in the sun in just a few more days. Best Wishes. Answered by Lorretta Harshfield 1 year ago.

dampen a washcloth with water and put it on it, make sure not to scrub it wash with bar soap sweat wont bother it if it is ring worm be careful becasue it can spread from one to 3 rings over night. if you do this and put the cream on it should go away within 3 to 5 days Answered by Karoline Mittag 1 year ago.
