I have LOTS of little red dry patches on my skin... I'm using the "fungus cream" but its still spreading!
It started with a fairly large dry red patch on my lower back, then on my arm, then on the skin opposite the arm (Which suggests it spread onto it from the contact) then I got about 10 more all over me - luckily only one on my face which doesn't show.

Anyway I went to the doctors, she said it was a fungal infection and was given some cream (Dactoten or something) and some "dandruff shampoo" which I have to put over my body twice a week. I'm supposed to use the cream 2 - 3 times daily but I have about 20 patches on me (Only a few are noticeable, the others are very small but get bigger every day) and it takes FOREVER to put it on. It doesn't seem to be helping anyway and everyday I find a new one...

They itch so much but only when I touch them and I really just want to get rid of them and stop getting more, I feel stupid going back to the doctors just about this and it seems I'll never get rid of this quickly spreading fungal infection. HELP!

go to your family doctor

go doctors

It may not be a fungus, or the fungus medication they've given you isn't strong enough.

It sounds like you either have eczema or something else other than a fungus. You may have an allergy, an internal infection that is showing itself through your skin or a condition that may be triggered by your immune system (like some kinds of psoriasis).

Talk to the doctor and ask her to look at the areas again. If it is truly fungal, then you'll need a much stronger treatment, because fungi usually respond quickly to treatment. I seriously doubt that is what you're working with, though.

If your doctor doesn't know what's up or can't help, ask for a referral to a dermatologist. They go to university for at least 5 years (up here, anyway) beyond medical school so they can learn how to properly identify all the different skin conditions.

I Think I can help you with this one. You should start using natural products straight away. Soap, Shampoo, Conditioner, Deodorant, Tooth Gel, all made from Aloe Vera. There is a very good cream called Propolis Cream. It is not available in shops. Check out all the products on www.aloedistributor.com No matter what country you live in there will be a HQ for Forever Living some where not too far from you. If you e-mail me at [email protected] I will help you further. Cheers and good luck. Frank. Happy new yr.

Please Try Neem oil, it is a ancient Indian (from India) cure for MANY skin ailments. It is available at most healthfood stores, or on the internet. Also make sure to eat more green leafy vegatables for the vitamin A and folic acid. This is recomended by my mother who owns a healthfood store. It can only help, I have seen it help many skin conditions very rapidly.
Good luck!!!

That sounds like shingles, why not suggest that to your doctor...I had it but it took a few doctors to diagnose it, mainly because I was only 12 at the time. Hope you are better soon xx

triamcinolone cream...it's an RX but it cures that stuff...I had it on my chest once from a tanning bed...cleared it right up

Try exzema cream then ? it could be that, or scabies ointment ? I know it sounds gross, but it's best to get every possibility looked into.

excmend ointment is supposed to help

maybe it's psoriasis

to me, this sounds like RINGWORMS. they're not worms it's a skin fungus. you can get it from cats. so if you have a cat take it to the vet and see if that is the source. also don't scratch!!! the germs get under your nails and that's how it spreads. wear long sleaves and pants. and keep your hands washed all the time. the rash should get better soon. but if it doesn't, go back to the doctor. or get a second opinion. doctors can be wrong too.just be patient. and you shouldn't feel stupid going back to the doctor. that is why they are there. to help you!!

It does sound like psoriosis,it can appear overnight and spread all over,its a horrible thing to have,i have to use dovebet cream twice a day,its a pain in the ****

I would stop using the dandruff shampoo, it doesn't help at all. I ahd the same problem on my cheeks. It helped a little, but didn't really work. It may be fungal, I don't know! People use corteson, but that just makes your skin white and flaky. My aunt actually recommended a home rememdy! No side effects what so ever and the itching is gone the next day:

Buy some coconut oil, and rub it on the area. Should be gone in a few weeks.

try lamsil its really good for fungal infections you can get it in a tube or spray

Could be it isn't fungal and an inflammatory response to something your eating, new soap, detergent, meds, food ? Maybe ask your doc about a hydrocortisone cream? Need to see a dermatologist.

Hi! I would go to a pharmacy and get a recommendation for an anti-topical ointment.
Yeast infection ointment may also help. **My son has dry itchy skin and we use NYSTATIN. It is a topical cream, antifungal. but it will help with the healing. It is non-greasy and inexpensive.
You could also try having an oatmeal bath. Aveeno brand has a bath remedy that is called Oatmeal bath. This may relieve the itch. It takes the itch out of chicken pocs.
If it is still spreading, after using the cream she gave you, go back to your doctor. . . it could be something she over looked.

Ask your doctor for Clotrimazole, it is great.
I had fungal infections under my armpits [or irritation from anti-persperent, to this date I haven't figured out which] and it works well.

Very possible it's NOT fungus....perhaps stop using cream and go back to DR ..dont feel stupid...ask to be sent to a dermatologist pronto to get proper diagnosis and medication.
