Hello doctor,

I have one red spot on my right hand, which is a fungal infection. Sometimes, it will grow in other body parts like stomach or legs, but then automatically disappears in 2 to 3 days. I am so worried. What to do? What is the treatment for this?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • In the case of a fungal infection, you can try using Onabet (Sertaconazole) cream or Episert (Sertaconazole) cream or DK gel (Miconazole), twice a day.
  • But if there is a recurrence, then oral antifungal medications should be considered.

Thank you doctor,

No doctor, I do not have diabetes or hypertension. I have sent images of the lesion.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I have seen the images (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • There is no need of oral medication at present. I suggest you try applying the following after consulting your doctor.
  1. Terbikem (Terbinafine) cream, once daily.
  2. Episert or Onabet (Sertaconazole) cream, once daily for two weeks.
  • If you notice new spots on other parts of the body, apply these creams.
