Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 57-year-old male. My weight is 165.34 Ibs. I do not have BP problems or diabetes. I have been suffering from itching near the thighs and underarm area for the last two months. I have taken Terbinafine 250 mg once daily and Luliconazole cream for six weeks. Since the last two to three days, the itch has started again. Please advise.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your concern may be intertrigo secondary to candidal yeast infection. You should stop using the Terbinafine tablet and try Sporanox (Itraconazole) 100 mg capsule. Have it once daily for four weeks.

Patient's Query

Thank you, doctor,

Is it Sporanox or Sporanox?

Yes, it is Sporanox (Itraconazole) 100 mg.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
