Hi doctor,

I am having ring like patches all over the body for the past five months. I have itching all over the body including private parts and now it spreads to face as well. I had Griseofulvin tablets, Liv-Cet-5 twice daily and Terbinaforce Plus cream for the last 2 months. But, it did not cure my problem. So, I have stopped taking it now. Kindly help me.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You should not have used Terbinaforce plus cream (combination of Clobetasol propionate, Ofloxacin, Ornidazole and Terbinafine) as it contains Clobetasol which is a steroid. It aggravates fungal infection and does not get it cured.
  • You should take capsule Itraconazole 100 mg twice daily along with Luliconazole cream on the affected area once daily.
  • You can continue with Liv-Cet-5 (Levocetirizine) twice daily as it is an antihistamine and will relieve itching. Continue this treatment for two weeks and then revert back.
  • Besides this you should not share your towel and soap. Wear loose cotton clothes and be in a cool and airy environment.

The Probable causes:

Fungal infection.

Probable diagnosis:

Tinea.

Hi doctor,

Luliconazole is not available nearby. Can you suggest an alternative for Luliconazole?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • You can use Sertaconazole cream on the affected area twice daily. It is as effective as Luliconazole cream.
