They are applied twice daily.
Now if you do not see an improvement after 3 weeks of application, you need to see a dermatologist- sometimes the patches on the face and head need oral antifungals which are available only by prescription.
Hope this helps :-)
It itches occassionally at night time and can often gets worse when I'm stressed. It doesn't seem to be getting much bigger but I wonder if it's linked to any sinus infection as I have sinus problems on and off and the patch appears approx 1 inch above my right eye with smaller marks coming down towards the center of my forehead. I've been applying the Daktarin for over 3 weeks with only a very minor improvement if anything. To get to see a Dermatologist I need a GP referal which can take a while, can I get these recommended creams and orals from the GP?
I have rosacea on other parts of my face so wondered if this could be linked? and I'm not on any other medications
I've tried the medicated shampoo approach but that didn't work and although I use an anti fungal now I'm reluctant to use a hydrocortisone cream as the one I tried previously made it worse.
I've added a photo to the link below, unfortunately it doesn't show it well in the light here but gives you an idea the size and area
I've now been to see my gp and another dermatologist who say that it's neither cancerous or fungal. They say a combination of both exzema and rosacea. My next question is what's the best cream I can use which won't irritate the skin and will reduce redness. I am also considering having it lasered so your opinion on that as well please.
