Resolved Question:

For the last 3 weeks I have an itch and redness around my groin, bladder,inner thights, testicals and penis. I,ve been to the doctors twice, one doctor described it as Male thrush. I have been prescripted 2 types of cream and I,m more than half way through some antibiotics. The itching is just as bad and now the bottom of my stomach is itching and a rash has started. I haven't changed any shower gels or washing power and its not a sexual thing.

Thanks. Just one question--did any of the creams help this at all?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

The daktacourt eased it, but the 30gramm tube didn't last too long. I have seen my doctor since, who has given me 3 x 30g of Daktarin cream and I am now taking Itraconazole 100mg tablets.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK. This definitely looks like tinea corporis--a fungal/yeast infection. Sometimes these organism are very resistant to antifungal creams and an oral medication like the itraconazole is needed. If you hadn't just told me that your were prescribed that, that would have been my recommendation--either that or fluconazole orally. Hopefully you're now on the right track with the pills and this should finally clear in about a week.

Can you tell me what causes tinea corporis, please

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Well, most often there isn't any specific cause. We do see it more often in diabetics.
