So you have already tried 2 creams and still no response then your husband needs oral antifungal medication

Expert:  Zee J replied 17 days ago.

Usually it is Tab Terbinafine 250mg once daily for 2 weeks

Expert:  Zee J replied 17 days ago.

You need prescription for that

Expert:  Zee J replied 17 days ago.

Plus you can buy over the counter cream also called Hydrocortisone to apply twice daily

Expert:  Zee J replied 17 days ago.

are you still there??

Do you have any further questions???

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
He already used the daktacort for one week
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
How can he get the prescription for the oral tablet?
Expert:  Zee J replied 17 days ago.

Yes he needs to get prescription from GP

Expert:  Zee J replied 17 days ago.

or might can buy online also

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
The GP is not available today and my husband is just so frustrated
Expert:  Zee J replied 17 days ago.

At least you can start using hydrocortisone cream twice daily that would improve inflammation and itching plus Tab cetirizine 10mg daily at night

and then get prescription for Terbinafine

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
