Sorry for my lack of response. I had trouble viewing this post.

thank you very much for your message.

You can use over the counter Canestan cream on the area three times a day for 3 weeks.

In take of oral Diflucan 150 mg once a week can help eliminating your problem.

The oral medication may need a prescription.

The local application would be available over the counter.

Please do remember that this should be continued for atleast 3 weeks as this would help in eliminating the condition.

Do let me know if you have any further queries.

The oral Diflucan 150 mg is that something that is necessary or can I substitute it for something else?
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

You cannot substitute with anything tablet orally.

It is not necessary.

You can try treating your condition with the application of Canestan cream on the area twice a day for around 3 weeks . That also can help you over time.

Do you need any more information ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I was trying to look up the Canestan cream and all that showed up was the cortizone-10. Is this a main ingredient or does it come in its own brand?
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

No , Canestan cream has Cotrimazole in it. The other options is Lotrimin.

Avoid cortizone-10 cream on the area.
