Thank you for the photos sent .

There seems to be a fungal infection on the skin with secondary eczema.

I would suggest him to take oral Claritine once at night for 10 days

I would recommend you to take Diflucan 150 mg once a week for 6 weeks to clear the fungus out of the skin.

You should apply a mixture of Canestan cream and Cortaid cream on the area twice a day for 10 days .

This would help heal the area .

Do let me know if you have any further queries.

Is this all over the counter medicine? I've never heard of Diflucan or Canestan Cream?
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 9 months ago.

Yes , these are over the counter.

You would get them at Walgreens or Walmarts.

Do let me know if you have any further queries.

Both Diflucan and Canestan cream are not sold over the counter in the United States
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 9 months ago.

These are all available at Walmart or Walgreen over the counter : So many patients take it regularly for their conditions otc:

Instead of Canesten try the following :

(brand name Lotrimin AF® cream), miconazole (Micatin®), and tolnaftate (Tinactin®) are available over the counter.

For Fluconazole oral tablets :

Fluconazole has recently been withdrawn as otc . however it canada it is available over the counter.

The other option for you to is start with the creams and then later you can take a prescription from your doctor for Fluconazole depending on the response.

Do let me know if you have any further queries.
