Customer Question

I was wondering if there are any symbiotic fugal/bacterial (lichin, or commensurate symbiosis) skin diseases.
JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Doctor can help you best.
Customer: I am trying to figure out if it is possible, as treating with Cephalexin, or fluconazole independently will not fully eradicate the follicular seborrheic dermatitis.
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?
Customer: That should do, thanks.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi and thanks for the query.Yes, fungal infections can often get super infection with bacterial infections and this usually happens in long standing fungal infection in which scratching and abrasions are the norm. In such a scenario, antibiotics as well as antifungals are given simultaneously and this can be done either both drugs given orally or a topical antibacterial for the bacterial infection or vice versa.Let me know if you have further queries or concerns about this.Please do leave a positive rating for the service by clicking on the stars on top of the screen.Regards.
