How long have you been using the over the counter cream and how often do you use it?

 

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
2 or three days
Expert:  TBurtonRN replied 6 years ago.

A cream like Lamisil AT will generally require a shorter time. Be sure to follow the directions on the box.

Lotrimin if that is what you have purchased will also work. It may just take a bit longer.

It is very possible that you spread the fungal infection from your feet to your penis. It is quite common.

Here is a link to the Mayo clinic that will detail prevention and other information.

If over the counter treatment doesn't work, just call your doctor. It is really no big deal and is quite common.

I hope this helps, T
