Ok thank you I do mixed martial arts brazkalisn jiu jitsy and work in hot pizzeria all the sudden it started happening 4 months ago I kinda had same thing g but dr have me bates and an I flex this time the doctor gave me nystatin cream a year ago I had a possible std contact but at my physical which was 7 months after the incident hiv and everything was negative
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 8 days ago.

The most common cause of recurrent fungal infections is moisture in the area. So keep the area dry and do not put any chemical like scents etc. Wear cotton underwear. If the Nystatin cream does not resolve the infection and there is recurrence, you may need oral anti fungal medicines; the recommended regimen is fluconazole 150 mg every other day for 3 doses, followed by weekly fluconazole 150-200 mg for 6 months.

Also apply the Nystatin cream for 7 days more once all the symptoms had gone. This will prevent the recurrence.

It cause me cause it says re accident fungal infections is hiv but I tested negative and it was 4th generation test
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 8 days ago.

Fungal infections are common in all the people and recurrent fungal infections are highly common in general population.

You should not worry at all about HIV especially with 4th generation test being negative.

Can I ask you one more thing sir does this look like a rash forming or acne break out it is my forearm
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 8 days ago.

This is more likely to be acne break out. Do not treat it aggressively by local cream as it is likely to resolve spontaneously.

To answer your direct question, the red spot on your tongue looks completely normal. Does not represent any fungal or infectious origin. Looks perfectly normal.

Expert:  Dr. Captain replied 2 day ago.

Based on different times of day, different diet changes (acidic, basic foods, other specific correlatives), the buds on the tongue can sometimes look more or less red
