One doc seems to think I have problem with my hair flacules and told me to use a Peroxide body wash but don't seem to be working
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

Have you tried anti fungal treatments in the past ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No unless that is what the body wash is for the last Doc gave me ?
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for your reply.

NO , that is not an anti fungal wash.

I would suggest that you should use Canestan cream or Lotrimin cream on the area twice a day for 15 days.

You should take prescription medication called Diflucan once a week for 6 weeks to eliminate the fungus.

You can use a Ketoconazole shampoo or soap to cleanse the body area where you have the rash.

Please do let me know if you have any further queries.

How am I to get the Diffucan with out a prescription
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

You will get it only by prescription. It is not sold without prescription. You can try at the local Walmart or Walgreen if they can provide you .

Do let me know if you have any further queries.
