Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been using Prednisone? Any improvements so far?

Oral 7 days

Doctor's Assistant: Have you used anything besides Prednisone for this?

She prescribed an steroid ointment

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

what’s your opinion

That's not hives and the steroid ointment could make this worse

That's fungal--not exactly ringworm but a close cousin. No specific trigger for it

I suggest you try over the counter clotrimazole cream twice a day for two weeks to clear this up.

If that doesn't work you'd need prescription ketoconazole cream or oral Diflucan

Please let me know if you need ant more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
