Stomach skin hangs over...

Stomach skin hangs over. Recently I have an itchy rash between the layers. Family doctor prescribed a fungus medication without even looking at it.

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

Didn't fill the prescription as it was costing $60.

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

Cean with alcohol or peroxide or soap. Neosporin. Calomine lotion. Antibacterial powder.

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

After applying calomine lotion an hour ago, it looks much less red but still itchy.

Did you get the photo?

Got it--thanks

That definitely looks fungal

You can use over the counter clotrimazole cream twice a day for two weeks to clear it up

And I'd have you switch to Caladryl lotion and you can take oral benadryl or Claritin too

Please let me know if you need any more information

It's called Calahist

That's similar to Caladryl

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I have been applying the cream you recommended but the rash is still very itchy. Can you prescribed a prescription cream which would be stronger?

We can't give prescriptions here--that would be both illegal and malpractice

At this point you need prescription ketoconazole cream from your doctor

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
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.
