Can you upload photo(s) of your dog's face to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see the icon) or you can use an external app such as dropbox.com/ I can be more accurate if I can see what you're seeing. How old is your dog, please? What testing other than a fungal culture has been performed?
