Customer Question
I think I have...

I think I have ringworm on my left ring finger (I don't wear any rings) but I don't know.

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

It's itchy and burns occasionally. It started as a small spot and I kept a bandaid on it and use an anti-fungal cream but it's wrapping around the finger.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

I had athletes foot, but that went away no problem. It's been a few weeks, at least. Nothing seems to help.

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

Time to go to a walk in clinic?

The bulk of it is a shiny inflamed spot with little bumps that ooze clear liquid..?
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 11 months ago

OK

That really won't work well for a fungal infection like this

Try over the counter clotrimazole cream twice a day for two weeks

If that doesn't work you'll need prescription ketoconazole cream

Please let me know if you need any more information

It's for sure a fungal infection?
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 11 months ago

Yes--it's like ringworm

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
