Customer Question
Hello, I have had...

Hello, I have had a fungal infection on my arm right below the elbow. I take Clotrimazole and Betamethasone cream and use it for 10 days, twice a day. The infection clears up after the 10 days, but has been coming back. Is there anything else I should be doing?

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

Nothing helps but the cream. My health has been very good. My only problem is hypertension and I take Lisinipril for that.

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

Nothing that I can think of. I'm 70 years old and very active and fit.

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.

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.
