Customer Question
I am obese and...

I am obese and I have just developed smelly sores under the flabs of my stomach. The doctor gave me lamisil and did not even check sight. The smell is obvious and I cannot get to the site to wash properly. When I do I am unable to dry properly. I don’t go out now and was wondering if it is possible to hire a home care nurse to visit daily and help with my problem

Doctor's Assistant: How long has this been bothering you? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?

No it is a skin problem

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

Lots of problems but nothing to affect this

Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. If you have open sores, its possible for a home care nurse to come out and treat you. You will need to see a dr first for a diagnosis , who can order the home care. Most likely this is intertrigo. A chronic yeast infection. It leads to a bad smell. You can treat it with tinactin spray.

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.
