Cetrizine in fungal infections
I had fungal infections from a month and so decided to visit a skin doctor. He prescribed Eberconazole tablets and cream, but also prescribed Cetrizine HCl tablets. Actually from 2-3 days, i had runny nose and sneezing problems also but i did not told doctor, but i was surprised to see doctor prescribed its solution. I want to know the relation between sneezing, runny nose and fungal infections. When i don't take Cetrizine tablets, i get the problem again. I haven't found any relation on net.

Cetirizine is only given for itching in any skin condition. . The treatment for fungal infection is simple. You have to take anti fungal tablets and creams for 4 to 6 weeks following which it resolves. Do not apply soap on that area and do not self treat with over the counter steroid creams. Mistreatment with steroid creams like panderm, fourderm, betnovate, candid b etc and self treatment with cheaper generic medicine is the most common reason for recurrent disease. Another cause of recurrence is cross infection from other infected people in the house. Kindly call me or send photos using online consult option for accurate diagnosis and treatment.  If this is fungal infection, it needs to be treated as early as possible as it will spread further on your body  and also to other people in the household.
