Skin infection fungus
For my prolonged skin fungus infection I have used weekly once fluconazole 150 mg. It was cleared a lot due to this medicine. I visited doctor again , he prescribed terbinafine 250 mg daily for 28 days. I am taking terbinafine from past 7 days, but now my skin condition again back to normal. Again all redness and itching back even though I am taking medicine. Please suggest shall I continue terbinafine or discontinue

Hello Its very common to get resistant and recurrent fungal infection these days. You need to use appropriate anti fungal medications in form of tablets and cream. Also, its important to use these medicines for appropriate time period. Better is to visit dermatologist in person , so that he/she can advice you regarding this after seeing present skin condition.
