Hello! I have tinea corpori...-1
Doctor :   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor. In fungal infection, in present scenario course of 2 weeks is not sufficient. Ne w resistant species of fungus have emerged which are likely to causes relapse of disease if not treated properly. I prefer to advise topical antifungals like miconazole/sertaconazole and oral antifungals like fluconazole/terbinafine / itraconazole. The course need to be continued for 1-2 months depending on the response. Also, the topical creams need to be continued Hope this helps.
