Rash-like things developed around the anus area causing irritation. Doctor said it's a kind of fungus and prescribed Clotrimazole cream, apply twice a day for 2 weeks. It's been 5 days and see no sign of improvement. Should I continue with this cream or need something different?
I have used the same medicine for another issue with my son and saw improvement in just a few days. Everyone is different of course. But I would think you would have noticed some change by now. The diagnosis is a little vague too. My sons doctor said this medicine is the first thing they try. If it doesn't work they have to do some more testing to specify what type of fungus or infection it is. My advice is to make another appointment.
