My son has valley fever he is in prison, so i am worried they are giving himthe correct cream for his patches all over his body which are dry and itchy.
Hello pleasnat valley & welcome to the site. This may help, but don't expect most of these institutins will not let you bring in medications from the outside. Here is what I found about Valley Fever,
There are no published prospective studies that examine optimal antifungal therapy for coccidioidomycosis. Mild cases often do not require treatment. Oral Fluconazole and intravenous Amphotericin B are used in progressive or disseminated disease, or in which patients are immunocompromised. Alternatively, itraconazole or ketoconazole may be used.
Posaconazole and voriconazole have also been used. There is currently no practical preventative measures available for people who live or travel through Valley Fever endemic areas. It is recommended to avoid airborne dust or dirt, though this is not a guaranteed manner of prevention. People in certain occupations may be advised to wear face masks.[
Wishing you & your son the best...
The fungus grows on damp skin, nail beds and the like.
I happen to be using fluticasone propionate cream for fungal infection around nails to reduce inflammation.
His fungus will clear and be fine as long as he has received the basic med.
Good luck to him. Glad you are looking out for his well being.
