... everytime I go to the bathroom it comes back and itches around the opening of my rectum. I must wash it out everyday and put a cream on it. I believe the fungus has migrated into my intestines and from there to other organs in my body. My eardrums itch, my eyes itch. My back itches. Only one doctor gave me Nizoral and it cleared up the itching for a couple of years but it came back and my doctor refuses to give me Nizoral saying it can cause liver damage. A lot of the doctors I've seen don't believe I have a fungus at all since early on in my treatment I took nystatin that killed off the physical signs of a rash but did nothing to stop the itching. So the doctors say they can't see anything, therefore there is nothing. In my opinion nystatin is the devil's drug. It hides the signs of the disease but does nothing to stop the symptoms. It's drivin me nuts. Is there a medication I can take long term to kill off jock itch fungus and is there a doctor who specializes in treating funguses or maybe a clinic or hospital that has a fungus treatment department?
Hope I'm not asking too much.
Have you tried fluconazole aka Diflucan, it treats fungal infections in a pill form. You also may have normal allergies and intestinal worms, the worms are very common where I live, have them check you for Pin worms. It would cause you to itch in the area near your rectum. There are meds you can take for that too.
There is an OTC dandruff shampoo called Nazoral... Use it on the areas 3 times a week
PLEASE READ FOR JOCK ITCH CURE!!! I PROMISE!!!
I don't know about systemic medicines, but if you want to kill Jock Itch on the surface use Boudreaux's Butt Paste. I had jock it for 5 MONTHS and I tried every over the counter you can name. My doctor also did not believe I had fungus. Regardless Boudreaux's is the best. Put a lot on, as many times during the day as you want and in 2 to 3 days you should see results, after a week of using it you should be cured. Though they say to keep using any treatment for a month because the fungus may still live. Boudreaux's is used for baby rash and works by keeping the area dry and not letting moisture in. I was losing my mind until somehow I stumbled upon this cure. Please give it a try, for your own sanity.
OMG sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place, but I can totally empathize with you. Take a RX called Griseofulvin. I have unknowingly had ringworm for about a year. I'm a girl, so no jock itch, but my body is plastered with ringworm and more upset tingly, so is my scalp which has caused major hair-loss. I'm a very attractive person but have extreme depression and emotional problems, and don't need this. I was prescribed Lamisil for a week... did nothing, had liver function test, and was fine, so switched to griseofulvin. Been on it for a week now and I can notice an improvement. Not huge improvement, but considering I've been riddled with fungus for a year, it's not bad. I was unable to seek help until recently. The dermatologist I went to said there was nothing wrong with me, but then I went to another general doc and he diagnosed ring worm. It's humiliating. Also, my hair is like its stuck in my scalp in rings... does anyone else have this problem?
