Fungal infections can appear almost anywhere on the skin, but they are often most difficult for those who experience this issue somewhere on the face. Fungal skin infections on the face can occur in many different ways, but there are also a number of methods through which these conditions may be prevented and treated.

Yes, you are more prone to fungal infections because the antibiotic may kill the normal harmless bacteria that live and make it easier for fungi to flourish.

I have swollen, flaky lips and small cracks at the corners of my mouth. I have used a fungal cream, vaseline, and am now trying neosporin. What could be causing this and how do I get rid of it?


1st thing you need to do is wrap your face up nice and tight so no one else has to look at it and there's no chance of spreading it. then you need to sneak your tailend over to either your doctors office or the free clinic cause it sounds more like an antibiotic thing than it does a fungal thing.

A guide to Anti Fungal Medications



Everyone has some kind of fungal germs living around them harmlessly, but some of them thrive on the surface of the obdy and lead to fungal infections in areas such as; nails, mouth and ******.
There are several different types of medications that are used to treat fungal infections. It really depends on the type of infection and severity as to which one is appropriate.
The medications work by causing damage to the cell wall of the fungus which in turn causes the cells to die.
Antifungal creams and pessaries:
Most commonly used to treat skin and ******* fungal infections. Some doctors also prescribe a mild steroid cream at the same time to reduce any inflammation.
Antifungal medications taken orally:
As these medications don't absorb into the body, they are the choice of drug for mouth and throat infections.
Antifungal injections:
This is not a common form of treatment for antifungal infections and will only be used if the infection is very serious.
Alot of antifungal medications can be bought over the counter at a pharmacy.
Just check with your pharmacist if you are taking any other medications to make sure that there isnt' a problem with them interacting.

Treatment of lyme disease


Treatments and drugs
By Mayo Clinic Staff

Antibiotics are used to treat Lyme disease. In general, recovery will be quicker and more complete the sooner treatment begins.

Antibiotics




  • Oral antibiotics. These are the standard treatment for early-stage Lyme disease. These usually include doxycycline for adults and children older than 8, or amoxicillin or cefuroxime for adults, younger children, and pregnant or breast-feeding women. A 14- to 21-day course of antibiotics is usually recommended, but some studies suggest that courses lasting 10 to 14 days are equally effective.


  • Intravenous antibiotics. If the disease involves the central nervous system, your doctor may recommend treatment with an intravenous antibiotic for 14 to 28 days. This is effective in eliminating infection, although it may take some time to recover from your symptoms. Intravenous antibiotics can cause various side effects, including a lower white blood cell count, mild to severe diarrhea, or colonization or infection with other antibiotic resistant organisms unrelated to Lyme.


After treatment, a small number of people still experience some symptoms, such as muscle aches and fatigue. The cause of these continuing symptoms is unknown, and treating with more antibiotics doesn\'t help. Some experts believe that certain people who get Lyme disease are predisposed to develop an autoimmune response that contributes to their symptoms. More research is needed.

Bismacine


The Food and Drug Administration warns against the use of bismacine, an injectable compound prescribed by some alternative medicine practitioners to treat Lyme disease. Bismacine, also known as chromacine, contains high levels of the metal bismuth. Although bismuth is safely used in some oral medications for stomach ulcers, it\'s not approved for use in injectable form or as a treatment for Lyme disease. Bismacine can cause bismuth poisoning, which may lead to heart and kidney failure.

How long does it take to treat with the antifungal medication?


The length of treatment depends on what type of fungal infection you have, how severe it is and if you have any other health problems - for example, problems with your immune system. Some courses of treatment can be as short as a few days; other courses can be a long as ten weeks (for example, fo ringworm infection of the scalp).
