Dear Sir,
Please find attached the images. It seems that infection has increased now.
Thanks and best regards,


Thanks for posting your query. I can understand your concern.

From the picture you seem to be having yeast infection and also molluscum contagiosum.

I would recommend application of clotrimazole cream twice a day for two weeks. That would help resolve the yeast infection which is characterised by the red pimples. The molluscum contagiosum which are the lesions having a pit on the top, needs to be treated with Aldara cream. You will need a prescription from your doctor for it.

I would recommend consulting your dermatologist if you don't start seeing an improvement after application of clotrimazole cream.

Please let me know if you have any queries.
Take care

Patient replied :

Thank you sir.

No, you need both for effective treatment.
Please get Aldara and start applying it too.

Patient replied :

I am following the clotrimazole only and it seems that infection is clearing. Please suggest if I should start Aldara as well or just follow clotrimazole only for now.
Thanks and regards.
