This might be a bit off topic as it is not directly related to UC...
Its seems I've picked up foot fungus. It's on the skin on my left foot, it covers about
1/4 of the skin on my foot. I am treating it for 3 months now. It pulled back a bit on one part of my foot, but it spread to other places.
I've used vinegar and baking soda (for 2-3 weeks), used Canesten cream (for 5 weeks), tea tree and coconut oil (for about
Eventually, I went to a dermatologist. I've told her that I have UC and a weak immune system (low white cell blood count) due to Imuran and that it's probably why it's not going away and even spreading. But its now obvious to me that she didn't listen to me and instead told me that it's Eczema and prescribed me a Topical corticosteroid cream (for 5 days). She also sent me to the lab to do tests. And told me to come back next week for an appointment.
The topical corticosteroid cream did decrease inflammation and remove the itch (at least some relief). A week later, tests came back positive on "rare fungal spores".
Next weeks appointment, she told me it's a combo of Eczema and fungus. So she prolonged the topical cortico cream (5 days more). And prescribed me Canesten cream for 5 days. So I protested. I told her that I already tried that for 5 freakin' weeks. She told me that I am "being negative". Which pissed me off.
Next day, I cancelled the next weeks appointment. She didn't take my situation seriously (with the weak immune system and the UC...). There's no way I am paying for these appointments.
At the pharmacy they recommended me "Whitfield's ointment". So I am currently trying with this.
Anyone ever had issues like this ? How did you solve it ?
