Hey guys,

For a few months I have been dealing with a weird non itchy armpit rash mostly on my left side. Went to the Doctor back in April and she prescribed me some anti-fungal cream. I am usually very weary of medicine so I put it off as the rash would disappear and reappear. I finally picked it up in July and have been using it for a month. Doctor said it could take up to 10 weeks to resolve.

I don't have any other symptoms and she ran a full lab test on me. Everything looked good to her.

This morning the rash was pretty bad and just got the best of my anxiety.

Really just hoping for support to keep going and realize I am not dying. LOL.

Fungal infections are usually difficult to get rid of...and take time, even with the use of medication.

So, since you are not even at the half way mark of what your doctor said you could expect for everything clearing up...

...I think you should not worry at this point, and know that you are on track for healing. smile

Use your coping skills and positive mantras when the anxious thoughts act up!
