Seconded, but you don't really need to see a doctor. Get a Lamisil anti fungal. I find that the Continuous Spray kind works best, but the creams are good too as long s you can reach all of your spots with it, but I still think that the spray works best.

I would not use the powder sprays, they are annoying, smelly and cover poorly.

The active ingredient in Lamisil has proven much more effective for me personally than that in Lotrimin, but both do work, Lotrimin just takes longer.

I was diagnosed with this condition back when the current active ingredient concentration was still prescription only. Now that it's available over the counter, I have found that the continuous spray works just as well as the script ever did.

FWIW my doctor told me it was something I would always have to deal with occasionally and that some people "were genetically predisposed to an overgrowth of this naturally occurring fungus."

I also found that this sunscreen has gotten rid of my spots too, which was surprising.

I have the same problem. Went to the doctor and they prescribed me some stuff for UTI, STIs, etc., but nothing helped. Just ordered anti-fungus cream, so I'm hoping that helps. Might try that. Available on Amazon, Walmart, and most other stores. Someone else on Reddit recommended this one (Lotrimin):

If you don't want to use the link (sometimes I don't trust links either), just type in "Lotrimin" in at Amazon or Walmart. Hope that helps. :)

Pal who wrote the loooong post about malassezia suggested using DOGGIE WIPES on your face cause they have ketoconazole in them. The Nizoral shampoo has the same active and has been the most effective thing I've tried so far for my bumps. Is this absolutely insane or worth a shot? I've been looking for an alternative to the shampoo cause it's so drying, but cannot find a cream with ketoconazole. I may try another anti-fungal product but I'm scared it will not be as effective. Here's a link to the doggie wipes.

Just for funsies, here's a link to the cream I'm considering. Any opinions/guidance on this is appreciated. Thanks!! ✨

This looks like tinea. Treat with topical antifungal twice daily for 7 to 10 days. Keep the area very dry - perhaps with an antifungal powder after showering and changing clothes if it becomes moist - to keep it away.

What am I to do about sweating? I work out every week and usually end up sweating for an hour or two straight.

I've been using this spray:

jock itch is fungal, which thrives in moist environments. after you shower, dry the affected region completely, and apply Zeasorb AF, which kills jock itch fungus (as well as athlete's foot fungus.)
