Skin Fungus
My husband has a persistant skin fungus which his doctor has been treating with Ketoconazole.  He has been using the medication for several months and the problem will not go away.
The area which bothers him is on his back and is about the size
of a quarter. It looks like a skin rash, being red and slightly
raised.  He has been treated many times but the condition never
goes away.  He says the area gets very sore at times.  Is there any other treatment which might help him?

Doesn't sound like a fungus to me, Holly--more like a patch of eczmea.  Get a prescription for a good topical cortisone cream--bet that does the trick.

Best.
