hello, im 50 yrs of age a woman and i just had a KOH recently because my cheeks is itching. Result was positive for fungal spores and my derma give me 4 kinds of ointment named precirex but different in numbers. Apply two ointment for morning and two at night. The itching was gone and she said i should apply this only for one week. She also give me lamisil tablet 250 mg once a day for 15 days. I almost got horrible when i know the price of this lamisil it cost less than a 200 pesos each. My question is do i need to take this tablet? Is there a fungal spores on face? Where did i get this fungal. Also I add I had a keratosis pilaris on my back and i used SSA clobetasol and wrap it with plastic im tired of applying it everytime, but it doesnt work or it appear over and over again.
