I don't konw what else to do. could it be dangerous. can some one help. thanks,
A short while ago several children that went to a daycare caught a fuungus infection. They tried to treat the infection with topical medications. It took steroids, a medication named Griseofulvin and a shampoo/body wash named ketoconazole 2%.
I am not sure this will help, but contact a dermatologist and ask about this method. The topical creams seemed to only feed the problem, not cure it.
