This is a switch. Me commenting on your article. :-)
Thank you for this article. My son was just diagnosed with tinea corporis. My doctor said it was quite obvious to her because of the uniform, quarter-sized spot.
There seems to be some "negotiating" between my pharmacist and my doctor on what was prescribed because my son is only 3 and was prescribed a medication that wasn't indicated for children under the age of 12. The pharmacist suggested that Canesten is often effective in such cases as an antifungal treatment and if that didn't work, then I should try the prescription.
