Our boy got a round sore on his arm over a month ago. It was raised and red and we thought it was the fungal ringworm and so did the pharmacist.
We applied Hydrozole (anti fungal & inflammatory cream) on it for 7 days (the sore improved) then followed (as directed on the pack) with Clonea cream but the sore then got worse. So we took him to the doctor. He said he thought it was a reaction to an insect bite and to continue with Hydrozole until it got better and then gradually stop applying it.
We did this and a week later, when I started applying the cream once a day instead of twice, it got worse again and started spreading...
Back to the doctor. He prescribed Lamisil. But on the pack it says not for kids under the age of TWELVE. Our boy is TWO.... AAAAAAHRG!
Any thoughts? Trust the doctor and keep applying the cream even though the pack says not to?
