Hi all, I've been taking Terbinafine tablets 250mg together with terbinafine cream now for three weeks (six week course) for a scalp itching but i am yet to see any improvement. Any advise please!
Hi, I was diagnosed with Seborrhoeic Dermatitis and prescribed Ketoconazole shampoo. It did not help and made things worse. It turned out that I am allergic to an ingredient in the shampoo.
What I am saying is: Make sure that you are not allergic to anything in the cream and all other products you are using on your scalp.
Also, make sure that you indeed have a fungal infection. Did your dermatologist take a sample to ascertain that your symptoms are caused by a fungal infection?
What are your symptoms besides itching? How long did you have your symptoms? It is somewhat unusual not to see any improvement after 3 weeks of combined internal and external treatment.
