"Dermatology fungal scalp"

About: Moorfield Clinic / Dermatology

(as the patient),

I experienced an itching problem on my head, arms, and legs began about Summer 2013. At first I thought it was a mite attack but things didn't improve, so I went to GP who first gave me anti hystomin tablets. Different ones were prescribed and then after being given blood tests, I was referred to Kerri Ann at the dermatology clinic. When the first lot of creams didn't settle the problem, I was given a gel and hair shampoo which, after a few weeks, seemed to settle it. The itching now is only occasional. Thanks for helping.

Hi Swellands

The itching must have been really uncomfortable? Really pleased Kerry-Ann was able to help, keep up the good work.
