    Good morning Madam. Sorry about that. When did you first notice this? If it's not from the soap, it may be from the water. You can try using water from another source to be sure of this. Meantime you can take tab loratadine 10mg once daily for 5days for the itching. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for choosing kangpe

    Ok madam. Please when did you first notice this? How soon after bathing does the itching start and when does it stop? Do you have rashes on your body? Did you change environment prior to this?

    Ok. Sorry about that. You can take cetirizine tab 10mg with prednisone 5mg once daily for about 5days. This is this cream you can use that will help with the itching as well. It's called Benadryl cream. Use after bathing. Please let me know how it goes. Take care

    Hello. No it's not safe to take whole pregnant. It's good you mentioned it. It would advise you to talk to your obstetrician about this condition. You may do some tests to rule out causes. Appropriate drugs would be prescribed for you. Take care

    good afternoon, I am 19 weeks pregnant and I usually feel like a mild blow in my tummy,it isn't painful though, I hope it is normal

    Good afternoon. Sorry about that. Is this your first pregnancy? The blows you feel are most likely due to the movement of your developing baby. This is know as quickening

    Yes. Don't bother yourself about it unless it's painful. It's a sign your baby is alive and active. Take care

    Good afternoon. Athletic foot is a fungal infection so you can treat it by using antifungal cream and also ensure to avoid dampness around your feet by always keeping your feet dry. Take care

    yes I've used ketoconazole tube for over a month and I always clean it to avoid being damp,but no result
    Dr. Tomiwa A answered:

    You said it comes and goes so probably when it goes you don't practise the regular drying of your feet. You should ketoconazole cream and ensure your feet are clean and dry. Avoid putting your feet in dirty water. Check your fasting blood sugar to rule out diabetes.
