Fungal skin infections

FORT LEE, VA (WWBT) - Dr. Christopher Marshall is treating fungal skin infections at Family Health Clinic at the Crossings.

The symptoms include red, irritated skin under arms, in groin, on feet, or under folds of skin.  It may be painful or simply very itchy.

Medicated powders and anti-fungal creams are available over the counter and are generally effective but often take some time to work so be patient and stick with it.

If a rash is especially inflamed or painful you may need a prescription product.
