Anonymous Patient Answer

What are the signs of tinea cruris?

On clinical grounds, patients should be asked if they are suffering from scaling of their palms and soles and, if so, what are the signs, symptoms, and duration of the condition. These signs are a form of hyperkeratosis. The key question here is to ascertain whether the patient has a systemic disease (tinea, scabies, yaws or leprosy). Patients with chronic scaling may be at increased risk of hyperkeratosis due to their increased exposure to the skin.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Can tinea cruris be cured?

Tinea cruris was seen to have a cure rate of 96.4% after a single dose of oral griseofulvin therapy. This is the first study to describe cure rates as high as that and longer than the standard three-week course of griseofulvin to date. However, a longer course of griseofulvin may be associated with significant adverse effects. Although griseofulvin is a very effective and safe therapy, the cost of the drug and the potential for significant adverse effects make the use of griseofulvin in the long term clinically implausible.

What causes tinea cruris?

Who should consider clinical trials for tinea cruris?

Patients diagnosed with tinea cruris should be treated by a physician, preferably with at least a three-week course of topical minocycline. These patients should also be instructed about other treatments, particularly topical treatments, and instructed to follow-up with physicians with whom they are regularly scheduled to see for another evaluation about one and two years later. Once their warts go away, they should not try to treat them with drugs that would harm them (such as benzoyl penicillin) and should not return to get a cure because they might get a new infection.
