Oxistat did not work on my skin condition.

If the skin infection is fungal, there are an abundance of choices such as corticosteroids and antifungal pills. Other topical treatments can be Tinactin, Lotrimin, Micatin, Nizoral, Exelderm, Naftin or Lamisil.

Oxistat is used to treat fungal infections. If the topical cream does not work then you should see a doctor and they can write you a prescription for an oral anti-fungal. Some doctors prescribe a batroban cream to use with the Oxistat. One of these would be Murpirocin 2%. You might also need an oral antibiotic.

This medication is an antifungal for use on the skin. It is used to treat skin infections such as athlete's foot, jock itch and ring worm. Check container for expiration date and discard any unused medication after that date. If does not improve or becomes worse notify your doctor.

If a topical cream did not cure your skin problem, you might need to try an oral medication that treats fungal skin conditions. There are anti-fungal agents prescribed by doctors like the broad spectrum Sporanox, or Diflucan, if the problem is caused by candiasis, or Nizoral, which is usually prescribed when the other oral medications do not work.
