How do you feel about the use of Novasone Lotion % used daily by a female under the fingernails? My wife has a fungal infection (rather like “barmaids rot”) under her nails and has been prescribed the above lotion to use for about six months.
Nothing previously prescribed has been successful and I am a little concerned about corticosteroids being prescribed (by a skin specialist) for such a long period.
If you are in favour of its use, what important precautions should be adhered to and what must she avoid doing or what should she do?
Well, since no one’s answered and I have dealt with this the past month I’ll tell ya what I do. Take a shower, dry everything down there good then apply baby powder. I’m a bigger girl and I wear scrubs for work so I get some soft gauze and place it where my panty lines would go and change if it gets wet. If the rash is really burning or hurting I use nystatin powder (it’s RX only). If she gets the under boob rash, I tape gauze over my boo boos where my sports bra rubs until it’s better. She could even do power on gauze taped to the thighs until they heal. One major mistake I made, I have pcos so naturally I have more candida in my system and I bought summers eve powder. Whoa nelly, made it 10 times worse. It has corn starch and if there is any chance you have candida or yeast present never use starches bc it feeds the rash. Hope this helps.
The Telekom Affair – In May 2007, several former riders admitted to using banned substances (including EPO ) while riding for the team in the mid-1990s, including Erik Zabel , Rolf Aldag , Brian Holm ,  Bjarne Riis ,  Bert Dietz , Udo Bölts and Christian Henn including the seasons in which Riis and Jan Ullrich won the Tour de France.  Team doctors Andreas Schmid and Lothar Heinrich also confessed to participating and administering banned substances. The latter was Team Telekom's sporting director until 3 May 2007, when he was suspended following allegations published in former team member Jef d'Hont 's book.
