Question: Fungus cream


 JackReal - Wed Jan 03, 2007 9:18 am

Hi

In 1998, I received a prescription for fungus treatment. The name of the product on the prescription is "Magistrale" which I think means a combinaison of medications. They were not able at the drug store to tell me what were the medications used because they keep the record only for 3-5 years. The DIN number is 00999822. I also have the prescription number if this can help. Anyone can find out what medications were used for the preparation of that cream with the DIN number ?

Thanks,

Jack Real.

User avatar Hello,

I have searched for any similar names, I could not find any.
I am sorry I can not help you for that.

From your previous posts, I knew that you are on antifungal treatment and it was working well. Why you are searching for that one.

Follow up with your Doctor is essential.
Keep us updated.
Best regard.

Hi Safaa

Thanks for the answer. The nystatin did improve things the first 2 weeks but I have no progress in the last week and now things are getting worst. Maybe it's a different type of Fungus than what I had in 1996 and in 1998 but I'm a bit surprised that back then, I was given a presciption that was mixed at the drug store and now, in 2006, I'm given something that is available over the counter.

Tomorrow, I will go at the Infectious Disease Clinic to get some bood test. Hopefully, they will be able to confirm if I have Candida and wich type it is; Albicans or other. I'm not a doctor but I have those fungus since September and I really feel I'm being under treated with too many delays and too little medication.

We'll see.
