Had to return to see Dr. Gupta so she could look at my mom’s fungal infection again after my mom started developing a rash from the cream that was prescribed. Dr. Gupta said that the original infection already looked much better but that my mom somehow become infected with a different kind of yeast infection on her skin.
This time she prescribed a medicated powder thinking that my mom wasn’t keeping the area dry enough, making it easier for the infection to spread and to make sure my wasn’t reacting to the original cream. She also prescribed one antifungal tablet.
Except for the waiting (to be seen by the nurse, then by the doctor, then to get the post-exam papers) the visit went fairly quickly. Just how both doctor and patient like it.
As before, next stop…CVS (for convenience).
