Treating trichomycosis is a simple process that begins with shaving off the affected hair. Following the removal of hair, antibiotic creams, ointments, or powders may be used to help ensure that bacteria are eliminated from the area.
The antibiotic typically used is erythromycin. However, other types of antibiotics, such as clindamycin, may be used, as well as antifungal medication known as clotrimazole.
Once the infection has cleared, you can use drying powders and ammonium chloride to stop excessive sweating. This should help ensure that the infection doesn’t return.
