Thanks for reply, I really don't know how to get them to test for other types of fungus, I live in the rural west and drive 2 hours to a "city" for my derm appointments. They won't even take a flake and put it on a slide. How hard is that? They use a q-tip and rub it on my lip, which shows nothing.
So stupid, the doctors here. I'm not kidding. I have to beg. He told me to put triple paste on my lips at night but it turns my lips pure white due to the zinc and I can't work with white lips. If I stayed home I'd try it more than once but I don't have an office job, I see patients. There is no hiding.
