I've been taking sopranox for 4 days and using lamisil (terbinafine) cream for 5 days, how come my ringworm is still spreading?

Is really ringworm?: Is it really ringworm? I don't want to doubt your doc's expertise, but skin conditions are frequently misdiagnosed. Although, it may be a little too early to expect major improvement from the treatment you're getting for your "ringworm", at least i would not expect it to be spreading.
