What Cream Do I Use To Treat Skin Fungal On My Shoulders
SEVERAL OTC: First, are you sure it's 'ring worm' (fungal infection)? Tinea corporis (skin fungus) is a superficial dermatophyte infection. Several over-the-counter creams are helpful but Lamisil (terbinafine) (or generic) tends to work the best due to it's cidal (fungal killing) action.

Moisturing Cream!: I would recommend using mild soaps for bathing, dove is the best. Generous application of a moisturizing cream is extremely important. I like cetaphil cream the best.

Creams may not help: A boil is a collection of pus under the skin. Most of the time, they either come to a head and drain all by themselves, or a doctor needs to lance it (a procedure called I&D, or Incision and Drainage) for it to go away. Sometimes if there's lots of redness and pain around it you also need antibiotic pills. This is especially important if you have a fever. Please see a doctor as soon as you can. ...Read more
