Can I use Selsun blue on ringworm?

Probably won't work

Ringworm
It probably won't be very effective. It can work for tinea versicolor, but is less likely to work for tinea corporis (ringworm), which requires topical or oral antifungal agents.

How can I cure/get rid of tinea versicolor...have used selsun blue...taken perscribed pills by dermatologists...nothing works..help!!?

Persistence

Selsun
Tinea versicolor takes time to clear & often recurs. Perhaps prescription strength selenium sulfide lotion (2.5%) applied for 10 minutes daily for 7 days will work better than OTC Selsun Blue (due to higher concentration of active ingredient). Washing clothing , bedding, bath linens (or perhaps using an ultraviolet wand) to destroy the fungus will speed recovery.
