How Can I Remove Ringworm On My Thigh
Topical anti-fungal: Ringworm is actually a fungal skin infection- not a parasitic infection. Therefore, depending on the size and extent of the infection, one can first try an over-the-counter anti-fungal creme. If in doubt, see your doctor to determine if a prescription for an anti-fungal pill is right for you. ...Read more
Trichophyton is one of the common types of fungus that can infect the skin, called a "dermatophyte". It can cause ringworm of the skin (such as athlete's foot or jock itch) or of the scalp. It is usually diagnosed with a scraping of the skin and can be treated with topical medications if on the skin, or oral medicines if involving ...Read more
Are they blackheads?: Look at an internet image of keratosis pilaris. It might be that this is the condition you have. It will help to have more info about where they are located, whether you also have similar rash on the back of your upper arms and/or cheeks (face). If they really are blackheads, buying some benzoyl peroxide cream or gel and applying that 1-2 x per day after washing well with an acne wash can help. ...Read more
Topical antifungals: Apply a topical antifungal treatment that you can buy over the counter to the involved skin several times a day for 2 to 4 weeks until 1 week after the rash has resolved. You can use the same treatments that are advertised for athlete's foot in the drug stores. They can contain terbinafine, miconazole, Clotrimazole or another azole. ...Read more

Blocked duct: By blister, I am going to assume a bubble on your inner lip. It is most likely a pinched off saliva gland with the exit blocked. Increasing your saliva flow may reopen it. You can do that with sugarless sour hard candy. If things don't improve in a few days get it checked because there are other possibilities. ...Read more
Warm compress: Apply warm compresses 3 to 4 times a day and it will come to a head and open up on its own or you may have to see a medical practitioner to have it drained. If it comes very often,avoid shaving your armpit and make sure you are not reacting to your deodorant. If no relief see a surgeon./dermatologist ...Read more
Big picture: The key is long-term acne control. If topical benzoyl peroxid has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician.
