Ringworms and how do I get rid of it

Ringworms and how do I get rid of it

If : If you're certain what you have is ringworm, rest easy. "ringworm" is otherwise known as a superficial fungal infection, no different than athlete's foot, and is easily treated using over-the-counter anti-fungal medication like lamisil, lotrimin or tinactin (tolnaftate). Use it twice a day, and it should clear up in 3-4 days. But make sure you keep using the medicine for at least a month, since fungal spores live for 30 days and don't wash out of clothing. I don't know who gave it the term "ringworm" (probably because when it occurs in places other than the foot, scalp and groin it tends to look like a red "ring), but it's a terrible name, and sounds a lot worse than it is. But unless you're quite certain it really is "ringworm, " you're always best off seeing a dermatologist to be sure. Another itchy, reddened rash that can sorta look like ringworm is scabies, and if you have scabies, you really need to treat this right to get rid of it. Good luck. Hope this helps! ...Read more
