I am not sure but i think i could ringworm infection during contact with my boyfriend as he had it. Currently i am using ketoconazole lition. Is it good to cure ringworm around vagina? Or can you some medicine available in india for the same.
Maybe not ringworm: There are several kinds of superficial fungal and yeast infections, and ringworm is one of them. However, ringworm rarely involves the genital area. Rather than self diagnosis and self treatment, I recommend you stop the ketoconazole cream and see your doctor. Or ideally, you and your partner see a doctor together for treatment recommendations. Good luck. ...Read more
He has ring worm only after coming to USA from India. it becomes a big circle day by day. What to do?
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.

"ringworm"?: First, get a diagnosis. "Ringworm" is not a medical term. Usually it refers to tinea corporis. which is a skin fungus. MOST of the time such a diagnosis is wrong. If it is not fungus, fluconazole will not be effective. Tinea corporis is transmitted from a cat or another person. There are several treatments. Fluconazole may help but is not usually the best choice. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If in doubt, see your doctor to determine if a prescription for an anti-fungal pill is right for you. ...Read more
Tinea corporis: Tinea corporis (ringworm) is a fungal infection of the skin generally characterized (intially) by a red raised round patch, followed by central clearing and an advancing border.

No No No No No: Clobetasol is one of the strongest topical cortisones we have. It will suppress the body's normal inflammatory response to the fungus infection, make the skin look less red, but will also let the fungus grow better, so that when you stop the clobetasol, the fungus will be worse than before. ...Read more
PIPA: Geofridge, you probably have pigment in the dermis from chronic inflammation caused by the fungus, referred to by dermatologists/ dermatopathologists as post inflammatory pigmentary alteration or PIPA.

I developed 3 sores on my scalp. I'm wondering if its ringworm. And if so how do I remove it? Could this be related to an STD?
Needs eval/no: If it is scalp ringworm (fungus) it finds its way deep into the roots of the hair. This prevents any of the over the counter anti-fungals from eradicating it. Often it takes a prescription med taken for a month or more for a cure. None of the common STDs present with a scalp lesion although syphilis is known for its ability to show up in odd sites/presentations. ...Read more
