What really makes ringworm go away? Ive tried everything, clotrimazole,tolnaftate,miconazole nitrate creams & terbinafine hcl pills & its still here

Lamisil/Hydrocortiso

Lamisil
Use Lamisil and apply to infected and normal skin 2 cm beyond affected area each day for a period of one month. The first week pair this with hydrocortisone 1% daily. If this fails to resolve the problem then best to be seen to consider other causes. You may need an oral antifungal if the topical regimen fails and the lesion is determined to truly be ringworm. Hope this helps.

Regarding lotrimin, lamisil and micatin, which works for treating a scalp fungus?

Oral lamisil

Miconazole
Scalp funGus requires oral medications because the fungus is in the hair follicle and topical medications will not reach into the hair shaft.

Of the three, lotrimin, lamisil and micatin, which is the best for treating scalp fungus?

Tinea capitis

Dandruff
If the fungal infection is more widespread and deeper, you may need to take oral antifungals. I have found that for tinea capitis topical antifungals usually do not help and so I usually tend to prescribe oral antifungal instead of wasting time during which time the infection will spread further.
