What do you suggest if my son is taking the growth hormone drug, norditropin, (human growth hormone) and after 3 months is getting ringworm constantly.?

Likely unrelated: The side effect profile of growth hormone includes dry skin and rash, but susceptibility to ringworm is not related to use of growth hormone.

Some forms of eczema look a lot like ringworm! See your doc for definitive answers. ...Read more

Will using norditropin (human growth hormone) make a teenager grow taller?

It may push him to his genetic max sooner at a cost in excess of 10K/yr. ...Read more
