I think I have ringworm but I'm not sure. It's on the front of my neck. It looks like pictures I've seen but isn't itchy and not very scaly.
Pls gve me advise to get rid of ringworm on my skin and nail! Pls see my profile picture for reference. Have duracan and elica m cream gven by derma.
Do what derma says.: Duracan is an antifungal that can be used to treat ringworm. The elica m cream contains another antifungal as well as a steroid. This antifungal treats the ringworm, and the steroid just helps the ringworm be less red and itchy. There are lots of ways to treat ringworm. It is harder to kill fungus on nails so be sure to follow up with your dermatologist whenever you're supposed to go back. ...Read more

What do you think i have? My scalp looks like the gray patch ringworm at times there has been sores like a rash or a pimple. Also, black little nits like a fruit fly maybe? I feel itchy with scalp, hair feels different like it is nappy in spots, also hard
From : From your description, you may have ringworm of the scalp which is actually caused by a fungus, not a worm. Of course, without examining you and sending cultures, I cannot tell for sure what it is. A fungal infection of the scalp is more difficult to treat than fungal infections elsewhere. Treatment usually includes 1-2 months of a prescription oral medication. You should give your doctor a call and have them take a look at it. They will hopefully be able to tell exactly what it is so you can get the proper treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

The disease occurs in about 1 out of 400 black (racial) Americans, and 1 out of 16,000 Hispanic (ethnic) Americans. ...Read more

Many theories: HIV infection is high in African Americans (AA) likely for many reasons. Some suggest that it is lack of knowledge about HIV/poor access to medical care and HIV testing. Others suggest that the stigma of having HIV and issues of homophobia within the AA community have kept people 'in the closet' or 'on the down low' and not willing to get tested or disclose to friends/family that they are HIV+. ...Read more
