It is usually diagnosed with a scraping of the skin and can be treated with topical medications if on the skin, or oral medicines if involving ...Read more

Still possible.: Could still be it. Could be something else as well. Unless you are immunocompromised a topical anti fungal such as terbinafine or miconazole should work well. Talk with your local pharmacist and use as directed. ...Read more

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

Hi I'm African American and I have ringworm on my forehead I've used salt and vinegar to treat it and its left the area discoloured how can I treat it?

Wrong question: "Ringworm" is not a medical term. Fungus??? Are you sure??? How did it get there? From an animal or person? Effective therapy depends on exact diagnosis. "Discolored"??? Darker or lighter? Red? ...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
