Can our immune system fight off ringworm infection on our bodies without getting any treatment?If so, how long?1-2 months?

Maybe: Ringworm may or may not remit in weeks or months. In the meantime, treatment is utterly banal -- almost any cheap, safe topical fungicide will do the trick in a few days. For the sake of your co-workers, any romantic partners, and yourself -- take care of your ringworm like a 21st century gentleman. ...Read more

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

I have a bad ringworm infection and the only thing that seems to work is an anti fungal coupled with a steroid. Safe to use while breast feeding?

Talk to Doctor: Many antifungal medications and steroids are safe to take during pregnancy. To be absolutely sure you should consult your doctor who can cross reference a recent database of medications and the breastfeeding safety classification; ringworm on the scalp or tinea capitis generally does not improve with topical antifungals alone; an oral medication is the best shot at complete resolution. ...Read more
