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.

Does tinactin foot spray work?

Lamisil

Extremity-lower-foot
Tinactin and Lotrimine are both fungualstatic medication so they keep it from reproducing but Lamisil is actually a fungualcidal medication, actually killing the fungus. Lamisil medication was a prescription medication 15 years ago. Spend the extra money and make progress without question.
