In brief: Tinea capitis

If the fungal infection is more widespread and deeper, you may need to take oral antifungals.
I have found that for tinea capitis topical antifungals usually do not help and so i usually tend to prescribe oral antifungal instead of wasting time during which time the infection will spread further.
