1 Answer:

Hi,


Thanks for your question. Ringworm, known as tinea in medical words, is a skin infection caused by fungus. It can occur anywhere in your body. The infection causes the appearance of red patch or bump which forms round ring at the edge of the lesion over time. This skin lesion is itchy. This skin infection can be transmitted through contact with another person who has similar condition, from your pet, from contact with object that is contaminated with fungus, or from contact with soil.


If you have ringworm, this condition will take sometime to heal. You can try over-the-counter antifungal cream and generally this cream should be used for 2-4 weeks. You are not recommended to change cream for so many times. If after trying the same antifungal cream for 2 weeks, there is no significant improvement. you are strongly recommended to have a medical consultation. Doctor needs to examine the skin lesion and decide what treatment is best for you. You might be precribed with antifungal tablet if the antifungal cream does not wokr. Avoid using the medication without doctor's instructions.


Please follow the general recommendation below:

keep the skin area clean and dry
avoid scratching the lesion
avoid wearing ill-fitting pants
change your underwear and socks at least daily
avoid being in a humid environment
avoid sharing towel or clothes with other person

I hope this information helps.
