how to get rid of ringworm

1 Answer:

Hi Roberto,

Ringworm is a skin disease caused by a fungal infection. Signs on the skin in the form of a reddish rash with firm boundaries at the edges, especially located in areas that are moist or easy to sweat, such as the groin or back with the main symptom of itching. Currently, there are many anti-fungal skin ointments to treat ringworm that are sold over the counter, however, to ensure that the skin rash you are referring to is ringworm, it is advisable to check with your doctor first to confirm the diagnosis so that there is no medication error. , because often many skin rashes are similar in shape but the underlying cause is not the same so the treatment is different. In addition, in cases where ringworm is quite widespread, antifungal drugs are often required in the form of tablets/capsules taken by mouth which require a prescription from a doctor and cannot be purchased over the counter.

In the meantime, make sure to keep the area with the rash clean and dry, shower twice a day, change clothes when sweating, wear clothes that absorb sweat and are not too tight, and avoid scratching the rash to prevent secondary infection.
