Ringworm is actually a common skin issue and is not actually related to a worm. It can be treated with antifungal creams or ointments, which can be found over the counter. When you are using these ointments, you must first make sure that you wash the rash well with soap and water.
After you wash the rash, make sure that it is dried carefully before applying the cream. If there are any blistered sores, you may want to create a compress to help soothe and dry them out. Compresses made with Burow’s solution are the best option. This is available over the counter without a prescription as well.
When applying the cream, you should apply it a bit further than the edge of the rash. You should also make sure that you follow all the instructions on the package of the cream that you have chosen. This treatment should be continued for two to four weeks.
If you do not begin to notice any changes after the first two weeks, you should contact your doctor. You should also be certain that you are also treating athlete’s foot at the same time if it is present. This will help to ensure that you will not become infected again after the infection is cleared up the first time.Homemade Treatment for My Child's Ringworm,
