As ringworm of the skin is a fungal infection, anti-fungal creams are the recommended treatment for ringworm on your body. They will attack the fungi causing your infection, allowing your skin to heal. Anti-fungals are easy for you to apply and can penetrate into your skin to relieve your symptoms.
If you are suffering from ringworm you can use a product with the active anti-fungal ingredient clotrimazole.
When should see your doctor?
If your ringworm lesions cover a large surface of your skin or you don’t see any improvement in two weeks, you should visit your doctor who will be able to provide you with the best treatment.
If you are pregnant or elderly, antifungal medication may not be suitable for you and you should make an appointment with your doctor to find out the best way to treat your ringworm.
Even if your ringworm seems like it’s clearing up, you must complete the full course of treatment to treat the infection.
