Re: Ringworm how long till you should see some improvement?

Usually, the ringworm should clear up fairly quickly with treatment.

Years ago, I got ringworm that lasted for a couple months. (Long itchy months). Turns out that one of the other medications I take was counteracting my ringworm treatment. Once I went off that medication, it cleared up on less than a week.

If it doesn't clear up in the next week, I would go back to the doctor.

Re: Ringworm how long till you should see some improvement?

I use to get ringworms as a kid when I would go swimming. My aunt told me as soon as you see a ring worm forming (looks like little bumps in a circle) put some clear finger nail polish on it. The last time I got one was when I was living in a dorm room about 5 years ago and I remmber the advice my aunt gave me and applied clear finger nail polish on it everday and it completetly cleared up by the end of the week. Not sure why or how this works but it does??!!

Try the clear finger nail polish or dab tree tea oil on the area several times a day.

Both work within just a few days.
