Large Ringworm Outbreak

I first encountered this infection in my ball sack area where i had a single patch that started to slowly spread. After going to my GP and applying the daktocrem he prescribed me it seemed to fade and not show. Recently I took the time to check myself and I have found that I can see very faint patches over my torso, shoulders, neck and face. I have applied the cream again after realizing this but I'm sure that I may need something else.

Re: Large Ringworm Outbreak

You might ask your doctor for an short term oral antifungal treatment such as Diflucan.

Another thing to think about, many times ringworm is associated with a decreased immune system.
