How to get rid of ringworm on exposed skin:

When people ask how to get rid of ringworm, usually the doctor will prescribe a topical antifungal agent, such as Miconazole, Terbinafine, Clotrimazole, Ketoconazole, or Tolnaftate. Ringworm cures can also be given orally if the topical agents don’t work. But thankfully, usually the topical agents are usually good enough to get rid of ringworm on the skin.

We recommend you use All Stop Medicated Skin Cream. It protects and soothes skin that is irritated by ringworm, athlete’s foot, fungus, skin parasites and other microbes. We have found a good deal for an 8 oz bottle on Amazon.com.

Further recommendations for ringworm on the groin

In addition to Tinactin Cream, people with ringworm on the groin should change underwear daily (more frequently if area is sweaty). Also, make sure to shower and clean area every day.
 

How to get rid of ringworm on the scalp:

Unfortunately, ringworms on the scalp are harder to get rid of then on exposed skin. The reason for this is because heat and moisture are trapped between the hairs and scalp, allowing the perfect location for fungus to grow. Furthermore, it is harder to clean the scalp due to hair follicles, and therefore some spores may escape the treatment. For this treatment, an antifungal shampoo should be used to stop the growth of the infection, and you should contact you doctor. He/she will likely prescribe some oral antifungal medications in addition to your anti-fungal shampoo. The combination of the two will most likely get rid of ringworm on the scalp.

The shampoo we recommend is Nizoral anti dandruff shampoo. This is an anti-fungal shampoo, that will help kill the fungus associated with scaling and dandruff. Its pleasant to use, has a nice fresh, clean scent, foams into a nice thick, rich lather, and is pH balanced. Don’t forget to use this shampoo only once per week.
