Default Ring worm

I am not positive but I am pretty sure my daughter has developed a good case
of ring worm. I took a picture if anyone wants to see it to help me verify
this. Anyway does anyone know of how to treat ring worm? I just have no
idea. I know you can use a cream but i am not sure what one to use. I
guess I should call my mom and see if my nephew has it is well. *sigh*

It's a fungus so I'd think you need some type of anti-fungal cream. I'd call
your ped.

Default Ring worm

I called and they gave me a big list of stuff to use. My mom said it was
the same stuff that treats athletes foot so luckily we had some cream laying
around for it. We even have stuff in a pump that says it treats ring worm!
That is handy.

Going to a physician will be helpful , because
they can scrape one of the lesions , examine the scraping, and determine
exactly what kind of fungus is causing it. Not all antifungal treatments
will cure every kind of fungus.
So, if what you're trying doesn't work, see the doctor!

I was hoping the nurse would say to come in when I called since they ALWAYS
want to see you and I got the one nurse that just said to get an over the
counter thing. It can take up to a month to clear up so I need to mark on
the calender when I started treatment. I have a picture of it so I can tell
if it gets better or worse.

As a parent who's been through this, I can tell you that ringworm can be very
stubborn. If it is on your child's face or neck, you really need to see a
doctor. If it spreads to his/her hair, it will be much harder to treat. My
daughter needed to take an oral medication to rid herself of it and it took
several months. Good luck!

Definitely try to keep it away from her head!! My son came down with
ringworm on his head shortly after school started last year (he may have
contracted it at camp but we didn't notice it much until a large patch of
his hair fell out just in time for a family wedding!). From what I've read,
though, different ringworm fungi are specifically targeted to different
parts of the body.

First the ped prescribed a topical medication. That didn't work, so he
prescribed an oral medication for two weeks. That worked a little but not
completely so he was put on an even stronger one (lamisil) by the
dermatologist and that worked a little but not completely, too. Finally
what worked what an older medication (griveofulsin sp?) that he had to take
for six weeks. It seems to have worked, he's been off of it for about three
months now. All told, from the time we noticed it until the time he
finished the last medication: six months. FWIW, no one else in our house
ever came down with any ringworm from him. Some people are just more prone
to fungal infections, I guess.
