  • Looks like it to me. If you have it across your abdomen or chest, look up pityriasis rosea. You can lessen the effects if you go to a doc within 72 hours. Anyway, back to ringworm. These are some meds for it. CICLOPIROX-TOPICAL CREAM, Loproxclotrimazole and betamethasone dipropionate, Lotrisoneclotrimazole, Lotrimin, Mycelexfluconazole, Diflucanitraconazole, Sporanoxketoconazole, Nizoralmiconazole, Monistat; Femizol; Vagistat; M–Zole; Micatin; Lotriminnaftifine-topical, Naftinoxiconazole nitrate-topical, OxistatTERBINAFINE SOLUTION-TOPICAL, Lamisilterbinafine, LamisilTERBINAFINE-TOPICAL CREAM, Lamisiltriacetin-topical cream, solutiontriacetin-topical spraytriacetin-topical tincture

  • My son suffers from ringworm. We tried every single prescription available and he just kept getting more. I did research on home remedies. Tea tree oil (available at Walmart) is the only thing that has worked. After 3 weeks, 1 is completely gone, other 5 are almost gone and no more have appeared. Just apply the oil twice a day.
