I had a spot under my arm that looked like ringworm, so I put tinactin on it for a few weeks. It did not do anything, but get a little worse. I tried all different kinds of remedies like, bleach water, vinegar, vinegar and salt, tea tree oil, clotrimazole cream, powder spray tinactin, liquid spray tinactin, baking soda, clear nail polish, hair blow dryer. Just about everything. The tea tree oil seemed like it was helping then it got worse. It got bigger than appeared under my other under arm, a little spot on my wrist, and little oval spot on my face that you can barely see, and a big spot spreading across my lower back. It is red and itchy. And the skin flakes off every now and then. It does NOT have a whiteish center like ringworm. Went to the doctor and they said it was ringworm, but they just looked at it for about 30 seconds. Didnt really inspect it. Would like to get rid of it as natural as possible, because anitbotics mess up your gut bacteria. What is it and what should I do about it?
