Does clear nail polish get rid of ringworm?
.Yes it does i have had one and i used clear finger nail polish.
The term "ringworm" refers to fungal infections that are on the
surface of the skin
Ringworm can be treated -topically (with external applications)
-or systemically (for example, with oral medications)
-Topical treatment: When fungus affects the skin of the body or
the groin, many antifungal creams can clear the condition in two
weeks or so. Examples of such preparations include those that
contain clotrimazole (Cruex cream, Desenex cream, Lotrimin cream,
lotion, and solution), miconazole (Monistat-Derm cream),
ketoconazole (Nizoral cream); and terbinafine (Lamisil cream and
solution). These treatments are effective for many cases of foot
fungus as well.
-For a long time, the only effective antifungal tablet was
griseofulvin (Fulvicin, Grifulvin, and Gris-PEG). In recent years,
newer agents have been introduced that are both safer and more
effective. These include terbinafine (Lamisil), itraconazole
(Sporanox), and fluconazole (Diflucan). Reputations die hard,
however, and many people continue to fear that even these newer
agents are "bad for the liver," when in fact they are quite safe
when used properly.
The 1st answer was wrong - application of nail polish does not cure
ringworm. the second made no attempt to answer the question =- that
person should learn to read.
No nail polish does not cure ringworm. the second persons answer
was to inform the person asking, about antifungal agents. if your
not sure about using them try home remedy of apple cider
vinegar(with water 1:1 ratio) or colloidal silver which has natural
healing agents and silver and fungus don't get along, it kills off
the fungus in other words and does work.
I have recently had ringworm which i had got from my brother and
the cream for my brother never seemed to work so i looked on the
computer for faster cures because i didn't want this ugly ring on
my leg and used nail polish and on the next day it was already
fading and by day 3 it was pretty much gone. So you can use nail
My brother has ringworm and we are going to see if putting clear
nail polish really does help. I hope it does because my little
brother is really scared.
