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.

"Answer_4:" id="Answer_4:">Answer 4:

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

polish! (:

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.
