What are the best ringworm treatments?

My daughter came home from school with ringworm.

You will need to go for the doctor for treatment. Your doctor will be able to prescribe medication to get rid of the ringworm. It works pretty much the same as when a pet has worms.

Any type of Athletes Foot cream. Put it on the ringworm 3 times a day and it should be gone in 2-3 weeks. A quick way to get rid of it is to put Nail Polish over the ringworm for a whole day and than rip it off or use nail polish remover.

My son came home from daycare with ringworm. His pediatrician recommended a topical antifungal treatment to start out with. We tried terbinafine, which is a Lamisil cream and solution. It can be pruchased at an supercenter or drugstore.

Making an appointment with a doctor is the best way to take care of ringworm. However, it is not always affordable. From experience, you can use a couple drops of iodine daily on the affected area until it goes away. Dermisil has also been highly recommended for treatment of ringworm.
