Liver Spots Treatment
Question by Nikki: HELP I can’t get rid of ring worm!!!?
Ok it has been about 2 months now that I have had this RING WORM. I started the treatment with a over the counter anti-fungal, didn’t work. I called my doctor and she called me in a perscription that is a anti fungal and steroid cream mix called “Clotrimazole and Betameethasone” Keep in mind I am a very clean person, I have cleaned my sheets every other day. Washing clothing and towels after one use etc. Ok so I started using the cream perscribed, did seem to help the 6 spots that I had at the time, although new ones were accumlating. I just made sure I was constintly putting the cream on all day on all spots.
Well all of a sudden it was like the spots that dried up came back with like 1-2 small blister things. Strange!! Also I called the doctor made a appt. this time. Went in to see her and she was saying she wesn’t so sure it was ring worm. At this time I had about 10 spots. She was wasnt sure what it may be. So she ended up deciding it must be ring worm and she now perscribed me a oral anti-fungal called “Fluconazole” I only got one pill that day and went back a week later to the pharmacy to get a refill for another one. Apparently They can only perscribe one at a time because it can be very bad for your liver if you don’t wait seven days for the second dose etc. SO needless to say it has been 3 days since I took the second pill and OH MY GOD! I noticed two more new rings on my arm yesterday! I am so nervous and scared!! The other spots are still there too they just dont itch or look as bad anymore. What is happening to me? Anyone experiance this before? any information about this would be super helpful. I go back to the doctors thursday!
Oh and I beleive i got this from my new kittens, although they have been to the vet and he didnt see anything, but he did say they could still b carriers in the fur or something. But he said it goes away on its own.. I dont know what to beleive about that either…Help

Prevention & Treatment for Ringworm
Questions or suggestions? Check out our Personal Hygiene Forum.
This should be obvious, but if you don’t want to get ringworm, don’t share personal items. Keep your towels, socks, underwear, and other unmentionables to yourself. This of course bars the use of towels as whips in the shower. I know that you may be thinking, “But, Jonathan, I really like running around naked in public showers whipping unsuspecting strangers on their butts with a wet towel.” If this is the case, then perhaps its time you took that big step and visited a highway rest area one of these nights.
Keep cool, dry, and clean to avoid a ringworm infection. Yes, because it’s a fungal infection, ringworm can be avoided by staying clean and dry. Don’t wear heavy clothing that doesn’t breathe well for very long, and whatever you do, don’t forget to wear flip-flops in the shower if you live in a dormatory. Ringworm thrives in warm, humid places, so it’s best to avoid them or at least protect yourself if you can’t avoid them. Oh, and wash your hands!
Lamisil is a common antifungal cream used to get rid of ringworm. You’ve seen the commercials. Thank the lord we have things like antifungal creams. As I mentioned before, ringworm, or the fungus that causes it, is quite closely related to athlete’s foot. Thus, anything that will cure the tinea that causes athlete’s foot should cure your average ringworm infection.
Monistat-Derm is another common antifungal topical lotion used to cure ringworm. Unbeknownst to a majority of men, Monistat isn’t just for vaginas anymore. Monistat actually makes a pretty good antifungal skin cream that can help wipe out a ringworm infection in less than three weeks. It is suggested that any over-the-counter topical antifungal medicine be applied to the rash 2 times a day for at least 3 weeks to ensure adequate treatment.
I don’t know if I’d do this, but apparently spreading bleach over a ringworm infection with a Q-tip is a common treatment. Quite a few people I’ve talked to say that using bleach on a ringworm infection will clear it right up. The problem is, you’ll get two different descriptions of what it feels like to put bleach on a skin infection; you’ll either hear that it “sort of stings,” or that it “really, really strings.” Wrestlers who don’t have time for creams and ointments swear by this method. Of course, that might have been the concussions talking.
