How do I get rid of ring worms and how long does it take to get rid of them and what can I use.

I still don't know what ring worms are, I need to know

My daughter got this, we believe where she worked,
as another lady at her work had it, too. She had
to go to the doc for an RX as it spread to too many spots, but the doc forgot to
tell her until the 2nd visit--do not use "antibacterial" soap while trying to clear it up--
it only makes it worse! For my daughter it took quite a while to treat. Good Luck!

So what soap should be used?

Sounds stupid but when I was a kid my grandmother would get a green blackwalnut break the hull and rub that stuff from the hull on the ring worm and it would go away! Now do not ask where to find a black walnut tree cause that I have not idea. And I am sure no pharmacist or doctor would agree but, my grandmother had some weird ways to cure stuff. Good luck,

Ring worm is a fungus and usually not hard to get rid of,your druggist can fix you right might try some tinactin if you have some around the house, it's used for athiletes foot and other rashes. Do you have any cats around the house? that may be where you got it.

When I was a young boy(many many years ago)the doctor told us to use iodine. It worked.

I have had ring worms before and I got it from a cat .Ringworms are fugis.At the vet they used a floresent looking black light since most ring worms are floresent. The best cures I,ve found are the core of a wall nut(a lime looking object with nut like core),Iodine(found at pharmacy),or cremes that treat fungis like ateletes foot such as tinactine or lamasil.
