Ringworm that wont go away

I have had ringworm on me for over a month and nothing I have tried has worked. I wen't to the doctor and he proscribed a oral anti-fungal... but the issue remains. I am starting to get concerned cause It spread to a few other areas and doesn't seem to wan't to leave. I can provide more info but I just was wondering if someone had an idea what is wrong.

My husband and I going through the exact same thing. I've had about 20ish spots all over my body, that seems to fade but not entirely go away (For a month and a week, going on two weeks) Although I started Oral Meds late, I'm on day 6 of Terbinafine. I've been taking it day by day. Who would have thought Ringworm would suck so bad :(. We ended up getting it from 2 rescue kittens. They seem to kind of fade, but I can still see them. I've been trying a lot of things, including home remedies. I can tell you a few things that seemed to kick it in the butt a lot more than creams. Apple Cider Vinegar, and tea tree oil. I\m hoping the Terbinafine makes these completely disappear. Since this is a first ringworm experience for me, I have no Idea what they look like when they are in the process of healing :(. I almost feel depressed sometimes when I look at my skin, because I wonder if I will ever be back to normal.

Hello,
It can be due to fungal infection of the groin. Keep the area dry, wear loose fitting clothes, and change undergarments at least twice a day. Most cases respond to over-the-counter products, which contain any of several basic ingredients: miconazole, tolnaftate, terbinafine,ketaconazole and clotrimazole. You can consult a pharmacist and get any cream or lotion containing these ingredients.
If the symptoms persist then please get an evaluation done from a dermatologist.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
