There are different kinds of ringworms which can be mostly treated by the creams. Athlete’s foot is one kind that is acquired by most athletes and other sports enthusiast who wear shoes and socks often. Athlete’s foot locates itself on the feet, jock and also in the groin but is nothing that over-the-counter creams cannot get rid of. There are creams that need prescription such as Miconazole or Clotrimazole. Branded products also have creams that contain these products such as Micatin, Monistat, Tinactin and Lotrimin. Another branded product, Lamisil, not only contains those mentioned above but also Terbinafine which is a drug that has a high-level of treating fungus. Of course, before each application of the cream, the infected area must first be washed with soap and water and then dried. Make sure that the cream is thoroughly spread around the area of infection to achieve maximum effect. Never stop the medication if itchiness has disappeared because most treatments must finish a two to four weeks course before it is stopped.
