FAQs about ringworm treatment online

Does ringworm get darker as it heals?

Upon healing, the skin gets brown, not the ringworm. However, the scarring goes away and does not occur in everyone. Usually, it appears as a clear ring on the affected area.

Can I go to urgent care for ringworm?

Ringworm is a fungal infection that can be treated with antifungal medication. However, if it doesn't cure even with medicine and 14 days have passed, revisit your doctor.

Can I get a prescription online for ringworm?

Yes, an online prescription for ringworm can be delivered to your preferred pharmacy upon a doctor's consultation online. Book a consultation now with an online doctor and get your treatment for ringworm at Your Doctors Online.

Can I treat ringworm myself?

If ringworm infection is acute, you can self-treat it with an antifungal ointment like clotrimazole and terbinafine, available over the counter. Also, keep the area clean and dry along with the medications.

What is the strongest antifungal cream for ringworm?

The most potent formula to treat antifungal cream for ringworm is terbinafine which comes in different forms, including creams, gels, and sprays. As per CDC guidelines, it is the most effective treatment for killing the causal agent of ringworm, i.e., tinea pedis.

Why have I had ringworm for so long?

Ringworm is caused by a fungal parasite that can live on your skin or used items for a long time, increasing the chances of reinfection. Therefore, washing and sun drying your personal care items like towels, bedding, and clothes after ringworm infection is essential.

What makes ringworm worse?

Ringworm worsens if itching and redness start in a small area, accompanying skin scaling. Itching and inflammation can spread to nearby areas, making the rash bigger. Moreover, tight clothing, sweat, heat, and moisture can worsen it, causing infection to spread.

When is ringworm no longer contagious?

After two days, the ringworm becomes non-contagious when you start taking antifungal treatment. It can spread to others if left untreated. As long as the rash lasts, it remains contagious and takes three weeks to recover without treatment.

What happens if ringworm goes untreated?

If the ringworm is left untreated, it can penetrate under the surface, causing severe infection. Fungal growth in deeper layers of the skin is hard to treat or eliminate. This condition is called Mjocchi's granuloma, which includes raised bumps and pustules.

What does a bad case of ringworm look like?

If your ringworm infection has worsened, it may look like a scaly skin rash with a range of colors from red, brown, purple, gray, or black circular rash.

Should I cover my ringworm when I sleep?

No, you cannot cover the ringworm with a bandage as it delays the recovery because the moisture traps in the bandage, favoring fungus growth. Although it seems like an excellent option to protect other areas from infection, instead, change your clothes and bedding every night to stop the spread.

Can clindamycin treat ringworm?

Clindamycin is an antibiotic effective against bacterial infections. Ringworm is a fungal infection, and hence, antifungals are required to cure it.
