Ringworm and itiching
I have got severe ringworm on my body, specially on my lower back( buttocks). I have shown it to the dermatologists and was prescribed creams and medicines, but nothing works. It stops for one or two days and again the itching starts. Kindly help me with a good doctor or medication, as this is one irritating infection. I want it to vanish completely. Please help thanks.

​​Fungal infection is becoming an increasing problem due to rampant usage of antifungals. Please see a dermatologist as some extra medications are coprescribed many a times to treat. I​​f needed a simple skin test can also be done. Till then use only OTC anti-allergic me​​dications to control itching. Personal hygiene should be good. Wear loos​​e fitting c​​lothes.
