Ringworm on body parts
Have been suffering from ringworm on various parts of body, especially private parts. Consultated local doctor and have been prescribed O2 Derm ointment and Candiforce 200 capsule. Have taken 12 capsules till date and applied few tubes of the ointment. It itching goes away and returns back after a few days. It feels irritated at times, but of no help as the major itching is in private parts. Kindly suggest a fast and permanent remedy to the problem.

Hi. Greetings. Fungal infection is quite common, especially more common in men. This is often related to humidity, tight clothing, excess sweating and accumulation of moisture. You'll need to keep the area dry, wear lose clothing. You'll need to see a dermatologist for confirmation of infection and continue treatment with oral antifungals and creams. If there's resistance to one particular medicine another medicine may be needed depending on your improvement. It is important to take medicines / apply creams atleast for two to three weeks and sometimes even more due to resistance pattern - under the guidance of the dermatologist. DO NOT USE OVER THE COUNTER CREAMS LIKE BETNOVATE GM OR PAN DERM OR QUADRIDERM... this will only prolong the infection. Hope this helps.
