Ringworm rashes

I had ringworms on my leg, inner thigh and groin area. After applying ring guard and taking all precautions, it got cured. But it is coming again after few days. I don't know if it is because of the not completely dry clothes that I wear due to rains or the regular gym sweat. But I want a complete solution to this problem. My skin is sensitive type.

Hello Ringworm is nothing but fungal infection of the skin and fungi tend to grow in hot and moist areas of the body like groins. As you have rightly observed it tends to increase due to wet clothing or excessive sweating. Please keep the areas completely dry all the time. Just applying Ring guard is not the right treatment for it. Better is to consult a qualified dermatologist and take proper antifungal course for same.
