I have ringworm; Borax and creams did not work, any advice?

HELP ME PLEASE
I have ringworm really really bad. Its in over twenty spots on my body. I have tried borax, it made it worse. I have tried creams. For months, they've done nothing. Also tried some oils. I am now on an oral treatment that is hazardous to my liver!? & putting clear nail polish on all the spots. Please help me. I have two small children and I'm so scared they'll get it too. Is there anything else I can do???

Apple cider vinegar

Jock itch cream/antifungal cream. If that doesn't clear it up in three or four days you have something other than ringworm, I work at animal shelter seen it, had it. It clears up quickly.

I got tested and the said its fungal but I've used two differently creams, they didn't work

Tea tree oil also

Mix some tea tree oil into coconut oil. It cleared mine within days

A friend told me a bicarb bath worked when her kids were little and had it.

Nevermind natural to cure ringworm. I have found them to be not powerful enough in many cases to kill ringworm fast. Here is the sure fire way to get rid of ringworm and it is not a harmful medicated cream. Go to the foot section of your local pharmacy (or yeast infection section) and get something called Chlortrimazol. It is a powerful broad spectrum anti fungal cream that kills ringworm. In very short order too. It actually says it is good for ringworm right on the box usually. I cleared up a case of ringworm in under a week with it. It took only about 3-4 days.

^^That's what I said. Agree 100%

Oh did you? I missed that. Good stuff huh? I swear by it.

We keep it on hand at the animal shelter. I cleared a spot overnight because I caught it right away.

Anna North

That's why I like it, it's fast. My Mom just recently had a mystery fungus that was driving her nuts on her legs. We tried a natural gel that I really like, which is quite powerful and it failed to clear it up. It helped, but did not cure it. So, I told her to get the Chlortrimazol and it was cured in a matter of a few days. She also used in on her dogs and it cleared up their's too, in very short order.

I had one spot on my thigh years ago, that was the size of a silver dollar. Grapefruit seed extract cleared it up in no time!

Dee Ashby

I can see why you would use it in an animal shelter. Animals are notorious for carrying fungi. Especially Ringworm.

Bill Bliss
B

That's how I learned about Ringworm, was from a Butcher. He said he got it all the time from handling meat/animals. He recognized it right away and told me about Chlortrimazol.

Bill Bliss
B

Colloidal silver.

Kevin Covington

I have heard that Grapefruit seed extract is quite powerful Dee Ashby. Never tried it, but I have heard great things about it. It can even be used internally for fungi and bacteria too.

Bill Bliss
B

For sure. It addresses candida & is included in many candida cleanse kits.

Dee Ashby 3 years

Yes it does kill Candida. Quite a few things do actually.

Bill Bliss 3 years

Anything alkaline kills Candida. It hates alkaline conditions and loves acids.

Bill Bliss 3 years

And is great for cleaning, in place of bleach. Will kill superbugs too!

Dee Ashby 3 years

Hmmm, really? Now that is truly versatile. Wow.

Jessica Davison 3 years

Black walnut oil cleared it up next day! Amazing stuff.

Allison Bolden

Be sure it's ringworm and not Lyme the rash can look similar

She said she got tested & it was fungal

Can it go away on its own

Stef Dale

Usually no since it's a fungus

Shari Pace 3 years

Usually no.

Bill Bliss 3 years

Clamitrozol or however it's spelled. It's an antifungal. Cleared up my sons within a day

Shari Pace

Crush fresh garlic and leave it on the spot for 10 mins and repeat four times a day. Try to keep a bandaid or clothing over the ring worm so it doesn't spread. Wash your sheets often

Jade Bingham

Iodine. And garlic. The garlic didn't work as well on it's own for this last time I was treating this, but with iodine, gone fast. Five kids=lots of experience with all kinds of exciting things...

Amanda Gallo

My dermatologist told me to put eucalyptus oil on it 4 times a day

Damien Mayberry

Iodine!

Suzette Harper

Water with bleach mixture .... Dab it on daily

Angie Petty

Bicarbonate soda large tablespoon in your bath and nettle tea make a cup with two bags, pour that water into your bath, should start seeing am improvement in 2 days, keep doing it for a week to make sure you've got it all

Samantha Mims

Apple cider vinegar has worked for me! Just apply some on the infected area a few times per day until it's gone!

Danielle Sullivan
D

It's a fungal infection... Coconut oil, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, garlic, oregano oil, etc

Jules Hernandez

Raw garlic with band aids it might burn but it worked for a family member of mine

Michelle Novak

Was it diagnosed as ring worm? I had a rosea something or other years ago & hitailed it to the Dr thinking it was ringworm. It wasn't and went away on its own.

Michelle Santiago
M

yes it is fungal

Alieah Walker 3 years

6 months is a long time. Extra virgin coconut oil, iodine, collidal(sp) silver, tea tree oil, grapefruit oil extract, epsom salt. If these havent worked then i would consider seeing a holistic doctor maybe.... Sending good vibes that you get it cured asap♡♡♡

Kimberly Roper

Tea tree oil

Beth Roark

Jessica Davison 3 years

Alieah Walker 3 years

I tried 2different otc creams. 3prescription creams. And then the pill for it.

Jessica Davison 3 years

how long did you tan for at a time?

Alieah Walker 3 years

I have tried tea tree, eucalyptus, oregano, and coconut oil.

Alieah Walker

I tried that, too. Iodine. Cheap & easy.

Amanda Gallo 3 years

Where can I find it? How many times a day for I apply it?

Alieah Walker 3 years

Any drug store. Walmart. Cvs. Pretty much anywhere. My great aunt used it on everything when we were little. And she's still rocking it well into her 90s.

Amanda Gallo 3 years

My daughter had terrible ringworm and the topical prescription medicine the doctor gave her kept making it worse! Horrifying! Then I found this propolis cream, a natural antibiotic and it cleared up in 3 days... Now we don't live without it and have one in every room. Also great for eczema, diaper rash, acne, cracked heels... https://shop.foreverliving.com/retail/shop/shopping.do?itemCode=051

Is this available in any stores? How bad was your daughters case? I'm just so upset, it's every where and it's just getting worse

Alieah Walker 3 years

It is not available in stores but ships two-day fed ex. Her ringworm was terrible and kept getting redder and redder with the prescription cream... I was so upset... This changed everything for us! It's all natural, no chemicals or toxins.

Sarah Denton
S

Did she get tested for ringworm? Was hers in one spot or did it spread? And how much did it cost you? Sorry for all the questions

Alieah Walker 3 years

Was just in one spot and doctor said it was ringworm. I'm sorry I didn't pay attention to costs, insurance covered the dr visit and I think the cream was around $20. It made it redder and redder and more inflamed... I kept taking her back in and he kept saying to put more of the cream on... So disturbing that I finally took matters into my own hands! Bi can't make medical claims on this product, just go with my own experience...

Tinactin works although not natural.
