Most people are looking for the easy way out of ringworm. Some doctor’s treatments for ringworm do not work. Some of them do help with ringworm but will not fully eradicate the spores.
Over-the-counter medicated shampoos will not work to cure ringworm however, they will help to relieve itching and limit spreading of the ring worm spores.
The ringworm symptoms vary depending on the area of infection. On the scalp it starts out as a small pimple that becomes larger, often leaving bald patches. On the body, the red round areas feel itchy. On the foot it can cause dry, cracking and scaly skin, which is sometimes referred to as athlete’s foot.
