Ringworm all over my body taking terbinafine and applying ketoconazole topically.
Hello, I am very scared. I have got ringworm all over my body. My doctor prescribed the terbinafine oral pill and I'm using ketoconazole topically. I am on day 4 of the pill and my spots are growing and increasing in number. I worried as I haven’t seen any improvement. Does anyone have any success stories on these medications?
@hulas Hello, Terbinafine is used to treat infections caused by a fungus. It works by killing the fungus or preventing its growth. Most mild cases of ringworm usually clear up in 2 to 4 weeks. But treatment might be needed for up to 3 months if the infection is more serious. 4 days is way too soon to see any progress, by 4 weeks you should have a wonderful recovery, just give the medications time to work (2-3 weeks average).
