On cream from GP now for 2 weeks ..he said 2 weeks should see it fade and still use it for 1 week after

We (ds) have used it and it does not seem to be any better...3 inch by 3 inch on his thigh.

Keep going ..or go back for different cream?

I know ring worm is is tricky to treat ..but how long do I leave it?

Thanks

I have no idea but my son had a 2 inch circle on his leg that did not respond to treatment. He was sent to a dermatologist and it turned out that it was not ringworm but discoid eczema.
