Canestan is the stuff you treat it with, right? How do you know when it has finished it's ringing / died / vapourised or whatever it is that ringworm does? Or do I continue to treat it until the ring dissapears completely? How long does it take to go? Do I need to see a doctor about it or is it one of those sort it out yourself things? How contagious is it, will the rest of the family get it? Thankyou
I got it from the kittens we had while I was pregnant. Not being able to speak Arabic I went to the body shop and used tea tree oil on it. I understand it is very contagious, you could always yahoogle it and find out.
I was prescribed lamisil AF gel for mine as canesten wasnt working. It took several weeks for it to go away completely. The gel itself said to use it for a week but the gp said to just keep using it until the ringworm went away.
Anti fungal cream or spray that you use for athletes foot will work for ringworm. DS went through almost a whole tube of cream before I let him stop just to be sure it was gone. It took him 4 weeks at least.
