Ive been using a highly concentrated dandruff shampoo on the affected areas along with tanactin cream for two weeks, but the infection is spreading from my stomach to my chest and back.
Antibiotics will not cure ring worm. It is a fungus. See a dr and get something else for it. There are pills for a fungal infection and stronger creams, but not antibiotics. Are you absolutely sure its ring worm?
My daughter had a bad, bad case of ringworm when she was a teenager. The doctor gave her creams, etc., and none of them worked. I special ordered an anti-fungal from WalMart pharmacy called BlisToSol. It is neon orange and you just coat the areas with a Q-tip. Within a week, the ringworm was resolved, with very little scarring. Pharmacies don't stock BlisToSol in their OTC meds, so it has to be special ordered. I hope you can find it. I keep it on hand all of the time. It's great for athlete's foot, which is its main use. It's very inexpensive, under $10.
