For Tinea Corporis: “I have never had poison ivy, ringworm, etc. but SOMEHOW, got ringworm (think it may have been from the soil after doing some gardening outside). Had it very mildly for 2 months before someone pointed it out to me. Went to my physician, got prescribed Nystatin and Triamcinolone, both failed MORE than miserably. The ringworm, which had been sitting quietly, suddenly flared, hugely (that would be the triamcinolone). Growing 2 1/2 full inches inside of a single week. It also reacted VERY badly to the prescriptions. Both of them. They hurt, and itched madly. In any case, spent a good hour going through many large boxes, and found a tube of Tolnaftate. Figured, well, got to try something, so after cleaning well, and drying same, put some on. INSTANT relief... The ringworm fought back a little the second day, but by the 4th day (today) the ring had near disappeared, and most of the itching was gone. WILL use it for the full 2 to 4 weeks regardless, but it is working far better than the prescriptions thus far. :)”

For Tinea Versicolor: “I started using Tinactin ointment on my face. But I'm worried because my face became so itchy esp. on the spots where I applied it. Now, I'm confused if I'll still continue the use of it. Does itching come normal upon application?”

For Tinea Cruris: “Had ever worsening fungal rash for 3 months under doctor's care and use of multiple prescribed remedies including topical and oral agents without relief. Found tolnaftate at pharmacy independently in desperation prior to leaving on beach holiday. Tolnaftate was immediately effective with rash disappearing within 48 hours. Thank you for saving my vacation.”
