Hi doctor,

I have been suffering from ringworm for the last one and a half months. Currently, my arms, legs, and face are infected. Along with this suffering, I am itching in my armpits, leg pits, and scrotum only in the summer seasons or after sweating. My current medications are Tyza 200 or IT Mac 200, one capsule a day for the past 45 days, Funzi MX cream or Fourderm cream two times a day, and I have been using it for more than two months and powder and soap containing Clotrimazole (Candid or Clocip Dusting Powder and Candid or Keto soap). I am a 29-year-old male. My weight is 69 kg, and I am overweight for my height. I do not have diabetes. I am currently in a hot and humid place. I request you to kindly suggest a permanent cure for my problem.



Welcome to

I have seen your query.

You are on the right medicine for ringworm, but there may be chances that you may have a resistant strain of fungus. So, should not use any steroid-containing cream.

Now, I suggest the tablet Trfy 250 mg (Terbinafine) once daily for 21 days, as this tablet has both fungistatic and fungicidal properties. Also, I suggest an application of DK gel (2% Miconazole) twice daily for at least two months.

Continue using KZ soap (Ketoconazole) and Adzorb powder (Clotrimazole). Consult your doctor, discuss with him or her and take the treatment with consent. Please get a review after one month.
