I have ringworm on the thighs, arms and chest for four months. When I used Fourderm, it was fine for two weeks. But again, it came back. I have not taken any oral medicines yet. I am on BP medicine Stamlo Beta. My age is 59 years.

Well, apart from the medical management following preventive measures are to be followed. Good nail hygiene, good skin hygiene, avoid dampness or wetting of the skin.
Wear loose-fitting and clean undergarments as well as clothes.
Coming to medical management, topical antifungals are effective for treating most cases of tinea corporis.
Systemic therapy is given in immunocompromised individuals, extensive skin lesions and those refractory to topical therapy.
