Infectious Disease Specialist Questions Topical medication

I had a ringwom infection a year back and now I'm relapsing. Can you recommend any treatment?

I had a severe ringworm infection a year ago that I treated with topical medication, but now I'm relapsing. Is there a permanent way to treat this infection?

Thanks for the question. You can still use topical treatments, including azoles and terbinafine. For refractory ringworm, these agents are also available as pills.
Some people are predisposed to ringworm infections, just treat as they appear. You can prevent infections, but you need to know how these microorganisms thrive (dark, humid places like folds of skin, between toes, etc.) and keep these areas clean and dry.
