Ring worm requires prolonged medication in view of chronicity and recurrence . Good personal hygiene with bath and carbolic soap twice a day , wearing cotton inner wears, avoiding, synthetic , polyfibres or jeans is important . Parts to be kept dry by dusting with Mycoderm C or Candid powder. Inner wear should be dry when wearing . This is all that may be necessary
