Hi, I am having a ringworm in groin area, a doc suggested me to use clobetasol. It worked but when I stop applying it, the red marks starts appearing again. It is increasing the area also, now extended to thighs and butts too. Can you please suggest whom to consult. Please recommend good doc.

Hi. Clobetasol is never advised in ringworm infection and on long term use it will just damage your skin. Initially it reduces itching and rashes due to its antiinflammatory effect but can never kill the fungus. So there wil be persistence of fungal infection with more number of lesions. Visit nearest dermatolgist in person if possible or online .thanks.

Good evening lalithai. Extensive ringworm will require treatment in the form of antifungal tablets/capsules and creams/lotions. Diet modifications will not cure a ringworm infection. Kindly consult a qualified dermatologist and avoid self treatment of ringworm.
