Hi !
Welcome to Healthcare Magic
All the skin allegies are very well managed by homoeopathy but what it needs is thorough case taking. The ointments and the antibiotics will give only temprory relief and will relapse again in more vigrous form. Its my sincere suggestion to follow Homoeopathy.

Thanks and take care

1. Gandhak Rasayan 250mg + Giloya Satva 500 mg mix both medicines and take twice a day empty stomach with honey.
2.Maha Manjisthadyarista 20 ml + 20 ml water +Arogya-vardhini Vati 2 tab twice a day after meal.
3. Apply Maha Marichyadi Tail twice a day.
Avoid sour things and take low salt diet.
Problem mentioned by you is Rakt Vikar according to Ayurveda. These all medicines are blood purifier.
Wish you a good health.

Greetings from health care magic
The problem of dad or ringworm can be well treated with homeopathic treatment. Yes this can appear at any area and is very itchy. It should be cured internally by medication is healthy for the future. Otherwise any supression of skin disease can cause asthmatic or allergic complain in future if they are supressed.
Thank you

the way you have added detail in your supplimentary detail it appears as if she is suffering from psoriasis. white flakes of dead skin take off and leave the skin red beneath. It calls for regular treatment and balanced diet. locally she can apply dermafex oil. internal medicine can be suggested on confirmation of diagnosis.

Hi, welcome to healthcaremagic forum
Any kind of skin infection should be properly observed and then treated by a doctor
. Ask your sister not to use any external medicated oinments as it will give only temporary relief and supress it for time being.
I would strongly suggest for a homoeopathic treatment. which can cure it.
