Hello
I can understand your concern.
Ringworm infection is caused by a fungus called dermatophytes.
The infection can be recurrent uf not treated properly.
There are medications available now which have a much better efficacy than griseofulvin.
Its called terbinafine. The dose is 250 mg one tablet daily for 3 weeks. Also apply terbinafine cream twice a day over the affected areas twice a day for 3 weeks.
Please let me know if you have any queries.
Regards.
