Question: Hello,

I am suffering from ringworms all over my face and neck since feb 2018. Earlier they were small circles but now they have grown big in size and covering most of the area my face.

I had visited the doctor he had prescribed me Sporanox 100 and an ointment fintop -ap. But, that could not solve the purpose in fact its spreading at its pace.
Please advice.
