Brief Answer:
Measures to hasten cure of ringworm infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at healthcaremagic
I have reviewed the attached prescription and the medicines prescribed are fine.
Ringworm is a fungal infection and fungi will take time to die and recovery will take some time.
Meanwhile for speedy recovery keep the area as dry as possible, stay in cool airy environment, wear cotton underwear, avoid strenuous physical activity, avoid sharing of soap and towels, change underwear twice in a day, wash it and iron it before wearing.
Reduce intake of sugary foods.
These are some simple measures which will hasten the recovery.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
