oral nd topical antifungals are advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Welcome to Healthcaremagic.com. I have read your query. I understand your concern.
Ringworm that is fungal infection of skin may involve any part of the body. It spreads from person to person and may spread to involve other parts of body also. So it definitely requires treatment.
In my such patients , I prefer to advise topical antifungals like clotrimazole cream / miconazole cream and tablet fluconazole / terbinafine / itraconazole. Treatment depends on the extent of involvement of disease.
You should visit your doctor so that he can examine you and give you prescription. You can share my opinion with him. I hope it helps. Take care.
