Along with local use of anti-fungal cream he might require oral anti-fungal medicine course,
Consult your doctor and get examined.

Hi, ive had two ring worms on my arm since may 2011. Both of my arms had one but they went away. A few months back i started getting it on my neck, and then on my right arm it came back. Then i started getting it on my face. The docters gave me ketoconazole 2% cream. It did not work so i went back for a refill. It still didnt work so they gave me pills. The pills did not work either. About a month ago my aunt brought me the same cream but from the Dominican Republic. It was working really well, untill i came back to my school on campus and took a shower it started getting red. My friend told me about useing clorox bleach. Ive been useing it for a week now and its just very red on my neck and arm. What should i doooooo!
