I'm embarrassed to have to ask this question but am hoping that someone may have some suggestions for curing ringworm. I picked it up from a kitten while traveling in early December, and despite all my treatments, I keep getting new little blotches on my abdomen, chest and face. I tend to have just one or two small ones present at any time, but just as I'm hopeful it's gone, a new one will pop up. It's like playing Whack-a-Mole.
Here's what I've tried: 1) washing all clothes/sheets/towels I've touched every day in hot water and drying on high (my clothes are the size of Barbie clothes now) 2) Fungicide soap, which is a tea tree based-soap 3) clotrimazole ointment 4) terbinafine (Lamasil) cream (massive allergic reaction, so this was discontinued) 5) Diflucan once per week week 5) 90% primal (some heavy cream, butter and cheese, no grains/legumes, good sleep, etc.)
I work in healthcare but I'm not a dermatologist. Currently working crazy hours, so I'd rather not take the day off to go to a dermatologist, but realize I might have to soon. Hoping that someone may have some suggestions, especially as there lots of MMA participants here. I've looked a lot on the web and some of the solutions seem really crazy or dangerous. Is coconut oil really antifungal? Should I cover or uncover the lesions?
Thanks for any tips!
