Ringworm is a very common infection that affects adults and children. Despite the name, ringworm is actually caused by a fungus rather than a parasite. The rash is typically ring-shaped and can appear on the scalp, face, neck, and other areas of the body. Ringworm infections are contagious, so it is important to start treatment as quickly as possible.
Anti-fungal creams containing Clotrimazole or Miconazole are a safe and effective way to get rid of a ringworm infection. We stock products from Canesten and Daktarin. When applied to the affected area, the cream kills the yeast and any associated bacteria. It may take up to 10 days for the infection to be completely eradicated.
