Ringwom, also called as dermatophytosis, is a clinical condition caused by a fungal infection of the skin. The fungal infection causes a parasitic infection that feeds on the outer layer of skin, hair and nails. The fungus thrives on skin that is warm and moist, but it may also survive directly on the outside of hair shafts. To date, statistics show that up to 20 percent of the population is infected by ringworm and is especially common with people who are active and play sports. Ringworm medicine includes topical agents like Miconazole, Terbinafine, Clotrimazole, Ketoconazole, Tolnaftate. Ringwork medicine can generally be applied twice daily until symptoms go away. Ringworm medicine can be continued for seven additional days until all visible symptoms are gone.
