I have been being treated for what was diagnosed as ringworm

Customer Question

I have been being treated for what was diagnosed as ringworm for a couple of months. More recently I have taken 3 weeks of oral terbinafine but have stopped taking it now because of horrible side effects. The dark rings have gone but I’ve still got a big raised rash and I think I can see a new site! I’m at my wits end

Welcome and thank you for the question.

I am assuming that you have used ointments earlier - what ointments have you used so far?

Any oral antifungal?

What side effects do you have?
