How do you cure ringworm?

Most commonly, the antibiotic Griseofulvin is used to cure ringworm, however in some cases, it might go away by itself.  Terbinafine, Itraconazole, and Fluconazole are also used against ringworm.  It’s also important to make sure you don’t use clothing or hats that are infected with the fungus or you could re-infect yourself.

Ringworm can also go away on its own!

The “best” part about hair loss related to fungal infections is that it will most likely grow back!  While you’re waiting for ringworm to go away or for your medication to work, a keratin shampoo can help prevent hair from breaking off.  (It’s the keratin that ringworm attacks).
