ringworm not healed in years
Despite daily treatment of Micovar, a course of Fluconazole and one other course of tablets, I still have ringworm, mostly over my legs, but now on my arms. These are contained by treatment with the cream, but never go away. I have had this problem for over 6 years now. I do not think there is a Dermatologist in the town closest to me. My Pharmacist has said that it is sometimes caused by Cats. I do not have a cat, and my dogs do not come into the house, though I do have contact with them naturally.
Please help.

Concerned, my advice is to drive to the nearest dermatologist and have it sorted out, because I doubt that it is ringworm and if it is, having it for 6 years is bordering on ridiculous. Good luck.
