How to Soothe an Itchy Body Ringworm

If you have ever had a case of body ringworm, you know how uncomfortable and irritating it can be, and how much you hate being affected by it. Even though the infection is called a ringworm, it really isn’t. You can’t feel a ring on your skin. No matter how much you want to pick, press or touch it, you cannot. Furthermore, you can’t quite explain how you got it, either. All of these symptoms are manifestations of ringworm, or dermatophyte infection commonly called “fungal infection”.

There are many anti-fungals which are advertised nowadays, but many people are still not sure about buying one. Even though more and more products and cures are coming out frequently, the biggest problem remains that many anti-fungal products lack the necessary constituents and are not effective. So how do you pick the right one, is the question. To sellers who sell such products, the answer is simple. They give free trials. The more unusual the product, the more convincing the ploy.

There are three basic ingredients that any such product should have, if it is to be effective. These are the power of antifungal, irritation and relief. In the case of body ringworm that manifests on the body, you need a product that has all of these four ingredients to be successful. Products that have these ingredients are guaranteed to work.

Power of anti-fungalIf you want to feel safe in terms of being able to clear up your ringworm problem, then it is imperative that you use products that have strong anti-fungal properties. The best of these products contain miconazole, which is an essential anti-fungal in the botanical family. This substance has been shown to be effective in treating foot and plantar fungal infections. On the other hand, products that contain clotrimazole or other strong antifungal substances are also recommended.

Intermunction of hygienic productsThe problem with most of the recommended products is that they simply end up doing more harm instead of good. For ringworm, simply changing your pillow case, washing the bed with different liquid and using different glue is not enough to solve your problem. You need something much stronger than that.

Healing is also important, even if the infection is not that severe. Products with natural antiseptics are known to be more effective, as they do not only cure the ringworm, but also protect the skin from getting infected again.

reliefSome of the strong antifungal ingredients such as Lamisil, Chemakote, Sporanox and Cantharidin have reported to have positive effects on the healing of skin rashes caused by ringworm. While their effectiveness is still a topic of debate, I can say I know of people who have had their fungal infections cured completely, when they applied products with these ingredients on their infected areas.
