Hi, I am 40 m. at the age of early 20 I got ringworm at my head and lost hair, now after so long time I am getting it back again at back side of my head, chest etc.... I went to Doctor, took medicins but as soon as I stop taking madicin ringworm is coming back.
Please advice me what to do, I am taking very good care of cleanness. for this reason I shaved my chest couple of times, but I can't every time. Please help me to get out of this thing.

You may want to ask your doctor for a prescription antifungal cream or wash to use a few times a week to help prevent the fungal infection.

I hope that helps
