  1. I noticed a small pink ring on the side of my trunk about elbow high, about a year ago. I ignored it thinking it was a food allergy and would go away. About a month ago, I noticed it is 3 times as large as it was. It has never itched or burned, and this is the only time I’ve ever had ringworm (confirmed by my doctor that it is ringworm). I bought some Lotrimin Anti-fungal Ringworm Cream, which I have used 1-3x per day since July 1st with minimal, if any, improvement. Is sepia the right product for this? Thank you.

  2. Jeremy Sherr mentions that Bacillinum is the best remedy for ringworm.

  3. Hi Kayla, if you are scratching please is t if you are bathing try to avoid rubbing the lesions with your towel dab those area with antibacterial soap and water and put sulphur 8 or emuiad on in constantly until it disappears. It’s a fungus easily spread if you scratched with your nails which is a absolutely no no cut your nails off the infections can stay especially if you’re not washing your hands thoroughly as suppose… I have one on my leg now got it from daughter which she got from my sisters around being around her dog… she has multiple ringworms in her head now I’m treating it with head and shoulders shampoo or sulphur 8 and greasing her scalp with the two I suggested to you sulphur 8 or emuaid use until it disappears so far her lesions are drying out slowly and be sure everything you touch with those lesions wash thorough if you have to put a capful of Clorox in your laundry do so to kill the fungus and cut your sweets don’t know what good that will do but the healthier the body the better the immunity to fighting off infections hope this helps God Bless…

  4. Hello, I have had ringworm for quite some time on my stomach. It recently spread farther out and up underneath my chest. Today I noticed it is on my back neck and scalp. I am unsure if my nails are effected but it is possible as the tips are wavy recently. I am currently taking colostrum, beef heart, liver, brain, trachea, bone marrow, tallow, fish eggs, vitamin c, zinc, and magnesium spray. I have high anxiety and am constantly under distress the last 4 months which in this time frame is when it has begun to spread past the original infection. I’m currently working on healing my gut health and am hoping to avoid western medication.

  5. Brent Wilson says:

    some 6 years ago i suffered large ringworm patches on my legs and treated it with somekind over the counter cream which was my only option at the time. when my emotional and diet habits came under control the symptoms faded out of sight but my thumb nails and toenails are now mildly misformed and a naturalpath said it was caused by fungas, so, Im guessing that there is still some remaining affects of the ringworm/fungis, internally, from the years back.
    based on this story, Im convinced the naturalpath Dr is correct about a “fungis” infection and I would like to treat this with interanal homeopathic medicine rather than the topical nail fungis approach
    Please advise
