Does garlic really work for treating ringworm? I have had this ringworm for about 3 years now. Please help me anyone.

Use a cream for ringworm/jock itch. Use the blow dryer to dry the cream. Moisture makes ringworm worse. The heat from the blow dryer will kill the ringworm. Hopes this helps.
To make a long story short, I got a ringworm while wrestling. I have had ringworms before and have gotten rid of them with pills and creams. And always my skin gets really irritated when I apply creams to it. I usually end up getting pills to get rid of them.
Anyways, it feels like a rash has taken the place of the ringworm I use to have in the center of my foot. But the rash also itches, I am going to see a dermatologist in a month. A month only because they are booked so I may have to get referred to another dermatologist by my Dr.
So I am not sure if the ringworm is killed or now, but I am still taking the pills and I stopped applying the cream because my foot seemed to get really irritated by the creams. I have had good luck with getting rid of them with pills alone, it is just that this time it is taking longer for it to stop itching.

If you apply cream it helps if you dry with a blow dryer on low heat. The heat kills fungus.
