Azoles for Ringworm of the Skin
Why It Is Used
Azoles are used to treat ringworm of the skin. Creams are usually used first. You can get some azole creams, such as Micatin, without a prescription. If an antifungal cream does not clear up the infection or if the infection is severe and widespread, then your doctor may prescribe antifungal pills.
