    Yeah, a tube of Lamasil is like.. $6? It's killed 4 worm spots and hasn't even dented the tube. I wear a full rashguard and usually gi pants unless I'm prepping for a fight to avoid it as well, every friggin time? beard area, knick shaving or a pimple that takes too long to go away (hit it with Staphaseptic to kill MRSA and find out later its worm, grumble). Friggin now I hit them with staphaseptic, then take a shower and look close and hit it with the Lamasil if it even reminds me of it.

    Anyway yeah, don't hide the worm, just get rid of it.

    Oh, another thing:

    Lamasil doesn't work really well with my body chemistry, for me the nizorella actually kills it faster. So not that you shouldn't try it, but you should explore a bunch of different options.

    And if you have insurance talk to your doctor about getting you a tube of the prescription stuff.

    Finally, pay attention to every little itch you have, you'll be able to tell the difference. A real clear sign is, after you scratch, does it still itch? Guess what that means?

    So start treating immediately. You can afford to be paranoid. I mean think about it for a second. This is an absolutely revolting condition. Don't suffer it.
    Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.
    As far as possible, without surrender,
    be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    and listen to others,
    even to the dull and ignorant;
    they too have their story.

    Good call, my (IANAD) findings are 'itchy' and it's worm, pain and it's staf (or just hurts heh). But yeah, the itch is the key I've found.

    Beware of scaliness in the itchy spots too, that's sure-fire something-gone-wrong right there. I actually got ringworm on my hip (like 1.5 years after my BJJ training finished) and could only tell it was there by the discolouration and whatnot. You bet your ass I nuked that **** with prescription anti-fungal, and I sure as hell made sure the fungus stayed the hell away from anything and everything else.

    Use head and shoulders as a body wash!

    I have found the CURE for ringworm. Forget bleach or any kind of uneffective anti-fungal cream. Use mildew and mold remover. Rubs right off. I'm using Tillex.

    Stop yelling.

    Nizorelle does the same thing, it's just a different sort of chemical and I've found this one in particular works better for me. But I have heard about head and shoulders working before.

    And Sandbag, tell me you're not serious?

    Zinc pyrithione shampoo is generally much cheaper than Nizoral, although I use both. Ketoconazole (the active part of Nizoral) is also prescribed in tablet form as an antifungal.
    Tea tree oil isn't bad as a preventative also, you can find shampoos and bodywashes that have it.

    Given another post he made in another thread (that I'm too lazy to find), I'm inclined to believe the little bastard is completely serious.

    *shudders*

    The following is directed at no one in particular (except maybe sandbag). Preventative measures are great, but when one gets a true case of the nasties, one needs to visit his or her local friendly doctor. Home fucking remedies don't cut it. I've had both ringworm and staph in my very distant past, and both took several rounds of industrial grade prescription **** to kill it off.
