[YEA] I have had reoccuring problems with ringworm for about 28 years, when I contracted it overseas in the military. For anyone who has ever had problems with ringworm, you know how irrating the itching and how fast the fungus can spread on your skin where areas stay warm and moist.
After using various antifungal creams off and on for many years, the ringworm would come back, and in the summer time, it would come back with a vengance.
Thank God I happened to find this website that suggested using Absorbine Jr. to address the spreading skin infection.
For the last week, I had a strong outbreak of ringworm in my groin area, and I guess I scratched it, and it got infected and started creating a hard mass under teh skin that was very painful and for obvious reasons, concerned me greatly. After reading several of your wonderful comments of using Absorbine Jr. to stop the ringworm spread, I went to my local CVS store and bought a bottle of the regular liquid with the sponge applicator on top.
I was amazed after applying the liquid on the affected areas, that the itch immediately went away, and within a couple of hours, I could actually see the angry red areas start to return back to the normal skin color.
The Absorbine Jr. did burn a bit on several areas that were pretty raw, but after fanning the area with a newspaper, the burning went away, as did the constant itching that I have had to endure for all these years.
The infected painful mass that was brewing under the skin also was smaller and the skin starting to return to normal color the next morning when I woke up, so with regular applications of this wonderful Absorbine Jr., I think I finally have located a product that will help me be more comfortable in the future. I am grateful for all the wonderful people who shared their experiences because as I type this sitting in my recliner at home, for the first time in about 28 years, I am not itching.
