Checking back to report on my son's (pretty bad) scalp ringworm completely cured with coal tar shampoo and homeopathic sulphur. Ditching griseofulvin (we didn't even open the bottle), we started using nizoral shampoo on week 1, then 2-3 times a week, then went on using Castile soap for a bit before ordering Artnaturals medicated coal tar shampoo(it s a mild one), which completely got rid of the flaking immediately, and after a while I didn't even use it every day.---so far about washing his hair.other than that, topically, even before the official diagnosis, we applied tea tree oil 2-3 times a day, which didn't do anything.then we started our with ACV, did it for a couple of weeks, didn't seem to help.(I made him drink it though, diluted with with water and some maple syrup---btw, we weren't able to completely eliminate sugar from his diet, but he cured regardless,, as a side note).so, quitting ACV, we moved onto neem oil, mixed with lavender, and cinnamon oils (the latter is supposedly super powerful against fungus), then tried iodine, too(the yellow one), but ditched those, too, because the kid was distressed enough, and he constantly looked greasy haired, or yellow stained from those (btw skin fungus was successfully treated with iodine here, no problems),, so we moved onto using black walnut tincture, recommended to me by two helpful members here, which I believe helped a bit(not the brown colored liquid, but the bright green one), but the improvement was really slow and expensive (ordering the good quality from England, you can't get it here in Ireland), so after using up nearly two bottles I ended up buying the homeopathic Sulfur 30c for 8 euros, and within just a week of casually popping 2-3 tablets a day into his mouth the child's hair started to grow in a really spectacular way.i knew about it because another mom here was struggling with her daughter's scalp ringworm for 2 years after curing it with just the coal tar shampoo and the sulfur.our struggle was a mere 4 month one.we also used up a small bottle of herbal tincture that our local herbalist made up for us, to help clean my son's lymphatic system and in particular against fungus (internally), so I don t know, it may have contributed to the overall success, but like I said, the dramatic improvement took place when we started out with the homeopathic medicine.good luck to you all, and thanks for all your help!
Black Tar Shampoo, Tea Tree Oil, Sulfur
My nine year old daughter got ringworm in her scalp from summer camp. I tried everything acv, the prescript meds, polish, creams, bleach you name it. I got a natural cures book from a whole foods store and voila she is cured after two years of this nightmare! First you need black tar shampoo wash every night. Then 100% pure tea tree oil after you wash the hair use a q-tip with a little water on it rub into scalp gently. Last but not least organic sulfur sold in pellet form in blue tube about five tiny pellets per dose and it does'nt taste bad. Kind of like sugar water so my daughter actually did not mind it, gris-peg and others are gross tasting. I did this every day till the pellets ran out and amen she no longer has bald spots her hair is growing back! She can go to the hairdressers!!! No more itching!!!! She has been ring worm free for a year now...
PS change pillow case every night. Do not share combs or shampoo, brush during the process. Do not want to contaminate others. It's a lot to do but it is so worth it cuz ringworm in the scalp is hard to get rid of... Good luck!
