for a ring worm listerine mouthwash works wonders. you will notice immediate change just thought you might want to know.
Re: ringworm, some friends and I had gotten it from a concert back in highschool. The OTC stuff didn't do a thing it only got worse. My boss at that time told me to use Lysol, because it kills everything. She even had one of her sons go get me a bottle of the concentrated liquid form of Lysol. I poured it on my arms, let it sit for a minute and wiped off the drips but didn't wash it off, the ring worm dryed up and was gone really quickly, you could see and feel the results right away.
I want to report a method I used that worked on ringworm - magnesium 'oil' - which is actually magnesium chloride salt in water- or brine - but they call it oil because magnesium chloride attracts water so strongly that it never evaporates as you rub it into the skin, so it feels like oil. I have apple cider vinegar, but didn't find this site until later, so I didn't know about it. I had that magnesium oil (not the expensive one) and it cleared it up after one or two applications. (I didn't pay attention) I just used like 5-6 sprays of the stuff, enough to coat the chest. I wish I had payed more attention, as it was so easy and quick!
was wondering why I don't see any more posts about using absorbine jr. for ringworm.
EC: Hi Candy, Yes we've moved all of those posts to a MENTHOL AND WORMWOOD OIL heading. We love how well this ringworm treatment seems to work, but EC would like to focus on the natural ingredients rather than the specific brand!
For about a month and a half I had a rash that started mysteriously around Xmas, and I wasn't sure what it was or how I got it. At first it started as bumps then the bumps turned into rings... And then I knew it was ringworm. And it covered my arms, torso, and legs. Pretty much I was devestated. The first rememdy of coconut oil and lavendar oil didn't do too much. It seemed to dry out the parts of the rash which wasn't but didn't do too much to help kill it. I then went on to use Lotrimin which was fine, but something told me to search for more. I then found this site and saw the information on Menthol and Wormwood Oil ... Needless to say its been a day and I'm already seeing results as well as using tea tree oil on the affected areas. I'm amazed this is working so well, plus it seems to help with the itching which has been a huge bane. THANK YOU For this information. Ringworm on this level is very harsh to deal with and effects self esteem... I'm very certain this method will kill this issue. :)
I have begun to treat my 6 year old son with Absorbine Jr. for ringworm on his scalp. It does seem to be helping. Can anyone tell me how long you need to treat the infected areas?
Hi- I have to share this -because my ringworm was horrible! For over 6 months I thought I had eczema on my knee and little finger. I bought every over the counter treatment for eczema. It kept getting worse! It was weepy & creepy & UGLY
I have no insurance - so no Doctor... I figured why spend $$$$ to cure what is probably a simple problem.. After the months rolled by I was scared and it was worse- the patch on my little finger now wrapped around it and was near the nail.. The patch on the side of my knee was about the size of a tangerine... I actually thought about going to a Doc. But instead I went and asked a pharmacist.. "it's an ugly fungus" buy Lamisil isle 24.. I bought it and NOTHING!!! After a week I was panicking!
Desperate I found this website- I used a combination of Absorbine Jr and Tinactin DRY jock itch spray (friend suggestion). I was helping with a construction job this summer so between the sweat, dirt, and sawdust I always stayed wet- so wrapping my finger was out of the question. And my skin just hurt.
I began to treat myself 2 to 4 times a day--I really enjoyed the Absorbine Jr burn- I pressed cotton balls of it on my ringworm. (I did not contaminate the bottle)- I would let it dry and spray on a thick cool layer of Tinactin- at night I would use fresh guaze... so my bed would not be contaminated, and washed my sheets every other day.
It is about 6 weeks since I began and I have a tiny patch on the web between my fingers- My leg is discolored where it was but no longer burns...
I have gone through 3 bottles of Absorbine and 2 Tinactin. I am going to continue it for at least another bottle and can of each.... Because I never want to go through that again! Thanks!
My son had been suffering from ringworm for about a month and it seemed anything that we tried didn't make a dent. With him being right in the middle of football season we were afraid it might cost him a good part of the season. After doctor visits and prescriptions not working we were losing hope. I then stumbled over this website talking about Absorbine Jr. curing ringworm. After reading other testimonials I thought it worth a try. Let me tell you it is amazing! Why doctors don't recommend this is beyond me. In about a weeks time he is a thousand times better. Be warned it does burn like a mother when it is applied but it works! Don't waste time with other treatments, this is it!
I have had ringworm for over six months, I have tried glycolic acid lotion, pine tar soap, Retin A cream, apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, Miconozole Nitrate, tea tree oil, pimple cream with salicylic acid, calamine lotion, cortisone cream. All of these either didn't work or made it more inflamed and itchier. Then I tried Absorbine Jr. Hallelujah, it has done more in 12 hours to dried it up and take the redness away than anything I have tried. If you have ringworm, go to a drugstore immediately and buy this. It is literally a miracle cure. I wish I had known about Absorbine Jr. earlier. Thank you Earth Clinic.

After dealing with recurring ringworm for 15 years, it came back with a vengeance this past week. Holy cow, it was spreading like crazy from behind one ear, across the back of my neck, onto my scalp, and to the other ear. I was mortified - I looked like a leper! None of my old standbys were working (Selsun Blue, Lamisil, and various other OTC antifungals) and it was just spreading more and more. So thanks to this site, I discovered Absorbine and although it hurts like hell, it's working! I applied it 5 times yesterday and this morning ALL the areas are dried up and swabbing over. I've applied it 4 more tomes today and I can tell its healing. Absorbine is AMAZING! Hopefully it doesn't come back but if it does, I have my Absorbine arsenal.

This is my very 1st experience with ringworm or any other rash for that matter (except poison ivy). Before I realized what I had, the rash had proceeded from my neck to my feet, covering most of my body with amazingly horrible raised red bumps and patches. I couldn't sleep at night because of the relentless itching!! I tried every home remedy I could find with almost no relief. Then I tried Absorbine Jr. OMG...... INSTANT RELIEF from itching.... It feels WONDERFUL!!!! Please don't do ANYTHING before you rub some Absorbine on your rash..... It is a MIRACLE in a BOTTLE!!!!
Thank God For Absorbine Jr. This is my first time having ring worm. I have a quarter size patch on my left arm, near my elbow. It was very itchy and red. I came across this website, went to CVS and purchased Absorbine Jr. On my break. I cleansed the area with a baby wipe and applied the Absorbine with a cotton ball. I then held it in place until the tingling subsided. I am now back at work, the itchiness has stopped and the redness has calmed to a pink. After one application I am confident that this will work. I thank God and can now finish work and know I'm on my way to healing. Thanks earth clinic!!!!
I had a spot of ringworm on my inner thigh in the groin area that I treated with CVS brand lamisil for a month. It went away and came back. I kept applying the cream twice a day for two months or more, and it never went away. Then I saw another spot on my left leg. When I switched to another cream, it got angry and more red and larger. Then I got desperate, imagining this nasty stuff spreading like wildfire.
I have been using absorbine Jr. four times a day for almost 2 weeks now. There was a lot of flaking and scaling within the first week, and the burning was fierce on the raw areas. But now on day 12, things are looking 70% better. I hope with another week of treatment it should be gone. In researching ringworm, I am making sure to cover it lightly with bandages so it can breathe but not spread. Also, I am only wearing pants one day and washing all of my bottoms separately from tops etc with Borax and clorox for colors, along with my regular detergent so this stuff doesn't infect me elsewhere. Yuck.
Absobine jr seems to a prevelant effective remedy as l see on your site for ringworm, l called my pharmacy and they have absorbine for arthritis, does it need to be specifically for ringworm?

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.
