Is ring worm suppose to swell and harden

Patient: Is ring worm suppose to swell and harden

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.comI understand your concern.Yes, long-standing ringworm infections can cause hardening, and if it is not controlled, excessive itching can give it a swollen appearance. Please apply Clotrimazole powder, as it effectively treats ringworm infections.Hope this was helpful,Regards.
