Q: Is ring worm suppose to swell and harden

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com

I 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.
