Different types of ringworm can be treated by applying antifungal ointments

The treatment of mycosis, an infection that affects the skin, usually varies according to the type of fungus, the affected area and the severity of the problem. In some cases, it may be necessary to use oral pills or injections to treat the condition.

In superficial and non-serious cases, treatment is carried out with the use of antifungal agents in different formats. “We use some antifungals in spray format, some in powder form (talc), and creams can also be used”, says dermatologist Thais Matsuda.

Among the most popular antifungal options are ointments, as they promote rapid absorption and are easy to use. They can also be applied to different parts of the body, being indicated for the treatment of different types of mycosis.
