I have ringworm of the body and am going to start to take lamisil tablets. Ive been using the lamisil cream for 3 days now and it helps. My husband has athlete's foot and jock's itch (which is ringworm). He picked it up at the gym (Im assuming). It is contagious and he passed it on to me. Unfortunately with a weakened immune system my symptoms are heightened. The itchiness is bad all over. I don't sleep well at night because of the itchiness. The yeast is in my scalp, in my nose, groin area, face, neck, etc. The doctor said to take lamisil for 2 weeks and if its not better to take it for another 2 weeks. Ive never taken lamisil before so if anyone out there has for a fungul infection let me know. If so, did you have any side effects from lamisil. Thanks.
