I don't know if what I am now having now is ring worm. I had this before. It is a worm like something that zigzag under the skin. I visited my GP and I was giving all kind of anti-fungal cream that really made things worse. The itch is really bad. The area does not hurt but whatever is under there kept moving and leaving a zigzag trail and it itch terribly. At first I thought it was an insect bite, because that is what it felt like. It got so bad that I suggested to my doctor that the area needs to be opened so to scrape what ever was bothering me out.Tthen my mum sow it and recommended cola nut as the cure. She sent for cola nut broke part of it and chew it and then spate it to the area affected. I suddenly felt a cool calm and within five minute the itching has stop. This procedure was repeat 3 times is the day. 3 days after I started seeing sign of cure. I was so relieved. Three years has gone by and I have this same thing appearing on the skin again. This time round the cola nut seem to only sooth it but not curing it. The doctors don't seems to have any remedies either, so I called on my mum for advice. She recommended normal fluoride based toot paste. I apply it and immediately started feeling some relieve. 24 hours is gone and I am still itching only to soothe it with the toothpaste. So I decided to combine the tooth paste and the cola nut together and slap it on the affected area religiously and it seems to be working. I will let you know how it does in a few days time. But what a combination. I also want to know if anyone knows about cola nut. I know it is used widely in West Africa. it is usually chewed, and it is said to keep the stomach free of worms as well energising the body.
