I have been dealing with what is either jock itch or ringworm (I'm told it's pretty much the same thing) for shit 5 years now. It started as a few spots on my legs and now 5 years later I have it on my legs, my ass, my balls, my arms, and now I'm starting to get it on my face and head. I have tried EVERYTHING and nothing has worked. I've tried every otc cream, spray, and powder. I've tried tea tree oil, mouth wash, peroxide, bleach, vinegar, lime-away. I even crushed fresh garlic into a paste and rubbed it on me. That actually burnt my skin so bad I gota blister the size of a golf ball! I've been to the dr. 3 times. Twice I've been given anti-fungal pills which apparently are horrible for your liver, and still I am infected. Some of the stuff I've tried makes it seem as though it's starting to go away but it always comes back within a week. I use clean towels and wear clean clothes. I've tried burning it off, scraping it off... I'm almost to the point I may try cutting it out of me. I don't care how painful the remedy is... Please can somebody suggest something I haven't yet tried (I've also tried the alcohol, both rubbing alcohols and drinking alcohol). I'm so depressed and disgusted every time I look in the mirror I want to kill myself. I know this sounds dramatic but this has really gotten to me. PLEASE HELP!
