3 Home Remedies for Tinea

Not a Doc

For Tinea with blistering and inflammation
For tinea with blisters that spreads. First treat inflammation with ibuprophen, then use a drawing salve on blisters to help dry them. Rinse with cold water and soap and dry thouroughly. Then follow up with anti-fungals. I have finally been seeing results with thus method. My suspicion is that the fungus can hide beneath blistering and use inflammation to continue to spread despite topical treatment. That is why I suggest treating inflammation, drawing blisters and then treating with anti-fungal. I hope this helps every single person struggling with persisting tinea. Let me know if this worked or helped you. : )


After 4 months, and $500 worth of Doctor visits, antibiotics, and antifungal creams, my 6 year old daughter's ringworm/tinea was still on her face. I came to this website hoping for something that would work and glad I did! There were three different people who suggested burning the peice of paper, applying the suphur residue and bam, next day gone...WELL IT'S THE TRUTH--IT WORKS!!! Here is exactly what I did: Take a sheet of notebook paper with the blue lines in it--wad it up loosely, place on a dinner plate and set the paper on fire. After the paper burns all the way down, blow the ashes off. Try to get ALL the ashes off. There will be a small amount of transparent orange residue left on the plate. This is called burnt sulphur. I took my fingertip and tried to get all of it on my finger, then smeared it on my child's ringworm. Yes, there were some ashes mixed, but what the heck..yes, it stung her--I blew it for her for about 3-4 minutes, and then it stopped. It also turned pink like a sunburn. I left it on overnight, uncovered. In the morning we washed her face and applied triple antibiotic ointment. She went to school with what looked like a very chapped/burned place on her face, covered in ointment. That night, we washed her face, applied triple antibiotic cream again, and the 2nd morning after the sulphur, her face was COMPLETELY healed. I could not believe it! Try it! I would not be coming back to this website, had it not worked. I had to share our experience--good luck!


For skin fungus (such as athlete's foot; tinea): rub some anti-dandruff shampoo on the affected area and let it dry on it. Leave it on overnight. Then, when you shower/bathe in the morning, wash it off. After your skin dries from the shower/bath, apply more and let it dry. Repeat for four days. This is the best treatment I've found in the years that I've been dealing with skin fungus.
