My son is being treated with this Gris-peg for scalp ringworm. He's been taking it now for 27 days and it has not cleared up his ring worm it's actually spread and gotten bigger in his scalp.

Took it for about 2 weeks, scalp cleared up perfectly within days so the doctor took me off of it. Infection came back even worse within a few weeks. Started it up again.. Both time severe insomnia and loose stools for the first few days. So frustrating to not be able to sleep but it does reduce the scalp symptoms fairly quickly.

My son was treated with it. We took him off after being on it for almost a year as the ringworm was not clearing. The cortizone cream alone actually worked best. He's been off for two months and still complains of headaches and stomache aches. I would not recommend it.
