My 4 year old started taking the med last night. Before, His ring worm would heal then comeback again. This morning when we got up I check his scalp the blister are going away and he said it was not hurting him anymore. he did complain of a slight headache and felt a little warm, i'm not sure if that is side effect related. I do enjoy how easy it is to use.

My 6 year old was taking this med for his scalp area and on his skin. He has taken it before but this time he has gotten diarreah really bad. That is the only problem I have with this medication.

My 5 yr old just started taking this two days ago. See no difference yet but doc did say she needed to be on it for 2 months to make sure it clears up. Ringworms don't look like they use to. Hers look like scabs instead of rings and her hair is still there. Have to give the meds with fatty foods or milk or your child will have diarrhea but mine has not had any yet.

My 6 year old contracted ringworm of the scalp. He started taking this medicine but had to stop because it gave him severe diarreah (sp?) and leakage.
