Ring worm

Since my baby was 3 months old up to 9 months he has something at the back of his head and it looks like ring worm. What can I use?

Hi Nelly

For a ringworm on the scalp, you can wash the affected area with Niz Shampoo. The shampoo should be used twice weekly for two to four weeks. It should be left for three to five minutes before rinsing.

Make sure you thoroughly wash your baby's bedding and clothing when you start treatment so that he doesn't get reinfected.
