Q.

Dry patch

Hello Professor,

My little girl (16 months) had an oval shaped dry patch on her back, could it be ring worm, I have never see ring worm?
And if so, what do you recommend to get rid of it?

Thank you!

This does sound like a ringworm.Ask your pharmacist for Canesten cream and apply this to the rash twice a day until it clears up.
