I have been to a Dr. But still have had ringworm for 4 months..
Is that normal?

Hello. Thank you for posting.

Four months is indeed a long time. Ringworm is spread by skin-to-skin contact or by touching an infected animal or object. The treatment for ringworm is antifungal medications. In most cases, you’ll have to use the medicines on your skin for 2 to 4 weeks to make sure you kill the fungus that causes ringworm. It’ll also lower your chances of it coming back.

Check in with your doctor about this. He might be able to offer more insight. Unless he says otherwise, continue using the medication.
