Im taking Azadirachta indica Q and Tinospora cordifolia Q 5drops each thrice daily in half glass of water internally for ringworm in my left groin.Is it okay? How many days I have to wait for effect and continue this treatment? Will it remove the hyperpigmentation in that region?
22 Nov 2016
Dear Sameer
I guess you may try Tea tree oil. Dilute it with some other base oil and apply on the affected area. Or you may add 2 to 3 drops of tea tree oil in water and wash the affected area with that water. You may take Neem tincture 2 times in a day for 10 days only.

Have you tried tea tree oil?
Take a few drops of Tea tree oil and dilute it in some coconut oil. Apply it on the affected area 2 to 3 times in a day.
You may also apply paste of Basil leaves. Take some fresh basil leaves and crush them, make a paste and apply it on the affected area.
Follow this for 1 month and you will get good results.
