We have seen a 7 years old patient in our Urgent Care Walk in Clinic for a rash of the thigh for one week. The mother of the patient thought that the patient might have a ring worm. Dr. Usha Jain examined the patient and confirmed that it was ring worm. The rash was rounded lesion with redness at the peripheral margins and clearing of the center of the rash. The patient was given a prescription of lotrisone to use for 7 days.
The patient responded well to the treatment and her rash cleared up in 7 days.
