Homeopathic approach for the treatment of Tinea Corporis:

Homeopathy is effective for chronic Tinea corporis. However, as the disease gets older, it tends to get more resistant to any form of treatment. Also, once you use anti-fungal cream for many months or years, this infection becomes more resistant and difficult to treat. Homeopathy is strongly indicated for Tinea corporis.
