    The prognosis of Tenia corporis depends on several factors like extent and location, hygiene, past treatment taken, etc. In this case long standing fungal infection which was not responding to antifungal treatment got better by Homoeopathy. It shows that Homoeopathy has good scope in these type of skin complaint by preventing recurrences and giving complete recovery even better than Allopathy.
