Ask Dr. Gott 2/23

DEAR DR. GOTT: Many years ago, I had a problem with ringworm. (I love cats, and I will pick up a stray anytime.) I have been infected with ringworm many times and had no results with medications prescribed by my doctor. I went to see a company physician for an unrelated matter, and he noticed the ringworm. He advised me to use Mennen Brushless shave cream, regular, several times a day for several days. The ringworm disappeared in no time at all, and I have used it ever since whenever I have another encounter.
