The Bottom Line
The Lotrimin Antifungal Ringworm Cream proves to be a safe and affordable treatment for fungal infections. Unfortunately, it does not offer the level of effectiveness that one would need in order to eliminate fungal infections quickly and completely. Yes, it does help treat fungal infections but it will be a slow process. There are other, more effective and fast-acting products out there that you can try out if you are looking for a fast-acting antifungal treatment.
