Buy disposables or let your beard grow out.
I'm still treating mine, but I wouldn't recommend bandaging. Fungus doesn't like dry places, so it seems to me that leaving it exposed to the dry air would be better.
Does yours look like this? Shiiiittttt. I just went to walmart and I was going to pick up some lamicil or some creme for it and decided I probably don't have ringworm.
My reasoning was the following:
1) it doesn't itch
2) I have absolutely no idea how I could have gotten it...years of my life I have spent grappling and now that I am fat and lazy I get it, doesn't seem likely.
3) I went to town today on my beard with a buzzer before I shaved and my chin was the hardest spot to buzzer (so I was buzzing it pretty hard)
4) I think the spots are lightening up.
Anyway, now that you say that yours doesn't itch, it makes me worry. But worse comes to worse, I will check it out tomorrow, see how it looks and feels, and then take it from there.
