Dermatophytosis or Tinea infection is a common skin problem frequently encountered in general practice. Although several antifungal drugs are prescribed for complete eradication of the stubborn contagious infection, some species are reciprocators to these antifungal agents which causes a rise in the number of resistant Tinea infections. Recurrent Tinea
Corporis (RTC) is becoming an emerging problem nowadays. The present case report is a compilation of two diagnosed cases of RTC of more than 9 months. These two cases were treated in the OPD of the National Research Institute of Unani Medicine for Skin Disorders (NRIUMSD), Hyderabad with classic principles of Unani by Itrifal Shahtara (Polyherbal
Unani Formulation) for oral intake and Marham Kharish Jadeed as a local application over a period of 12 weeks with regular follow-ups for assessment of symptoms. After 12 weeks of therapy, complete resolution in the first case and markedly resolution in the second case; in the number of lesions, severity of itching and erythema is observed. In this study, the prescribed Unani Medicines have been efficiently managed due to their anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, free radical scavenging, analgesic and wound-healing properties.
