RINGWORM IN CHILDREN
Ringworm in children is very common. Ringworm is a skin infection that is caused by a fungus (there are no worms). Ringworm can affect the skin anywhere on your body including the scalp, feet (athletes feet), groin area (jock itch) or nails. Often ringworm is found in several places at once.
Ringworm most often affects children, but can affect people of all ages. It is a very common skin disorder, and is very contagious.

Ringworm of the scalp – starts as a small pimple that gets larger and larger. Eventually it becomes patchy, flaky, or scaly. In some people the hair will fall out, leaving scaly patches of temporary baldness. The place where the infection is often becomes swollen, tender, and red.
