Many people ask about a ringworm home remedy. One of the biggest mistakes we see in treatment is trying a home remedy for ringworm. Many people spend months trying home remedies like nail polish, seeds and vegetable juices. Unfortunately, except in rare cases, these home cures for ringworm don’t work. And while you are wasting time using them, your ringworm infection will worsen.

It is very important to start effective treatment immediately before the condition worsens. You need to use a safe and effective treatment, not a ringworm home remedy that won’t help.

Ringworm is a skin infection that is caused by a fungus. 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. It can be passed by direct skin-to-skin contact, or thru contact with contaminated items such as a brush, hat, towel, unwashed clothing, and pool or shower surface. Ringworm can also be caught from an infected cat or dog.

Fortunately there is a very effective ringworm treatment. It is all natural, and the professionals associated with this site highly recommend it.

Now that we have discussed why you shouldn’t use a ringworm home remedy, we will go over the symptoms, and then discuss the best cures for ringworm.

Ringworm signs and symptoms

Ringworm on the skin - usually starts as reddish, scaly patch or bump. It tends to be extremely itchy and uncomfortable. Eventually, it may begin to resemble a ring or a series of rings. It will become raised with bumpy borders around a scaly center. This pattern is what gives ringworm its name. However, not everyone who's infected develops the rings.

Ringworm of the feet - is known as athlete's foot. The rash, which usually appears between the toes, appears patchy or can cause the skin to crack. Usually the rash a person gets with either athlete's foot or jock itch will not look like rings at all.

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. Sometimes, yellowish crusty areas will develop. (Often a home remedy for ringworm will increase baldness).

Ringworm of the nails - can affect several or just one nail on a person's feet or hands. The nails often become thick, yellowish or white, and brittle.

Now that we have gone over the ringworm symptoms, we will discuss the best cure for ringworm. As we have said, there is no ringworm home remedy that is effective.
