It is very important to use an effective ringworm medicine. Many people try a ringworm medication or home remedy that does not work. Using an ineffective medication to treat ringworm allows the fungus to worsen. The worse it gets, the longer it takes for treatment to eliminate the problem.

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. 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 medicine. It is all natural, and the professionals associated with this site highly recommend it.

We will now go over the symptoms, and then discuss the best medication to treat ringworm.

Ringworm symptoms and signs

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. (The ringworm medicine discussed below is effective on all types of ringworm).

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. Our recommended ringworm medication is extremely effective on this type of ringworm.

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. Using an ineffective ringworm medication will increase the 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 ringworm medicine.
