It is very important to be aware of the ringworm symptoms. This page contains information about the ringworm symptoms, how it spreads, prevention, and the best ringworm treatment.

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, pool or shower surface. Ringworm can also be caught from an infected dog or cat.

Ringworm 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.

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 symptoms, we will go over prevention and the best ringworm treatment.

Ringworm prevention

Unfortunately, ringworm is hard to prevent. The fungus is extremely common, and is contagious before even the symptoms appear. The following things can help prevent the spread of ringworm.

  • Education. It is important to be aware of how it spreads, and that it can be caught from people or pets.
  • Try to keep common use areas as clean as possible. This includes gyms, locker rooms, bathrooms, etc. Disinfect mats and gym equipment after each use.
  • You must not share towels, hairbrushes, shoes, clothing or other personal items.
