Home Ailments Ringworm


Ringworm is a relatively common fungal infection – it has absolutely nothing to do with worms. Ringworm can appear anywhere on the body, and its main symptom is a reddish or silver looking rash which can be scaly, dry itchy or even swollen. Ringworm is easily treated with over the counter anti-fungal Ringworm creams that can be applied topically to the affected areas. To make sure the fungal infection is well and truly eliminated, these creams often need to be applied multiple time a day over a number of weeks. After applying the anti-fungal Rignworm cream as instructed, the Ringworm will quickly disappear.
