Ringworm

Ringworm is most common in children but can affect anyone. Ringworm appears on the head, body, groin, feet, nails or beard area.

Ringworm is not a worm, but it can look like a worm under the skin it is in fact a number of fungal infections that grow in a patch or circle on the skin. These patches can be a few millimetres to a few centimetres across. The patches or circles usually look red or silvery in colour and can blister and ooze.

Ringworm is caused by fungal spores entering the skin through a break, such as a scratch or a patch of eczema. Ringworm is contagious and can be passed on through direct contact and sharing items such as towels, bedding or combs. It can also be passed on from the floor of shower or swimming pool areas. Pets can pass it to people.

Ringworm should be diagnosed by a doctor or pharmacist and needs to be treated with Antifungal creams, powders or tablets; these are available on prescription or from the pharmacy. Treatments are very effective and are essential to stop the condition spreading. Treatment should be effective in two weeks.
