I think if you buy cream for athletes foot (or Jock itch) it treats it!  Just head over to the drug store!

My daughter had it a couple years ago. It is a contact disease. If someone with ringworm touched it and then you touch it, you get it. 

Good news is that is highly treatable.

I have had ringworm before not a major deal.

Just make an appointment and get an anti-fungal, it will be gone shortly (wihtin a week or so)!

Go to any health food storeand get oil of oregano. It’s liquid and you put it on a cotton pad and dab it on the spot. It’s an all natural anti fungal, anti viral, and anti bacterial, so it’s great for all sorts of things! I had ring work last year and did did my dog and I used the oil on Bo of us and it went away super fast!

I had a spot on my arm a few months ago that showed up suspiciously after a friends cat jumped on my lap and rubbed my arm.

 

I just put monistat cream on it… it was the little “external vulvular cream” tube that always comes with the packs, that I had never used because who ever uses all of it?

 

Stopped itching in a day or two and was completely gone in after a week or two.

I have had it.. I got it off my cat when she was a kitten.

I just went to the chemist and got some cream.. it cleared up pretty quick.

Just don’t scratch! It spreads really easily.

@abirdword:  Haha, yeah, it was actually my FI’s good thinking! He was all like, why do you need to get a prescription? You HAVE that same cream already!

Question: Is “ringworm” actually a worm?
