Ringworm Explained

Ringworm is a common fungal infection that can affect the skin, scalp, and nails. Despite its name, ringworm is not caused by a worm but rather by a group of fungi known as dermatophytes. These fungi thrive in warm and moist environments, making them particularly prevalent in areas such as locker rooms, swimming pools, and communal showers.

Ringworm is highly contagious and can be spread through direct skin-to-skin contact with an infected person or animal, as well as through contact with contaminated objects or surfaces. In this blog, we will delve into the risks, symptoms, and prevention of ringworm, as well as provide insights into its management and treatment.
