“What Do Weeds and Ringworm Have In Common?
Everybody knows, If you have weeds in your garden you don’t just trim off the top and expect them to go away. That would be nuts! You know to get rid of them for good you have to get underneath, to the root, right? Ringworm works the same way!

This is a very common mistake. Ringworm is spelled properly as one word not split like ring worm. The later would imply that it actually is a worm rather ringworm is a fungus. Ringworm is a contagious fungus infection that can affect the scalp, the body, the feet (athlete’s foot), or the nails.
People can get Ringworm from: 1) direct skin-to-skin contact with an infected person or pet, 2) indirect contact with an object or surface that an infected person or pet has touched, or 3) rarely, by contact with soil.
Ringworm can be treated with fungus-killing medicine.
To prevent Ringworm, 1) make sure all infected persons and pets get appropriate treatment, 2) avoid contact with infected persons and pets, 3) do not share personal items, and 4) keep common-use areas clean.
What is Ringworm?
Ringworm is a contagious fungus infection that can affect the scalp, the body (particularly the groin), the feet, and the nails. Despite its name, it has nothing to do with worms. The name comes from the characteristic red ring that can appear on an infected person’s skin. Ringworm is also called Tinea.
What is the infectious agent that causes Ringworm?
Ringworm is caused by several different fungus organisms that all belong to a group called “Dermatophytes.” Different Dermatophytes affect different parts of the body and cause the various types of Ringworm:
Ringworm of the scalp
Ringworm of the body
Ringworm of the foot (athlete’s foot)
Ringworm of the nails
