Ringworm, a fungal infection of the skin, can be difficult to detect in the early stages. And it is during the early stages when using a ringworm treatment is most important so that the infection stays mild and therefore is easier to treat. So if we can recognize the symptoms, we can know when and how to cure ringworm…
Symptoms of ringworm include:
- Itchy, red, raised, scaly patches that may blister and ooze.
- The patches tend to have sharply-defined edges.
- Red patches are often redder around the outside with normal skin tone in the center. This may look like a ring.
If ringworm affects your hair, you will have bald patches.
If ringworm affects your nails, they will become discolored, thick, and even crumble. This condition is known as nail fungus and will specifically require a toenail fungus treatment.
