Here is more about ring worm:
Ringworm or clinically known as Dermatophytosis is a condition that is brought by fungal infection on the skin. It can be contracted by humans or their pets and similar domestic animals. The fungi that breed on the skin feed on the keratin on the outer layer of the skin, hair and nails. They usually adapt to warm and moist environment and usually survive on hair shafts and even underneath the skin.
The visible symptoms of ringworm are by a blotch raised rings of red patches on the skin that is commonly associated with itchiness. Its spread on the different parts of the body is termed differently but their pathological origins are the same. They are often times common among adult people who engage in contact sports, specifically wrestling and they tend to spread during the summer. The reason of spread around summer is due to the number of people visiting warm areas that are often times exposed simultaneously to heat and moist, like pool sides. Tanning beds, swimming pools and skin folds under the heat of the sun that comes in contact with the skin makes fungi transfer. Storing your towels or make up kits inside locker rooms during your visit to this places are most likely to cause you ringworm. It can be transferred by skin contact or even fabric transfer from one person to another. So be careful when taking a dive or a perfect tan.
In order to avoid being infected with the dermatophytes causing ringworm, it is advised that when enjoying the heat of the sun, avoid being over friendly and accommodating in sharing your clothing, towel sheets and sports equipment. Try washing your clothes in warm water with the use of fungicidal soap if you think you have been exposed to the fungi causing agent or thriving places. Despite the growing hype of walking barefooted when on the beach or at the poolside, make it a habit to put on sandals or shoes to keep you of the elements of heat and moisture and be protected from ringworm. Keep an antifungal kit during the summer, one that you can use during your bath after a potential exposure to infection, like an antibacterial or anti-fungal soap that contains tea tree oil that is known to combat bacterial accumulation on the surface of the skin. Lastly, even if you are fond of pet cuddling, try to avoid pets that have visible bald areas on their body for they are often times potential carriers of fungus.
The treatment of ringworm usually involves topical solutions like tolnafate, miconazole, ketoconazole and cotrimazole. It is done by applying the ointment on the affected area twice a day and for a continuous application in 14 days to. If the growth is persistent you may need to consult your dermatologist for a stronger topical agent or even for a higher dose of medication. Treatment of a simple ringworm should not last more than two weeks, otherwise you may need a more creative and extensive treatment. To avoid the spread of the ringworm, maintain proper hygiene, wash your kin regularly and avoid touching the lesions every now and then as you may accidentally affect other areas of your body.
