Home Remedies for Ringworm


Ringworm is a common fungus infection on the skin. It is highly infectious disease and mostly occurs in the scalp, the body, the feet, and the nails. It spreads from the affected person to the person who comes in contact.

Ringworm of the scalp is common among children because of the lack of protective fatty acids in their scalp. The disease spreads on the skin and extends deeper into the hair roots, and also up along the hair. The affected hair becomes dull and breaks off near its root. This leaves bald spots on the scalp.
