Symptoms and Causes

Ringworm infection shows the following symptoms: 

  • Overlapping rings
  • Itching
  • The ring-shaped wound on the affected area (butt, arms, legs)
  • Redness and rash in the ringed area

It can be caused by physical contact with infected persons, contact with animals, and soil-to-human contact if the soil has ringworm. These contact points are the leading cause of the spread.

FAQs About Ringworm

Does ringworm get darker as it heals?

Upon healing, the skin gets brown, not the ringworm. However, the scarring goes away and does not occur in everyone. Usually, it appears as a clear ring on the affected area.

Can I go to urgent care for ringworm?

Ringworm is a fungal infection that can be treated with antifungal medication. However, if it doesn’t cure even with medicine and 14 days have passed, revisit your doctor.

Can I get a prescription online for ringworm?

Yes, an online prescription for ringworm can be delivered to your preferred pharmacy upon a doctor’s consultation online. Book a consultation now with an online doctor and get your treatment for ringworm at Your Doctors Online.

Can I treat ringworm myself?

If ringworm infection is acute, you can self-treat it with an antifungal ointment like clotrimazole and terbinafine, available over the counter. Also, keep the area clean and dry along with the medications.

What is the strongest antifungal cream for ringworm?

The most potent formula to treat antifungal cream for ringworm is terbinafine which comes in different forms, including creams, gels, and sprays. As per CDC guidelines, it is the most effective treatment for killing the causal agent of ringworm, i.e., tinea pedis.

When is ringworm no longer contagious?

After two days, the ringworm becomes non-contagious when you start taking antifungal treatment. It can spread to others if left untreated. As long as the rash lasts, it remains contagious and takes three weeks to recover without treatment.

Should I cover my ringworm when I sleep?

No, you cannot cover the ringworm with a bandage as it delays the recovery because the moisture traps in the bandage, favoring fungus growth. Although it seems like an excellent option to protect other areas from infection, instead, change your clothes and bedding every night to stop the spread.

How is ringworm passed on?

Ringworm can spread from animals and infected persons. Your pets can spread ringworm to you too.

Can you put rubbing alcohol on a ringworm?

Yes, rubbing alcohol can kill the ringworm if it is living over the skin epidermis. However, in most cases, the ringworm is present under the skin, and the alcohol cannot reach there.
