What is Ringworm?
Also known as Tinea, Ringworm is a common fungal infection that most generally affects the skin on the body, scalp, feet or groin. Contradictory to the name, Ringworm is not due to worms, but actually a fungus that causes a ring-shaped rash that can be itchy and red as well as blister or ooze. It is a highly contagious infection that can be spread through contact with an infected person, animal or object. It can also commonly occur amongst those that sweat a lot as the fungus thrives in hot and damp conditions.
