What is Ringworm and what causes it?
What Is Ringworm?
Ringworm is a skin infection that is the result of a fungus. The symptoms include a small area of infected skin that then spreads outwards. It usually develops into a circular red patch that looks inflamed and scaly towards the center.
What Causes This Condition?
Ringworm transfers from person to person, i.e. touching an infected person or sharing a towel, amongst other things. It can also come from animals, through fungal infections in their skin.
Fungi are a common cause, and infection can occur for no significant reason, simply from having contact with the fungi in the soil, along with any other contamination from objects you may have come into contact with.
