How do ringworm spread?

KDAH

Ringworm is a contagious skin infection that’s caused by mold-like fungi that live on the dead tissues of your skin, hair, scalp, or nails. Common symptoms include red, scaly patches on light skin or brown or gray patches on skin of color. You may also get bumps which over time turn into ring-or circle-shaped patches. If you get ringworm, use over-the-counter antifungal creams or ointments. Keep the affected area clean and dry, and avoid sharing personal items. If the infection persists or worsens, consult a healthcare professional for further evaluation and treatment. #Ringworm #SkinInfection #FungalInfection #SkinHealth #Dermatology
