Homeopathy Medicine for Ringworm
Anyone can get ringworm, which is an ordinary fungus-related skin infection that can result in a ring-shaped rash that is typically itchy and red.
CAUSES OF RINGWORM
- Human to Human –Direct skin-to-skin contact with someone who has ringworm is frequently how it spreads.
- Animal to Human –When petting or grooming dogs or cats, ringworm can spread, and it is also fairly common in cows. Ringworm can be contracted by coming into contact with an animal that has it.
- Object to Human –By coming into contact with objects or surfaces like clothing, towels, bedding, linens, combs, and brushes that an infected person or animal has recently touched or rubbed against, ringworm may be transmitted.
- Soil to Human –It is possible for ringworm to infect humans through contact with infected soil, but this is extremely rare and would most likely only happen after prolonged contact with extremely infected soil.
TYPES OF RINGWORM
In the days when men went to the barber every day for a shave, tinea barbae was known as barber’s itch. It is a ringworm of the bearded area of the face and neck with swelling and noticeable crusting, often accompanied by itching, and occasionally causes the hair to fall out.
Tinea capitis manifests as scalp scaling that is linked to bald spots (in contrast to seborrhea or dandruff, for example, which do not result in hair loss), and is a common condition in children, most commonly in late childhood or adolescence. This condition may spread in schools.
Other conditions that can resemble tinea cruris include yeast infections, psoriasis, and intertrigo, a chafing rash caused by the skin rubbing against the skin. Tinea of the groin (also known as “jock itch”) tends to have a reddish-brown color and to extend from the folds of the groin down onto one or both thighs.
It is important to distinguish this rash from other even more common rashes, such as nummular eczema. This condition, and others, may appear similar to ringworm, but they are not caused by a fungal infection and require different treatment. When fungus affects the skin of the body, it frequently produces the round spots of classic ringworm. Sometimes, these spots have an “active” outer border as they slowly grow and advance.
Tinea manus, also known as tinea manuum, is a common companion of tinea pedis (ringworm of the feet), affecting the hands and often only one hand, causing thickening (hyperkeratosis) of the palms and spaces between the fingers.
In addition to athlete’s foot, tinea pedis is also known as tinea of the foot or, more loosely, fungal infection of the foot. A common form of tinea pedis produces a thickening or scaling of the skin on the heels and soles, which is sometimes referred to as the “moccasin distribution.” In still other instances, tinea causes blisters between the toes or on the sole.
On the face, ringworm rarely takes the form of a ring and typically results in red, scaly patches with fuzzy borders, with the exception of the beard area.
Last but not least, fungal nails, or onychomycosis, is a condition where the fingernails and, more frequently, the toenails become yellow, thick, and crumbly due to fungus.
PREVENTION OF RINGWORM
Common advice along these lines is for men to wear boxer shorts, for women to avoid panty hose, etc. Minimizing sweat and moisture can help prevent fungal infections, but whether these measures, some of which are quite difficult to implement, are really worth all of the effort is open to debate.
