Ringworm, or dermatophytosis, is a condition caused by a fungal infection of the skin. The fungi feed on parts of the skin, hair, and nails. As such, it can be difficult to remove on your own. Common areas that ringworm affects include the feet and scalp, making them difficult to spot. Ringworm is very easily spread, most commonly in gym locker rooms and other areas where the environment is warm and moist.
While not life-threatening, ringworm can be very difficult to keep at bay even if you currently don’t have the condition. If you do find yourself with ringworm, the constant washing of your body and clothes can be a handful.
