How to Get Rid of Ringwoms

Ringworm According to Wikipedia Dermatophytosis is a clinical condition caused by fungal infection of the skin in humans, pets such as cats, and domesticated animals such as sheep and cattle.

The term “ringworm“, commonly used to refer to such infections, is a misnomer, since the condition is caused by fungi of several different species and not by parasitic worms. The fungi that cause parasitic infection (dermatophytes) feed on keratin, the material found in the outer layer of skin, hair, and nails. These fungi thrive on skin that is warm and moist, but may also survive directly on the outsides of hair shafts or in their interiors. In pets, the fungus responsible for the disease survives in skin and on the outer surface of hairs.

There are many ways to cure ringworm and there are so many topical ointment that can help cure this skin problem, but the only thing I have observed about this skin problem is that it strives on moisture.  Yes You have to keep the infected area dry all the time and apply certain topical ointment such as miconazole, terbinafine, clotrimazole, ketoconazole, or tolnaftate .

I have been researching about the fastest way I have  cured this skin problem, it might not work for everybody but it certainly worked form me.  I got this when I went to Hawaii sometime ago and it was really annoying and irritating. It was very itchy and you can  not help but scratch all the time. This lead me to buying different topical treatment ointment but it started to grow, from the size of a dime and became the size of a quarter,  but those topical ointment did not work.

Again, I made an intensive research, and came to the conclusion that if this ringworm likes moisture and being wet, then I have to do something that will keep it sealed and dry.  Then I tried using the waterproof transparent dressing, it somehow contained the growth and spread of the ringworm but did not really killed the fungus.

Then I thought of using a clear nail polish and voila! found the cure and it worked like a champ!

In about 3 days I saw the improvement from my skin and a week it was totally gone.

Disclaimer:  This treatment is based on my personal experience and may not work for everybody.  Consulting your doctor is still the best option in treating any skin problems.  Nail Polish may be harmful if applied on the face for it can actually burn sensitive skin.  So please be very careful.
