Ringworm Information

Ringworm is a fungal infection of the skin. Even though it is called "ringworm," a worm doesn't cause it. The cause of ringworm is a fungus that infects the outer layers of the skin.

At first you might just see a small, red, often raised itchy spot or pimple. Sometimes there may only be 1 spot. At other times there may be several. Ringworm can look slightly different on different parts of the body, but there are some things are always present:

Irregular, round, oval or ring-shaped, which is why it's called ringworm, Clearer or lighter color at the center, since it spreads from the center of the spot outward. Red or inflamed look. Raised, itchy, scaly dry or flaky skin.
