Ringworm, also known as dermatophytosis is a fungal infection of the skin.
“Ringworm” is a misnomer, since a fungus, not a worm, causes the infection. It’s usually a red, itchy, circular rash with clearer skin in the middle.
Over the past few years, there has been a tremendous increase in the incidence of fungal infections, and many people keep getting it over and over again. The main cause for this fungal epidemic is use of over the counter topical creams specially the one containing steroids. Steroids suppress the body immunity to fight the fungus, which keeps on propagating causing repeated infections.
An early diagnosis and timely treatment by a good dermatologist is very important to treat the infection and prevent recurrences as well as spread to other household members.
