Tinea (Ring Worm)

Fungal infection treated effectively through Homoeopathy

Dermatophytosis, also known as ringworm, is a fungal infection of the skin. Typically it results in a red, itchy, scaly, circular rash. Hair loss may occur in the area affected. Symptoms begin four to fourteen days after exposure. Multiple areas can be affected at a given time.

Prevention is by keeping the skin dry, not walking barefoot in public, and not sharing personal items.

Signs and Symptoms

Infections on the body may give rise to typical enlarging raised red rings of ringworm. Infection on the skin of the feet may cause athlete’s foot and in the groin, jock itch. Involvement of the nails is termed onychomycosis, and they may thicken, discolour.

  • red, scaly, itchy or raised patches
  • patches may be redder on outside edges or resemble a ring
  • patches that begin to ooze or develop a blister

Globally, up to 20% of the population may be infected by ringworm at any given time.

Infections of the scalp are most common in children while infections of the groin are most common in the elderly.
