I get asked all the time, “What is the best cure for Ringworm?”
There are many cures, treatments and home remedies available at your disposal.
While most doctors prescribe some type of weird fungus cream or medication, this isn’t always the best route and can do more harm to your body than good. Think about it, anything that isn’t natural and is made up of chemicals isn’t going to nourish and provide your body with the strength it needs.
The worst thing you can do is to “sit and wait” for it to magically heal on it’s own. When people do this, they’re often in for a lot more pain and discomfort than they need to go through. You want this Ringworm condition over and done with quickly, so that you can move on with your life and have this be something of the past.
Over the years I’ve spent studying and researching Ringworm, I’ve tested almost every treatment and remedy available on the market. I began exploring home-made remedies, as they are more ideal for your body, are inexpensive, and have been around for centuries. You’d be amazed at what our planet provides us and the power these natural ingredients can have in healing our bodies.
I’ve broken down the cure for Ringworm into several steps:
1) Treat the rash immediately by getting rid of any itchiness, discomfort and pain. I suggest bathing procedures for this, which are mentioned in my Fast Ringworm Cure e-book program. A bath, combined with special home remedies and ingredients, can get rid of all symptoms quickly and begin healing the rash rapidly.
2) Use natural creams, lotions, or even oils on the rash. This will help kill the fungus and heal the rash quickly. There are certain ingredients, such as special oils, honey, and many others that have powerful healing affects.
3) Strengthen the immune system and body so that it can naturally fight off any infection and heal the body from the inside out. This is often something overlooked, as most people think of a skin condition as an external thing. But by consuming the right foods, while avoiding others, you can heal Ringworm much faster. Certain supplements that your body may be deprived of are key. Not only that, but a strong immune system and body means that you won’t have to worry about getting Ringworm, or any other condition for that matter, again in the future.
The important thing is to make sure that you’re taking action to cure Ringworm as fast as possible. This article provides some ideas on how to cure Ringworm quickly and effectively, it’s now up to you to apply the home remedies and treatments for best result.

Ringworm is one of the most common diseases in pets, especially dogs. Unlike its name ringworm in dogs it´s not actually a worm but a fungi called Dermatophytes that thrives on dead tissues present on skin surface and follows circular path to spread infection.
Ringworm is an infectious skin disease and your pet usually picks it up from his surroundings like kennels, rodent burrows or from other animals who are already infected. There are about 35 species of ringworm that can affect dogs. The most common is ‘Mircosporum Canis’, whic accounts for majority of ringworm cases.
Diagnosis of ringworm in dogs Infection
The common dog illness ringworm has several different ways to be detected and diagnose. The common way to detect ringworm is with a black light. The ringworms glow in the black light when the light hits them. Sometimes this practice does work and a vet will perform another test to detect ringworm.
Signs of Having ringworm in dogs
If you see small areas of the body without hair, chances are your dog has ringworm. The skin will appear scaly and display pus in the area. After time the areas become larger when they receive no medical treatment. You will notice this parasite on the tail, head and leg.
One symptom of ringworms in dogs is a lesion on the skin that looks like a rapidly growing circular patch of broken hair. The patch may look inflamed and may appear to have dandruff-like flakes on it. The most common areas where it can occur are face, ear tips, tails and paws.
If you find any of these symptoms, take your pet to the veterinarian. He may diagnose the disease by plucking hairs from the infected area and examining it under ultra violet light. On finding fungi traits, he may advise some anti fungal pills or topical medications for your pet.
Humans need to take some precautions since ringworm is an infectious disease. Be sure to keep kids away from an infected pet, and adults should wear gloves when handling any items that have come in contact with the animal. Also keep your dog neat and clean and clip his hairs short since longer hairs promote unhygienic conditions.
Although, ringworm is a mild disorder the problems due to its infectious nature and slow recovery time can be problematic.
If your dogs at home have ringworm, then it is not impossible tat you too could possibly be infected by it. Ringworm is a skin infection caused by a group of fungi called “dermatophytes”. These ringworm causing fungi prefer to live on human and animal skin. Why? It is because dermatophytes feed on keratin and keratin can mostly be found on areas of the body such as nails, scalp, feet as well as the groin. Keratin is not only found on humans but animals as well suc as cats, dogs, sheep and cattle. They also love to live on areas that are warm and moist.
If your dog is healthy then the ringworm will clear up by itself in about four months. However, when severe cases exist, medical treatments are required. If your dog as the lesion, clipping the hair around the area is needed will help but do not touch the lesion or it will spread. Apply a tropical anti fungal cream after clipping the hair away. Such creams like miconazole and lotrimin creams are used for this purpose. Do not let the dog lick the area where you apply the cream. A dog funnel collar may be required to prevent the dog from reaching the area.
Before you get any of those fungal infections, it is best if you get them off your dogs as soon as possible.
Here are ways on how to get rid of ringworm in dogs:
• Trim. But please, if you do not know how to give your pup a haircut, don’t even think about it! As much as possible, have an expert do it since dog hairs are much more delicate than human hair. If you see any ring on your dog’s skin, use electric clippers to remove the hair from that part so that it will be easy for you to treat the affected area especially with the use of ointments. The medication will take effect on the ringworm directly because there would be no dog hair to block it. Avoid using a pair of scissors since this will only leave cuts on your dog.
• Wash. Give the affected area a good wash with the use of anti-fungal soap or antiseptic soap that contains povidone iodine and chlorhexadine like Betadine Skin Cleanser. Washing will prevent the spread of the fungus on other areas of your dog’s body.
• Shampoo. It is best to shampoo your dog’s hair every other day with the use of 0.5% chlorhexidin shampoo, 2% miconazole shampoo or ketoconazole shampoo. These shampoos will help get rid of the lesions and will help your dog’s hair grow back.
• Creams and Ointments. When it comes to treating dogs, it is best to use creams and ointments. However, it is still recommended that you take your dog to a veterinarian first before using any OTC creams and ointments. It is important to have a proper diagnosis of your dog’s condition in order to provide an effective treatment.
• Griseofulvin. Griseofulvin is a drug in tablet form that should be administered daily for 30 days. Most veterinarians prescribe this drug over OTC creams and ointments. Every administration should be followed by fatty food or any meat.
Your vet can diagnose for ringworm in dogs through several different means: laboratory tests, microscopic examination of hair, a hair culture, or through the use of a special fluorescent lamp. Once diagnosis is confirmed treatment will begin.
You will also be instructed to clean your home thoroughly. Since the fungus spores can live in carpet, bedding, etc… You will want to steam clean carpets and wash all bedding and other items that were contaminated. Wherever possible, using a bleach cleaning solution. Also, it’s best to ϳust throw away disposable items that can be replaced instead of risking exposure to ringworm in dogs. Your goal is to decontaminate your environment as best as you can.
