It is important to note that the term ringworm applies to fungal infections appearing on the skin's surface. Hence your best course of action would be to check with your family physician. This is because a thorough physical examination would be needed; possibly along with analysis of skin scrapings seen under the microscope. Finally culture tests could be used in order to help your doctor to make the proper distinctions.

While you can get a lot of home made and over the counter treatments, remember that a proper diagnosis is crucial if you want successful treatment. The different forms of ringworm would include tinea barbae, tinea faciei, tinea capitis, tinea corporis, tinea manus, tinea cruris and tinea pedis.

Dermatophytes, meaning "skin fungi" are what cause ringworms.
