How Is Ringworm Treated?

Ringworm, despite its name, is not caused by a worm but rather a fungal infection that can affect the skin, nails, and scalp. Our experienced staff will assess the extent of the infection and recommend a ringworm treatment plan personalized to your specific situation and needs.

This plan may include topical antifungal creams, oral antifungal medications, or a combination of both, depending on the severity and location of the infection.

Our healthcare providers will guide you through the ringworm treatment process, ensuring that you are well informed and comfortable every step of the way. While individual cases may vary, by consistently following your ringworm treatment plan, you may see your ringworm start to improve within a few days to a couple of weeks!

While most ringworm cases can be treated with medications, it’s important to seek emergency medical care immediately if severe symptoms such as rapid spread or high fever occur. At QuickFix Urgent Care, your health is always our top priority!

Is Ringworm Contagious?

Yes, ringworm is highly contagious and can easily spread from person to person through direct skin-to-skin contact, contact with contaminated surfaces, or even from pets. Seeking timely and effective treatment is crucial to not only speeding up your own recovery but also making sure the infection does not spread to those around you. Ringworm is known to cause upset stomachs and fevers.

To prevent spread, avoid direct skin contact with others while infected, sanitize frequently touched surfaces to eliminate lingering fungal spores, and refrain from sharing personal items that may carry spores. QuickFix Urgent Care’s qualified team will guide you through steps to effective ringworm treatment and minimizing the chance of spreading the infection to others.

What Are Symptoms of Ringworm?

Recognizing the symptoms of ringworm is essential for early detection and treatment, as well as for effective prevention of further infection spread. Some common symptoms include:

Red, Itchy Skin Patches

Infected areas often appear as red rashes, inflamed patches on the skin. These patches can be itchy and uncomfortable, potentially leading to scratching that worsens the spread.

Clearer Skin In The Center

The center of the ringworm rash might appear clearer than the outer edges, creating a ring-like appearance. This distinct pattern is a hallmark of the infection.

Scaling And Flaking

The infected skin may become scaly and start to flake, leading to skin peeling in some cases. This flakiness can contribute to the shedding of fungal spores to surfaces, potentially infecting others.

Blisters Or Bumps

In some instances, the rash can develop into blisters, abscesses, or raised bumps, causing additional discomfort. These blisters can rupture, potentially spreading the infection further.

Spread And Contagion

Without proper treatment, ringworm can spread to other parts of your body or to others around you. It’s important to avoid scratching the infected area to prevent further spread.

How To Prevent Ringworm

Preventing ringworm involves adopting hygienic practices and being cautious in environments where the infection might be prevalent.

To minimize the risk of transmission, maintain personal hygiene by regularly cleaning and drying your skin, especially in areas prone to moisture buildup.

In environments like gyms or communal showers, consider wearing sandals or flip-flops to protect your feet from potential contamination. Refrain from sharing items like towels, clothing, or sports equipment to prevent spore transfer.

Keep living spaces clean by regularly disinfecting surfaces that come in contact with skin, such as exercise mats and shower floors. If you have pets, ensure they receive proper veterinary care to prevent the spread of fungal infections; regular pet grooming is also advised.
