Ringworm of the body (fungus corporis) is a rash brought about by a parasitic infection. It's typically a red, irritated, roundabout rash with more clear skin in the centre. Ringworm gets its name as a result of its appearance. No worm is included.

Description And Symptoms

Ringworm of the body is identified with athlete's foot, muscle head itch (fungus cruris) and ringworm of the scalp. Ringworm often spreads by direct skin-to-skin contact with an infected person or creature.

Mellow ringworm frequently reacts to antifungal medications that you apply to your skin. For more-extreme diseases, you may need to take antifungal pills for a little while.

  • A flaky ring-moulded region, ordinarily on the buttocks, trunk, arms and legs
  • Itchiness
  • A clear or flaky region inside the ring, maybe with a dispersing of red knocks
  • Slightly raised, extending rings
  • A round, flat patch of itchy skin
  • Overlapping rings
