Ringworm Candida Treatment

It is a misconception that ringworm is actually worms in your body, that is not true. It is a fungus which can form circular or ring like patterns on your skin, usually red, but it can be your own skin color. Having ringworm does not necessarily Candida, but it can mean you have Candida overgrowth in your body. It is a fungal infection, and fungus is everywhere. According to webmd, ringworm is a dermatophyte, which is a fungus on your hair, skin, or nails, but Candida is an actual yeast http://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/features/ringworm-or-candida. The fungus tends to differ, but the treatment remains the same.

Treatment begins with identification, and ideally when it first begins. When you first notice that you have ringworm, it might look like a mosquito bite, and itch like a mosquito bite, but it won’t go away, and will progressively get bigger. From there other bumps can form around the same area, especially if you scratch and touch other parts of your skin.

To treat ringworm, make sure you properly shower, at least twice a day, and apply an antifungal, natural (tea tree oil, apple cider vinegar), or use a commercial antifungal. If you use the commercial antifungal apply it using directions, but if you’re using a natural antifungal, I prefer to continue the treatment until at least 1 week after it is gone. One important tip to remember is to change your towels after each use to avoid spreading your ringworm to other areas.

If you wish to take it further, consider an entire diet change. That would be the most ideal way for treatment.
