Although its name suggests a parasite infection, ringworm is an extremely common fungal infection that affects the skin, nails and scalp.
One of the tell tale signs of ringworm is the appearance of patches of red rings on the skin surface. These rings have a bumpy texture with scaly borders and a white center which may look like blisters. The center area usually becomes crusty and outer edges become inflamed and spread outwards.
Did you know papaya is one of the most effective home remedies for ringworm? Simply rub slices of raw papaya on the ringworm patches at least 3-4 times a day for a week.
