Herbal Remedies for Ringworm

Ringworm is a highly contagious fungal infection of the skin, often of the scalp, feet, nails, and other parts of the body. This fungal infection causes itchy, reddened, ring-shaped patches of skin. Keeping the skin clean and dry will help prevent ringworm.

Apply a cream containing antifungal herbs plus calendula, echinacea, or plantain for their soothing and healing properties. The use of immune stimulants internally can also be useful.
