Ringworm disease can be embarrassing, especially if it shows. Nobody likes to walk around with a rash on their body particularly if they can’t hide it. Ringworm disease is pretty common. About 20% of the world has this disease right now. There’s nothing to worry about, but you do have to take care it promptly before it spreads.
How infectious is Ringworm disease?
Ringworm can easily be transferred from one person to the next. You can even spread it yourself by touching the infected area and then touching another part of your body. The best thing to do would be to apply some anti fungal cream and cover it up.
How do I Cover Ringworm Disease?
The first thing to do is go to your local drug store and pickup some antifungal cream such as Lamisil or Lotrimin. Apply it to the infected area as directed and position a bandaid on the spot. If someone asks, you can just tell them you cut yourself in the kitchen or something similar. Every time you need to reapply the antifungal cream, be sure to throw out the used bandaid and place a new one on the rash to cover ringworm. Remember, if you cover ringworm you will lower the risk of spreading the disease.
But the ringworm is on my scalp!
If you have ringworm on your scalp then the only way to cover ringworm is to use a hat. Use whatever medication the doctor or pharmacy staff suggested and cover it up with a hat. It is critically important that you do not share the hat with anyone else since there is a very high risk of passing on the disease.
