Can anyone tell when a person with ringworm is not contagiuos anymore?
I had this as a child. I'd ck w/ your dr to be sure, but I think once the area starts to dry up, you're not contagious anymore. Just to be safe, though, don't let anyone touch the affected area. You have to apply a prescription cream to the area as directed by your physician so the rash doesn't spread. Hope this helps.
I think I've heard you can get ringworm by walking bare foot in grass... Is this true? or am I just hearing things?
That's hookworm. a different parasite
I got ringworm from a lake when I was a child. It wasn't very pretty, but I remember w/ the prescription cream, it cleared up fairly quickly.
