Ringworm should be treated as it really is - a fungus. If the immune system is working up to par, bacterial, fungal, and viral strains could not survive in the body, either internally or externally. The only way to successfully rid oneself of Ringworm is to starve the fungus and kill it internally, and use tropical’s externally. Sugar feeds fungus and disrupts the immune system, allowing micro-organisms to thrive and flourish. Eliminate all sugar (including natural sugars like fruit) processed food, white rice, potatoes, and yeast-breads. Eat a colorful diet packed with vegetables, lean proteins, and almonds and pumpkin seeds that will make the body alkaline (disease cannot survive in a high PH environment) and give the immune system a boost. Make sure to supplement with a potent pro-biotic formula to replenish good bacteria and regulate intestinal flora.
Internally, take an anti-Candida tincture as this will be effective of ridding fungal-related micro-organisms from the inside out. Look for ingredients such as Oregano oil, Olive Leaf Extract, Pau D’arco, Grapefruit seed extract and Garlic. This will work better than the anti-fungal drugs a doctor will prescribe with its many unpleasant side effects because it gets to the root of the problem instead of adding to the problem.
Topically, Tea Tree Oil is the most effective for killing ringworm along with Oregano Oil. Wipe the spot(s) with Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, and then apply with a q-tip Tea Tree Oil and Oregano Oil three to six times a day (diluted with water or undiluted), alternating between the two. Do this until the Ringworm is visibly gone, and even up to two weeks after to make sure any spores left have died.
Over the counter Anti-Fungal creams works good as well, apply as directed, and remember to still use it topically for two weeks after it visibly disappears.
If one has Ringworm of the foot, soak feet in a bucket of a homemade solution of two parts of Apple Cider Vinegar to one part of filtered water for a couple of hours each day and up until a few weeks after the Athletes Foot is gone.
Continue with the internal herbs for up to three to four weeks after the ringworm is gone, so as not to have a recurrence with this irritating, and unsightly infection.
Ringworm is contagious and spreads easily, therefore, limit touching your skin, change bedding and clothes daily and wash clothes in very hot water. Keep house clean and wash surfaces down with a water-vinegar mixture or a water-bleach solution as to kill any spores. Throw away combs, hats ect. that has been contaminated and wash hands frequently especially after touching your infected spot. Also, if you have Ringworm on any part of the body, it would be wise to wash your hair with Selsun Blue or Head and Shoulder’s Intensive Hair Treatment two to four times a week and this will prevent any spores from developing on the hair follicles or scalp as Scalp Ringworm is more difficult to treat and causes temporary balding of the area of hair being infected.
As I’ve had Ringworm that spread over my body, this is the only means I’ve gotten rid of it by and had no re-occurrences in the past five years since I fist came into contact with it.
