You can get a fungal reaction on any part of your body such as your scalp, the feet or even on your privates. If you get such an infection on your face, then it is known as tinea faciei. They are prevalent among the little ones but adults get them too.

This is a circular patch that is scaly and is either pink or red. It can be itchy especially when exposed to direct sunlight. What’s more, they cause hair to fall off and this leaves you looking weird.

Ringworms spread fast to other parts of the body and it’s important to seek medical attention. Your doctor will prescribe an antifungal cream that eliminates the infection in 4 to 6 weeks. You can use the following home remedies instead as they are effective and don’t present any side effects.
