Ringworm is contagious and can be picked up from direct contact with an infected person, pets, or contaminated objects, such as combs, brushes, hats, or scarves. Poor hygiene and excess sweating can make it easier for people to catch ringworm.

On the skin, ringworm appears as an itchy, red, ring-shaped patch or rash with scale around the edge. On the scalp, it may appear as scaly patches of hair loss. Scalp ringworm, or tinea capitis, is more common in children. The hair loss is not permanent. Once the fungal infection is treated, the hair should grow back normally.

Ringworm is treated either with anti-fungal creams or pills. Sharing of clothing, towels, brushes, hats, and scarves should be avoided until treatment is complete.
