BABIES AND RINGWORM

  • What is ringworm? 
    A contagious fungal infection of the skin, ringworm  appears as a circular or ring-shaped rash. It usually begins as a small, itchy, red or scaly patch, and can spread  to other parts of the body including the scalp. At times, several rings appear close together and merge.
  • How can a baby get ringworm?
    A baby probably can get ringworm from an infected person or pet, or touching contaminated  toys or clothes. He could have also got it from swimming in a pool or crawling on infected soil in a garden or park. Excessive sweating, caused by the humidity, increases the chances of picking up ringworm.Make sure to cut your baby’s nails to avoid infecting the rash. Also, try to keep your baby’s skin clean and dry. Try not   to dress your baby in clothes with synthetic fabric or material that can irritate the infected skin.
