I think my son may have ring worm.


Answer by  Qwitzon (578)

Ringworm looks like a ring-shaped swollen area that looks like worms have crawled underneath the skin. (It is not caused by worms. It's caused by a fungus.) The ring will get larger if left untreated. OTC, topical fungicide will work. But, physicians can provide better treatments that will prevent scaring.
