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.
