Ringworm is a fungal infection that affects the skin. It is caused by three different types of fungi living in the soil. They are contagious and often spread through infected animals and human beings. The infection causes red worm shaped marks on the skin with itching and irritation. Some patches that develop blisters begin to ooze sometimes. The infections tend to get serious if left untreated. The common treatments for ringworm are antifungal drugs and creams.
