Ringworm (Dermatophytosis) Treatment


Ringworm, also known as dermatophytosis, is a common fungal infection that affects the skin, scalp, or nails. Despite its name, ringworm is not caused by a worm but by various types of fungi. It is generally spread from person to person through physical contact. The “ring” in ringworm is a raised patch of circular skin – the ring – that is usually red and scaly and may itch. Inside the ring, the skin may appear to be healthy, or it could contain patches of small, red bumps. Several rings may appear at one time and the circular borders may intersect.

At the California Dermatology Institute, our dermatology providers specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of ringworm. We understand the discomfort and embarrassment this condition can cause, and we are committed to providing effective dermatophytosis treatment solutions. 

Ringworm treatment may include antifungal medications, either topical or oral, depending on the severity and location of the infection. Our dermatology providers will assess your condition and develop a personalized treatment plan to effectively eliminate the infection and prevent its spread.

In addition to ringworm treatment, our team will guide preventive measures to minimize the risk of reinfection and promote overall skin health.

If you suspect you have ringworm or are experiencing symptoms, we encourage you to book an appointment at the California Dermatology Institute. Our ringworm dermatologist will provide a thorough evaluation, and accurate diagnosis, and develop a tailored dermatophytosis treatment plan to help you find relief.
