When I was pregnant I had gotten ringworm on my leg. I believe I got it from using a public shower at a campground over the summer, but I wasn't 100% sure. Since I was pregnant I really didn't want to use a prescription. I did some research and found that raw garlic has healing properties in it that cure ringworm. I rubbed it on the ringworm everyday for a week and it was gone.
If you do not want to use a prescription cream, the garlic cloves worked as a natural cure for me.
Wow, I had never heard of this before. When one of the little ones got ringworm, we just immediately went with a prescription to get rid of it. I didn't even think about treating it at home. Then again, I doubt they would've wanted to go to school smelling like garlic the whole week either. :P
How long did you have to use the garlic before it went away?
I am not sure if this would really work or not but I have read that vinegar mixed with water and applied to the infected part can cure ring worms. As far as I have read, you have to apply it for 2 weeks and it will cure you of the itch. How one can bear with the smell though, I don't know.
I wonder why you'd have to mix the vinegar with water? It seems like it would work better undiluted.
My grandmother swears she got rid of her ringworm by putting peroxide on it a few times a day.
I also think that using plain vinegar would work better than diluted down with water. It would be stronger, and it wouldn't take as long to heal. I will definitely keep these tips in my back pocket. You never know when they might come in handy!
I read somewhere that you can use Apple Cider Vinegar to naturally cure ringworms. I'm not to sure about the the mixture to water or how long you are suppose to leave it on the affected area.
I also read that you can use bleach to kill it. I dont know if I would try that. Sounds a little riske. Maybe even harmful.
I was brought here in search of information about my dogs and wondering if ringworms can be passed from dogs to humans. I am happy to hear that the garlic really worked. I also know that Apple Cider is recommended for several things as well. I am glad I found this.
Thank you for sharing your experience and I am sure it really work for everyone. Garlic is one of very effective element and It can cure some other diesease. My cousine has ringworm on her skin and now I will suggest her to use medicine of Garlic which you have used.
