These healing home remedies for ringworm are natural while over the counter medicated creams often contain a steroid with the anti-fungal medication. Home remedies can carry the same anti-fungal strength without the steroid.
While there are medicines that can cure ringworm, some over the counter, it’s just as effective to use a home remedy.
When you hear of someone with ringworm, you usually think children. It also has the sound of something old fashioned but in truth, ringworm is common in both adults and kids. It can be caught from anywhere that people congregate – gyms, schools, locker rooms – and needs only a little moisture to survive until it finds a new person to infect.
Some home remedies are known antibiotics like colloidal silver and some are astringent in property like ginger. All are known to be anti-fungal. There is also the help of healing from within by taking vegetable juice regularly. One of the most commonly used treatments for many infections is Tea Tree Oil. It’s a staple that should be in every home along with other more common antibiotics.
Applications need to be consistent and your remedy should be either diluted or turned into a paste. Papaya and garlic, two anti-fungal foods, need to be applied as a paste and kept secure with a bandage.
Ringworm occurs most often on scalp, and in the nail bed so you will want something to spread or spray so that it covers the area completely. It’s a fungal disease and will take a few days to obtain relief but relief is definitely available in your own home using natural methods. Read on for a list of known ringworm treatments.
