Ringworm is a type of skin infection, which iscaused by a fungi. Fungi thrive in warm, moist areas, such as locker rooms and swimming pools, and in skin folds. The fungi may be present without any symptoms.

Advice often given to prevent ringworm includes:

  • Avoidance of sharing clothing, sports equipment, towels, or sheets.
  • Washing of clothes in hot water with fungicidal (fungus-killing) soap after suspected exposure to ringworm.
  • Avoidance of walking barefoot, wearing of appropriate protective shoes to the beach and flip-flops in locker rooms.
  • After being exposed to places where the potential of being infected is great, one should wash with an antibacterial and anti-fungal soap or one that contains Tea Tree Oil, which contains terpinen-4-ol which is thought to be the cause of the antimicrobial activity seen in it, and has been noted for the successful treatment of fungal infections.
