If you have ringworm, it's best to follow a simple daily skincare routine. This will help clear it up and may prevent it from coming back.
Other things to do to help prevent ringworm
- Keep skin clean and dry
- Dry yourself completely after bathing, especially between the folds of skin
- Apply powder to reduce perspiration
- Use your own towel; never share a towel with anyone
- Wash your hands after handling soil, plants or animals
