Ringworm is caused by a fungi, dermatophyte, which is parasitic in nature, in other words, it will feed on the keratin found in your hair, nails, and most importantly skin.
This fungus is going to develop in warm and moist areas of your skin and one of the best ways to get rid of it is by using antifungal remedies, but these tend to be very strong on the body because they tend to cause numerous side effects.
And this is the reason why I highly recommend that you start using neem oil for ringworm; it’s very efficient and very safe as well.

How to use neem oil for ringworm?
There are many techniques you can use in order to get ringworm out of your skin using neem oil, but most of them are never going to work efficiently if you do not take good preventive measures against these very disturbing and annoying fungi.
As mentioned before, dermatophyte fungi will proliferate in moist and warm areas of your skin, and this is the same condition where you are going to catch it in the first place, in moist and warm areas, such as locker rooms, swimming pools and tanning beds, so, if you are suffering from ringworm, my first advice is to avoid such places, especially if they are public, as you will get re-infected easily again!
The next preventive measure you should really start to take is to never share your towels, or clothes with other people, you can infect them while also being re-infected by them if they have ringworm!
You should also:
- Wash your clothes using hot water and use also fungicidal soap if you suspect that they are contaminated with ringworm fungi.
- Never walk barefoot, always wear protective footwear.
- Avoid pets with bald spots on their skin as they may infect your skin as well.
- Use an antibacterial and antifungal soap to wash your hands and skin often.
