WHAT IS RINGWORM?
“Ringworm” is a misnomer for this affliction. Despite the name, it is not a worm at all, or even a parasite. Rather, ringworm is a fungal infection of the skin. Symptoms may include patchy bald spots and lesions, reddened skin, itchiness and dandruff. Sometimes, pets may carry the ringworm fungus without presenting any symptoms at all.
