Bleach for ringworm, ring worm

Bleach is very good at killing the fungus that is causing the problem. Simply dab the affected are with a cotton ball that has been mistuned with bleach twice a day. The bleach should not burn you, however do look for any allergic reaction. Reports are that the ringworm will be gone in as quick as 2 days.

delute your bleech Comments By: ian crawford on 2011-03-05
your going to leave a burn that looks worse than the ringworm if you dont mix you bleach with water. 1 part bleach and 8 parts water should be adequate
 
Rworm and bleach Comments By: Betty on 2011-03-10
I have used this on my son when he got ring worm from his pony, 25 yrs ago. I have a friend that got 5 spots, i used it on day 2 when they were found. I also used anti itch after the bleach dryed. with in 3 days they are gone.
 
entertaining to say the least! Comments By: too busy to deal with this! on 2011-03-11
ok, so i have read several of these comments and while i'm sympathic with all of them it's almost funny. I guess we don't realize how common something is until we get it! LOL. got a puppy, got 3 kids, got an 'older' boxer, GOT RINGWORM! so i currently have mixed thoughts on the bleach because the lamisil actually worked on my kids. it's completely gone on one of them, almost completely gone on the second one and still got a little work to do on the third but it is working. So, i want it off my dogs! can't really bleach them now can i? I've been using the lamisil on them too but not sure if i'm seeing a difference and i'm using the shampoo the vet recommended as well oral medication for them. It just takes too long, maybe i'm not being patient enough but this has been ongoing for a few weeks now and puppy has had a spot on her head for OVER 2 months....
when is it no longer contagious? When is it ok to handle the animals again?

NO!!! Comments By: Jack Adams on 2011-03-25
Do not do this all it does is fuck your body up even more trust me. just go to the store and buy some anti fungal creme. do not hurt your self even more when it already is bad enough
 
Try athlete foot spray and lotrimin cream together Comments By: Monique on 2011-03-26
Last week I got ringworm for the first time. My sons get it in his scalp and I guess somehow the spores were still around and i contracted it by selfinflicting. I used lotrimin cream for ringworms and athlete foot spray lamisil and it worked. I sprayed like 5 times a day and in between sprays used the cream. It's healed but you still need to continue for four weeks after. Bleach I tried for a day and decided to do my combination instead so I don't know how it would have worked out. Good luck all!! It sucks having ringworms! Don't pop bumps around it it will spead!!!!
 
harsh chemicals....avoid this Comments By: gab on 2011-03-29
hey guys, had ringworm for a while on my inner elbow, didn't even realize for almost a month. don't resort to bleaching your skin! forget those harsh unnatural chemicals....TEA TREE OIL is the answer it is anti-fungal and generally antiseptic, has healing properties, and moisturizes the area! feels good and tingly when you put it on, cools the itching, and in a few weeks your set. also to help along the way, make a salve out of fresh papaya and/or raw papaya seeds, along with some diced or juiced basil, and some diced garlic. strap this on for a few hours a day and use tea tree oil a few times a day=ringworm gone. mother nature has all of the answers. bets of luck in your healing! :)

Used Bleach for Ringworm Comments By: 3 months of ringworm on 2011-04-10
I think I have/had ringworm. I had a semi circle on my hand for about 6 weeks, I tried A&D ointment, neosporin, eucrin, and nothing worked. I went to my regular MD and was dignosed with contact dermitis. I was prescribed a steroid cream, which masked my lesion but never took it away, it calmed the inflamtion but still no cure. So I got anti fungal cream and used as directed, twice a day for 4 weeks, and still nothing! I am/was convinced it was ringworm and am/was desperate for it to go away. I have read many sites stating bleach works, so last night I gave it a try. I didn't dilute it, and just applied it to a cottonball, at first it didn't burn, but then it slightly did, I didn't rinse but did apply my steroid cream to calm the redness and inflamation, I did it once more about 3 hrs later. It is extremly red and really irritated, it feels like a regular burn.So now I'm just waiting to see the results.

public jacuzzi Comments By: MiamiNiceShyGuy on 2011-05-30
Ok .. say you have a fungus among us ...
outbreak ... under your arm pits .. crotch rot ... toe jam fungus (stinky feet)
Fungus behind your ears .. between your legs
on your neck ... on your back....

There is an easier way to go thank mixing
up a batch of homemade brew .. bleach bath.

Go take a Sauna .. then after you are all sweaty just walk into a public jacuzzi and
sit there for as long as you can take it.

I really don't like the heat, but they put
so much Chlorine with fungicide in all public jacuzzi that you will smell it on your skin for sure when you come out.

This is good advice .. plus .. make sure you wash everything with a touch of bleach, even colored clothes .. you have to do it or it will come back !!!
