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.

Scalp Ringworm Comments By: KellieDS on 2007-01-13
I have been doing the bleach for about 3 days now. It feels a whole heap of a lot better than before really less itching. I just dont know how long I should use the bleach solution I figure about 5 days? Someone with experience help please.
 
fact: diluted bleach kills fungus Comments By: karen on 2007-01-17
I have five ringworm patches on my leg-started with one a few months ago and it spread because the clotrimazole and lamisil is too lame to kill the fungus. used Lysol Mildew Remover which contains bleach (only 2% sodium hyperchlorite) in diluted form and is working very well. I spray it on a cotton ball, rub the area and surrounding skin very well (as the fungus may be living and spreading before you see symptoms), let it dry and do not rinse. You don't need to use straight bleach--it is unnecessarily strong and will burn (and possibly scar). Be sure yo are washing your clothes and bed sheets often!--use bleach if you can or dry them in hot dryer to kill the fungus.
 
TRIED IT!!!! Comments By: JESSICA on 2007-02-08
I tried the bleach just now. I have had the fungus for about 3 weeks now and not a single improvement with those anti fungal creams but let me tell you, I do think bleach works feeling a lot better now. Will keep on for the next 3-5 days.

 
Bleach does work Comments By: Meena on 2007-02-20
I have used bleach before and had forgotten about that home remedy. I just tried it again and it does dry out the ringworm, but will leave a scar. What's worse, a scar or a fungus? I can use vitamin e oil or cocoa butter on the scar. Ringworm is just nasty!
 
Thank God for home remedies Comments By: D. A. on 2007-04-14
I picked up this fungus from work. I worked in a damp, dusty and dark environment. I am not a big sock wearer. and I caught it. I've had it for almost a year. It's spread only to my ankle and the other foot has caught it too. I used Lamisil...Failure...I was going to get an oral treatment but my PCP said that it will effect my liver. So a lady at work and I were discussing house cleaning and hygiene and she told me that she puts a cap full of bleach in her water. I asked her "Does bleach kill germs on the body too? She said, "Yeah, it kills everything."

And reading this information was confirmation. Finally I can get this thing off of me. I tried it for the first time today. There was a slight burn. After a few minutes I rested my foot beneath the faucet. Even now, I see a progressive change. This is great. I can't wait to see what it looks like in few hours from now (and a few days from now too)

Best Cure EVER Comments By: Johnny on 2007-05-13
First off, to that gay dude: You're an idiot, HAahaAH. No common sense; bleach near genitils, umm LOOSER--I got a good laugh out of that one.
Bleach (don't dilute BE A MAN) works well with some kind of natural cure added over. Tree tea oil, grape seed extrat, garlic juice, vinegar, almond oil, neem oil, ginger root, etc. works good. First apply bleach and five minutes later saturate the area with the natural stuff. Works miracles. Gone with 3 days tops.

Money & Time Saver Comments By: anon on 2007-06-07
We treated our dog with expensive medicated shampoo 2X/week, used perscription strength cream and oral meds from the vet for two months! I read about the bleach and tried it. It was gone in 3 days. It did burn the first couple of times, so I would rinse it after a minute with cool water. It dried right up and flaked off. Once the ringworm is gone, it no longer hurts. My daughter had it also, but hers went away with the Monistat cream. FYI: My daughter has a white scar remaining but it was NOT from the bleach.
 
NO Pain no Gain Comments By: Segun on 2007-06-17
Im using the bleach treatment again because it works. I believe i tried it years ago and it worked. So here i am again with it on my feet.

I recommend going 100% bleach
When you use bleach on bathroom fungus or mold u see how fast it works. Its just as effective on any other fungus.

yeah it burns but. NO PAIN NO GAIN.
