Ringworm Awareness

Ringworm is a common concern in environments such as a wrestling gym where it can spread very quickly from person to person so early recognition and treatment are important. Ringworm is a fungal skin infection that is usually a red, itchy, circular rash with clearer skin in the middle. Ringworm gets its name because of its appearance and no worm is involved.
