Ringworm is a parasitic skin infection caused by a fungus. It can be disfiguring and often causes hair loss. There are several types and variants of the condition and, in certain circumstances, it can lead to scarring and permanent hair loss. Infection can result from direct personal contact or via objects such as hairdressing clippers. Ringworm often reaches near epidemic proportions in schools and is mainly a disease of childhood. It is a serious condition which requires immediate and appropriate treatment. It should not be ignored!
