How do make a paste with mustard seed to cure my son's ringworm on his head? Also I heard you could use chewing tobacco for this as well. Is this safe for my child's head though?

Ringworm can cause discomfort and make you feel as though you are contaminated. For the ringworm infection on your son's head you can try some easy home remedies. Applying apple cider vinegar is one of the easiest of home remedies. You will need to dip a clean cotton swab in the liquid and apply it to the affected area. Do this as often as possible. You can also try using the lime treatment to get rid of the ringworm. Cut a lime. Heat it on the flames of your gas. Apply this to the infected area. Your son may complain of some stinging pain. Leave the lime juice on the affected patch. You can do this at least thrice in a day. However, if the infection is very bad and shows signs of spreading to other parts of your son's body, you should consult your doctor at once.

You can use raw papaya to effectively treat the infection. Cut off a slice of the papaya and apply this on the affected patch. If you can lay your hands on dried papaya seeds you should make a paste of this and apply on the infected area. A pate made of mustard seeds is also beneficial when applied on the ringworm infection.
