How do you cure ringworms?

The biggest help in curing ringworms is the fact that they show up on skin and because of this, no time is wasted in beginning with treatment. Ringworms can be killed using surface tactics. Apply concentrated organic vinegar to the surface of the skin where you see a telltale red ring. Doing this at least six times a day each day will take care of the ringworm within a week. Sometimes, it may kill the ringworm within a day. You can also rub tea tree oil on the ringworm. Tea tree oil is considered very useful in taking care of any kind of infection.

Horseradish is also considered very useful for the rapid speed with which it kills ringworms. You can place slices on the ringworm and tape them down for about an hour each time. It is also beneficial to eat horseradish. You can also run a mix of sea salt and lime to get rid of this unsightly problem. Rubbing raw garlic on the ringworm will kill it. To sanitize your skin, keep applying rubbing alcohol till a couple of days after the ringworm is gone. Another sanitizing measure you can use is to rub the area with hydrogen peroxide. Both ways will help you. Dabbing some toothpaste will also make ringworm disappear.
