How a Tiny Patch Grew into a Large Round Circle?

A few weeks ago I noticed a little dry patch of skin under my left ear…kind of on my neck. It’s winter so I just assumed that the dryness of the sahara that was plaguing the rest of my body daily was just a bit of winter showing up on my neck. Nothing to be alarmed about.

So…I went on with my days. And nights.And days. You get the idea.

A couple days ago I was washing my face, brushing my teeth, etc. and noticed the red patch on my skin had now become a circle on my neck. Like a completely round circle.

Felt Like an Apple Riddled Through With Worms…

Given the choice, however, I would still prefer not to host them on my body ­– just as someone who likes stray cats would probably stop short of inviting one into his bed. But I had not been given a choice, or maybe I’d just missed the deadline, and my flesh had been invaded, splattered all over with red-rimmed fungal colonies. I felt like an apple riddled through with worms.

With a bit of early treatment, it might not have progressed that far. But as I was only one malady away from being labeled “Unfit to Travel” by my mother when it first appeared, I purposely ignored the quarter-sized red circle on my left side for the week before my trip. 

When Ringworm Stops you From Doing Your Favorite Things…

I noticed that I got infected right on my chest. Should I compete? Should I cover it? It was a very stressful week until I decided to pull out from the tournament and prevent the spread of infection to other athletes. On top of that, I will have to take a break from the mats until I’m clear. I can’t even surf, because I’m afraid that my wetsuit can get infected.”

Apple Cider Vinegar Does the Wonder…

“Mine is just finally going away! I suspect I got it from a hotel jacuzzi or the gym while wearing shorts. It was right on my bikini line. None of the creams seemed to work and I tried generic and name brand for at least two weeks each. What cleared it up was apple cider vinegar! I noticed a difference in two days as I could tell it was starting to dry up and crack. Yes, it did burn especially on places that were kinda open but the sensation went away after a minute or so. Just had to breathe through it. I rubbed it on with a cotton pad 5x a day for the first week and maybe 3x a day after that. I stopped putting it on a few weeks ago and it hasn’t come back and my skin color is going back to normal (it was kinda dark after healing, like a scar)

I cannot recommend ACV enough and I wish I would’ve tried it sooner! Good luck!”
