Ringworm, like athlete's foot, is a fungal skin infection. Ringworm can affect the skin on any area of the body but is most common on the chest, arms, or legs. Despite its name, ringworm is not caused by a worm.1


Ringworm is annoying but usually not serious. Common symptoms include the following1,2:

  • Red, raised, ring-shaped sores
  • The center of the ring may be clear
  • Scaly, crusty, or fluid-filled areas

Ringworm is very contagious
