ring worm is very common, easy to catch from puppies and children who's hygiene is not as good as ours. Its easy to treat with a power that you mix and drink bought from your pharmacy treat the whole family two doses and continue with basic hygiene washing your hands after using the bathroom


melindarix@sbcglobal.net
ringfworms are HIGHLY contagious, you can do to work if you can put a bandage over the ringworm. The are pasted person to person very easyly. So you need to make sure you use the medications for as long as you are suppose to, wash your hands alot and keep it covered.

Ringworm is infectious. It is best that you stay home.

Why would you want to do that? Not nice spreading ringworm.

Apparently ringworm is highly contagious and you should be quarantined for a minimum of 5 days


Montee P
Yes, you can spread ringworm, however, if you cover it up and wash your hands after touching it ( rubing or puting oiment on it)
You could go to work.


gangadharan_nair
Ringworm is contagious. It can be passed from one person to the next by direct skin-to-skin contact or by contact with contaminated items such as combs, unwashed clothing, and shower or pool surfaces. You can also catch ringworm from pets that carry the fungus. Cats are common carriers.
The fungi that cause ringworm thrive in warm, moist areas. Ringworm is more likely when you have frequent wetness (such as from sweating) and minor injuries to your skin, scalp, or nails.
Ringworm usually responds well to self-care within 4 weeks without having to see a doctor.
Please see the webpages for more details on Ringworm.

No excuse for skiving work. Unless you're in intimate contact with your colleagues or exchange clothing they're unlikely to catch it from you. Even if they do it's easily treated (and not really serious). Take precautions like not using a communal towel or sharing overalls.

Yes it is contagious. It really depends what work you do I suppose...if you are in direct physical contact with people then I'd probably ask the doctor.

I should think that as long as you keep clean and feel well enough to do so, then you are perfectly fine to go to work.

Ring worm is contacted by direct skin to skin contact. You may go to duty.


richard_beckham2001
Ringworm is a contagious fungus infection that can affect the scalp, the body, the feet (athlete's foot), or the nails.

People can get Ringworm from: 1) direct skin-to-skin contact with an infected person or pet, 2) indirect contact with an object or surface that an infected person or pet has touched, or 3) rarely, by contact with soil.
Ringworm can be treated with fungus-killing medicine.
To prevent Ringworm, 1) make sure all infected persons and pets get appropriate treatment, 2) avoid contact with infected persons and pets, 3) do not share personal items, and 4) keep common-use areas clean.

yes you can spread it so stay at home


Celi
I'm not sure...I think your best solution is to ask your doctor. Tell him exactly what you just wrote and see how it goes. I hope you will feel better soon, take care.


Deviant ART
Of course you should wait 3 more days or you will probably be fired for spreading the ringworm to another people.Trust me.Job don't grow on tree you know.


mullet3k
you can go, as long as you dont work where you will come into contact directly with the other people!!

Go Wing's
All you need to know is YES !!! If you had a kid in school they would make you pull the kid out until it's healed.. take the link below to find out how to treat. And how it is spread..


UVRay
Yes, you can spread it to people and no, you shouldn't go to work tomorrow. Just wait until it at least dies down or is almost gone.

You can only get it if someone touches your skin where the ring worm is. So as long as you don't come into direct contact others will no catch it.


Carry C
You may go back to work as long as you have started treatment for your condition. But.....if you wanted the extra time off you could tell your employer you need to make sure the antifungal cream has taken affect so you won't be exposing your co-workers to possible infection lol.


nimo22
You do NOT have to have direct skin to skin contact to spread ringworm, so it might be best if you took a few days off. I know someone who got ringworm on her stomach and didn't know how she got it. The Dr. told her that she could have gotten it from brushing up against something that someone with ringworm could have brushed up against. Make sure you continue the treatment even after the ringworm appears to be gone, it should be used for several weeks I believe. If you stop treatment too soon it will come right back.
