Bleach Treatment for Ringworm
Dilute one part bleach in ten parts water (for example, one ounce of bleach and ten ounces of water) and apply to any patches of ringworm 2-4 times a day to clear up ringworm within several days. Bleach is a strong chemical agent, so always be careful in your dilution and application!
[YEA] 12/02/2009: Renee from Ray City, Georgia: "When I was young, I used clorox or bleach on my ringworm and it went away after a couple of weeks. Now, my grandson has a ringwrom, but I'm afraid to use bleach. I will try the ACV to see if it works."Replies
12/04/2009: Jacques from Marshall, Nc replies: "Hello Renee from Ray City Georgia, a most effective treatment for ring worms is colorless iodine, or bleach iodine, same stuff, I had rings worms and a dear friend told me about it, it is getting hard to find in drug stores but easily gotten on the net. This iodine will do short work of a long standing problem, I have done two applications at 12 hours intervals and that was done.
I love this site,
12/06/2009: Merryanne from Orange City, Florida, USA replies: "To Jacques, I was looking for the clear iodine in Walmart yesterday, I asked the lady in the Pharmacy for it, they keep it behind in the Pharmacy precription area,,they were out of stock but ordered some and it will be in stock in 4 days,,, We should start asking our local Pharmacy's for the items we want,,if they do not have it, ask if it is possible they can order it, the same is true for some of the other food items we want from our grocery store. merryanne in Fl"
[YEA] 01/17/2009: morgan from constantia, NY: "Me and everybody in my family, a 12, 14, 9, 8, and 7 year old, got ring worm including the two family pets and we could not figure out how to get rid of it and someone recommended bleaching them with Clorox Bleach so have been trying it and the 7 and 8 year olds are gone afer four days of using it. the 14 year old and the 12 and the 9 year olds are somewhat gone so are going to keep using it but i totally recommend using the Clorox Bleach to get rid of ringworm it is the best and oo yea if your family pet has the ringworm go to the vet and get the pills for animals, not the cream, it doesnt work."
[YEA] 08/30/2006: Eileen from Austin, TX: "I used Bleach. It cured the ringworm on my daughters arm. I used a Qtip and dipped it in clorox bleach applied it for several days and it went away."Replies
[WARNING!] 02/12/2012: Jacob from Huntington Beach, United States replies: "Do not use Bleach. It will pop the pimples in the middle of the ringworm and irritate the ringworm to where it will grow to the size of a quarter. I know because my brother tried it with Bleach and also my wrestling coach told the whole team!"
[YEA] 08/29/2006: KAP from Dallas, TX: "Put 3 tbsp of bleach in bathtub water & soak. I don't recommend this for women, but my husband did this & his dried up within 2 days. Cured ringworm all over body."
[YEA] 07/05/2007: Bayliss from Roselle, NJ: "I got ringworm a few times as a child, and my mother put bleach on a cloth and put it on the affected area for about 5 minutes, and then she would boil a tea bag of Goldenseal Tea, and place that on the area as well. It definitely kills the ringworm. I definitely recommend this remedy."
[YEA] 01/10/2011: Angelina from Moncton, N.b., Canada: "I was never officially diagnosed by a doctor with ringworm but I deduced on my own from checking my symptoms online and with friends. I had red itchy rounds blotches on my chest and arms. At first I used ACV and tea tree oil. That stableized things and kept it from spreading but it didn't seem to clear it up. Finally it was suggested to me to scrub with borax and a clean face cloth. Apparently the fungus likes to live underneath dry skin, and so scrubbing away the dead skin would take away the fungus' shelter. I saw results in a day and was so relieved. I continued this for a good few weeks although it was pretty much gone in a week. I just wanted to make sure it wouldn't return. Borax is mild anyway. Always make sure the cloth you are using is clean to prevent putting the fungus back on your skin."
[YEA] 10/08/2009: Smith from San Francisco, California, Usa: "A year ago I came to this site to find a remedy for ringworm. I had gone through an number of over the counter products, which seemed to spread the fungus instead of stopping it. It had developed because of taking prescription medication with fluoride base. Yes I was poisoning myself with a doctor's help.
I tried Apple Cider Vinegar, hydrogen peroxide and urine to no avail. By the time I found Borax at WalMart, the fungus had spread all over my hands and I had begun to worry that I would be spreading it everywhere on my body. Plus my hands were cracked and bleeding, blistering and peeling, and the itching was endless.
So I started on Ted's recommended dose of 1/8 tsp in a liter of water and drank it slowly over a few hours. This worked within the first few days so well that I didn't want to stop after a few days to take a break, but I did. Within a months time the ringworm had completely vanished and the only thing left was the tiny pits in my fingernails where the fungus had affected the growth of the new nail.
Once my nails were not pitted anymore I stopped taking the borax supplement."

11/30/2011: Bschmidt from Millet, Alberta replies: "I thought I'd reply to this thread because when I was younger my sister brought home a kitten with ringworm. Right away I had one on my leg where the cat sat. It was about the size of a dime. So I took After Bite and applied it to the area. (After Bite contains ammonia. ) The ringworm spot puffed up and went back down before my eyes. A couple days later I looked and it was totally gone and never came back."
[YEA] 06/10/2009: Kokila from Roslyn Heights, New York: "HI,
I had a terrible case of A. Lymphedma in my legs and B. Ringworm there as well.
Lymphedema: got this during my pregnancy and continued for almost 2 years thereafter.
I believe from Adrenal and kidney depletion...pregnancy is hard on the glands...adrenals control fluids in the body...so do kidneys.
Anyway..tried everything: Lymphatic drainage massage MLD, acupuncture, herbs, compression stockings, you name it.
Here's what worked: a. Wheatgrass juice daily and fresh celery and spirulina and parsley juice.
b. Epsom salt baths (1/2 pound in the hot water with some bubble bath ,,,natural of course). Soaked 20 minutes a night before bed.
c. trampoline work.
Guess what? I'm cured...the massage therapist said I'd never cure it...that there is no cure. Oh yeah?
I sure hated those compression stockings. UGLY!
Now for the ringworm: AGAIN! Tried everything!!! Spent lots of money on creams, etc. tried herbs, etc. NOTHING! WORKED! The itching was driving me crazy ...plus ugly oozing sores on my legs. In desperation I tried: YES! Calamine lotion. IT WORKS FOLKS!
In a few hours I found relief and now it's gone. Try it. The lotion cost me $1.99
Best of luck."
[YEA] 07/30/2007: maya from chicago, illinois: "I have had body ringworms for almost 6 months now. I tried everything from tea tree oil to otc stuff and nothing seems to be working. I even tried ordering things from the internet and that didn't work either. I have been applying calomin lotion to the infected areas 3x a day and it seems to be working. The only side effect is a light pink ring, but it's better than the ringworm itself."
[YEA] 01/09/2010: Corinna_bella from Sydney, Australia: "This is not the most natural remedy but it certainly works.
Use a cottontip to wipe ringworm with nailpolish remover (or apple cider vinegar works if you are chemical concious but nail polish remover works best) and then cover the area with clear nail polish (use one of the eco friendly brands if you are concerned about the chemicals)
Reapply the clear nailpolish every couple of hours and it will disappear in 2-3 days.
I tried everything and this worked a dream. Aparently the nailpolish suffocates the bacteria"
[YEA] 03/25/2011: Tiff from San Jose, Califonia replies: "I'm going to be very clear. Clear nail polish is the only thing that works! I have had ring worm on and off for the past 12 years, and I've tried everything you can name from perscriptions, over the counter creams, home remedies, bleach, anything you can name. I just recently saw that people were recomending clear nail polish, and the next day it started to fade away, faster then anything I have tried before. Don't let ringworm be in your way!"
[YEA] 12/22/2008: Ashley from Las Vegas, California: "ringworm - use clear nail polish and it will be gone in a couple days."
[YEA] 09/04/2008: Anquetta from Tupelo, MS: "My son had ringworm and the best thing thatworks is clear nail polish. Clean the area with peroxide and put two coats (small) on the area and in about 3 days the ringworm will be gone.. trust me .. IT REALLY WORKS."Replies
11/08/2009: Blessed from Tulsa, Ok replies: "RINGWORM: How large an area can be painted with Clear Nail Polish?
I was misdiagnosed, but then realized what I had contacted Ringworm - and used tea tree oil initially, but found that better relief with apple cider vinegar. The problem is that is rubbing the apple cider vinegar, the Ringworm has spread to large portions of my body. I hope that I have not gotten a staph infection, as some sections are really red. I started placing some clear nail polish on the areas, but needed to know how much can be applied? Thank you and God Bless!"
08/21/2012: Lele from Riverside, Ca replies: "This was an interesting remedy that actually worked... Faster than using ACV or Tea Tree Oil alone. I would clean the area using either of the above items mentioned and then apply a thick layer of clear nail polish. There was a huge difference by morning. It only took a few days for it to disappear, but I do recommend doing this a week longer to keep it from coming back. This method is also great to keep other areas from becoming affected.
Also, you may use a liquid bandage. They work the same way and even better if you find one that won't sting!"
[YEA] 09/21/2012: Windinthetrees from Fort Collins, Colorado: "I cured a nasty case of ringworm with unrefined raw organic coconut oil. I first had tried tea tree oil, straight, a few times a day. Looked like this might work but it then irritated the skin so bad it ended up spreading it. I also had tried Grapefruit seed extract and this made it itch more. I was getting a bit desperate and I heard about coconut oil somewhere else on the web. I tried it and within just a few days the improvement was significant and it got better and better and then was gone!! I keep applying coconut oil to the area for another month to make sure it would not come back. I also took oil of oregano internally to help my basic body condition. After all the irritation from the tea tree oil and grapefruit seed extract the coconut oil was so soothing and it worked so well that I though I would share this. I am surprised there are no other reports on this website for this cure!!"
[YEA] 10/15/2007: G from Buffalo, NY: "Please post this for others to read. When I was young, I had a spot on my leg that was rignworm. My grandmother used her crochet hook (anything will do) to apply pressure to the spot. She pushed her crochet hook like an X, and in different directions over the spot, thus breaking up the "ring". I guess it worked...it went away."
[YEA] 05/05/2012: Deby from Tampa, Florida: "When my son was little I found one spot of ringworm on his backside under his diaper (I never understood how it got there). I tried an over the counter treatment diligently that was basically some type of burning acid. It was quite painful and actually spread the spots. I could not bear to apply the treatment any longer and took him to a doctor that happened to be Cuban and obviously was used to home treatments. He told me off-handedly to just give him a bath in epsom salts. After the first bath, the ringworm was 75% cleared. One more bath was all it took to completely dry out the spots. I was very thankful for such a simple and easy solution."
