[YEA] 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] 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] 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.
False Ringworm. My husband has been battling with what the doctors thought was ringworm. Tried all the home and doctor remedies but none worked for more then a day or so if at all and then it started to spread and some of the sores became infected. It started on his arms moved to the torso then his legs. Turns out there is a Eczema that looks just like ringworm. It's called "Nummular Dermatitis". There are pictures and discriptions on the web. Hope this helps someone.

[YEA] re: Natural Cure Ringworm -- I tried the Fig leaf sap as someone suggested and I will tell you it was gone the next day!
[YEA] My grandmother taught me this and it works for Ringworm. Take a leaf from a fig tree (Edible Fruit Variety) and the milky white sap from the leaf rubbed on the ringworm will get rid of it in a few days.
[YEA] I used the sap of a fig tree to heal my ring worm on my ankle. I had tried tea tree oil and it didn't work for me but the sap cleared it up by the next day! I used a knife to peel a piece off of the trunk and rub it all over the ringworm. It worked for me!

[YEA] In November of 2009, my 6 year old daughter had a fingertip sized ringworm just next to her eye. Due to the delicate area the best choice for a remedy was the black walnut hull. But we had no walnut trees nearby, only pecans. I reasoned that since the pecan was a genus of the walnut family, it stood a great chance of success. I went outside and grabbed a pecan off the tree.
The outer green part surrounding the pecan in its shell is what is used. Wearing gloves (the tannin in the hull stains a lovely shade of brown), I cut a 1/4 inch piece. With my daughter laying down, unaware of the impending horror, I commenced. I squeezed the hull until the liquid appeared. I rubbed the liquid directly onto the ringworm and used tissue to mop any excess. After about 30 seconds my daughter began to cry out. The process burned terribly. I explained that the burning sensation most likely meant that we were killing the fungus, so at least the pain would be productive. I spent 20 minutes blowing on the area and my poor daughter went to sleep quite upset. However...
The next morning, the ringworm area had begun to scab. It was not pretty to look at. That night my daughter was afraid to let me touch her. I had to wait until she was asleep to apply the pecan hull. She awoke during the end of the process (quite angry and annoyed at my tactic). The next day the scab was huge and crusty. I had not read anywhere about the appearance after the application and I hoped that it would slough off quickly. The 4th night (taking a forced break on the 3rd night) I reasoned with my daughter that we would apply more pecan hull liquid and it would only sting if there was still live fungus under the scab, otherwise it should be painless. She weighed it out and realized that she wanted the thing totally gone, so we proceeded. This time, no sting and it lightly stained the skin surrounding the scab. That was it.
The scab lasted about 4 weeks. It was ugly and thick and showed no sign of leaving. We would cover it with a bandage coated with cornstarch to keep the adhesive from pulling on the sensitive skin near the eye. Finally the scab began to decrease. After about a month the scab totally came off, but a red scar remained. Now after 6 weeks, the scar has faded to a barely visible mark and I feel confident that the cure worked.
[YEA] i work in a medical clinic and contracted a ringworm from one of my young patients. the nurse told me to buy some otc antifungal cream and it would be gone in about 3 weeks. i have been interested in alternative meds for sometime, so i grabbed one of my books and read that garlic is antifungal. i bought a head of garlic, sliced a clove of it quite thin, applied it to the ringworm,covered it with a bandaid, and waited. now the chemicals in garlic will burn the skin for a minute or so, but after applying the garlic 3 nights in a row, the ringworm disappeared. i recommend this remedy to everyone. garlic works for lots of things.

[YEA] Garlic works for ringworm. It smells bad, but it works. You should buy a cheese grater and then grate the garlic. Once the garlic is grated, get a cotton boll or a clean napkin and apply in the area. It's going to burn but it helps do this at least 3 times a day: once in the morning and one time during the day and last but not least, during the night. But make sure you clean your face first with warm water then dry with a clean towel.. =] good luck=]
[YEA] Take a fresh clove of garlic. Cut it, rub the juicy piece on the ringworm 3 x day. It'll be gone in a couple of days. It does sting a bit, but not for long. Tried it on me and my neighbor kids with great success.

[YEA] I applied pure garlic oil directly on the ringworm patch. I also took Garlic oil capsuls internally to cleanse the bloodstream. This worked for me.
Ringworm is a fungus from hell. I first noticed what I thought was a bruise on my left hip area. Hmm, Few days later, I saw the horror and knew before going to doctor but wanted absolute confirmation and some antifungal. He put me on clotrimazone1%. Said should be gone in about 2-3 weeks. After three weeks, nothing other than seeing more red spots showing up. I kept using the clotrimazone but tried, ACV, Teatree oil, neem, oregano essential oils, mixed. No change after a week.
On 4th week and nothing has died out that I can tell. Tried Absorbine Jr and then today TKO, an orange oil cleaner. I'm desperate and afraid to have to go on prescription meds. I just bought some Terbinefine Hydrochloride 1% as someone suggested on a site. If this doesn't work, I will try the DMSO and Tannic acid if I can find it. There are some 3-day guaranteed products I've seen but expensive and I don't have that much faith because you have to use just as they say and with other products or they won't guarantee. I've read a lot about fungus, never had Candida in my life and now I'm battling this horror and am so health conscious.
It was likely the one time I had to use a public toilet with no protection. Was an emergency and I can't sit down to do... You know but can stand for the other. I have to be fanatic about changing clothes and don't want friends over unless I know clorox has been used on my toilet and I have to cover furniture with a special cloth to protect any contamination as this stuff is highly contagious. I could say where it came from on Public toilet but I won't. I'm so angry and wonder now if I will ever find a cure and if I can control the infection around my buttocks without it spreading onto more areas. OH BOY!!!!
