After a haircut we noticed that our son had a bald spot in the top of his head. The barber misdiagnosed it as dry skin but he told us to use a dandruff shampoo with selsun in it. The spot began to enlarge so I began research and took him to the physician who confirmed it was ringworm.

For 1 month he took griseofulvin twice a day (i dont like giving my children medication) with no improvement. During this time he also developed molluscum contagiosum. So we went to a dermatologist (I thought they may know more) I was determined to find a cure and I found this site. I told him what I had read and they advised against it and added another month of the same treatment.

Well I went home and tried it anyway feeling it could not hurt. ACV worked I am now a believer also. I would wash his hair every two days with the selsun and pour the ACV all over his head (yes it smelled). After the first application I could see improvement in the surface skin it has been two months now and his scalp looks great. We are returning to the dermatologist I need to be sure it is gone. Thank you for this site it is now a part of my favorites.
