Question

Ringworm

I noticed a ringworm on my arm a couple of days ago. I am using an ointment for this, which seems to be working, but I would also like to sterilise my towels and clothing. Is this necessary and how should I do it? Will adding Dettol to my washing be good enough?

If you want to sterilise your towels and clothing, you will have to wash it at 60 degrees celcius for at least half and hour. No need to add Dettol.
