Our expert says:
Ringworm is caused by a fungus. Lesion are often roundish with an active, elevated edge. These lesion heal without scarring when treated correctly. Eczema and psoriasis may "look" like ringworm. The diagnosis of ringworm must be proved by examining scrapings of the skin. Canesten cream twice daily for 7-10 days is good for ringworm. If the problem continues rather see your GP.
