Q.

RING WORM

My 4 year old has something like a ring worm close to her eye. Is there anything you can recommend before it gets nasty. She is in daycare and i'm wondering if thats were she got it from. How can i stop her from picking up thing like that at school.

This is probably a ringworm and she probably did pick it up at the daycare. Please tell the supervisor about it. Treatment is usually very successful using Canesten cream twice daily.
