A 21-year-old member asked:

What's the difference between ringworm and impetigo?

Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Impetigo = bacterial: Ringworm (tinea corporis) is a fungal infection and can spread to other parts of the body or to other people. Treatment is usually with over-the-counter anti-fungal creams (lotrimin (clotrimazole) af). Rashes that don't go away easily, or those that keep returning after treatment, should be evaluated by a doctor. People with diabetes get more fungal infections, and have a harder time getting rid of infections.

Yes: It is possible to get ringworm (tinea corporis) from both humans and household pets, depending on who has the fungus. Tinea is contagious, but not super contagious to healthy people, so it is hard to predict how much contact with a person or animal it takes for one to get a rash.
