Practice good posture. Stand straight and hold your head high. If you need help: old school= walk with a book on your head. They also sell electronic devices that vibrate when you hunch to remind you. ...Read more

What are ringworns how do childern get ringworns

What are ringworns how do childern get ringworns

Ringworm: Ringworm is actually not caused by a worm at all, but is caused by a fungus that lives on the skin called tinea. People can get a tinea infection from skin to skin contact with an infected person or pet or by sharing personal items such as towels, clothing, and combs.

Clotrimazole is the generic name for the over the counter cream that treats ringworm. Apply 2-3 times a day for a few weeks until the lesion disappears completely and then some. Keep it covered for the first day of treatment (or longer if you want to) to prevent spread. Your child will need to see his doctor for a stronger medication if the ringworm is on his scalp, continues to spread after treatment at home or if it doesn't get better after 4 weeks of treatment at home. ...Read more
