From: From your description, you may have ringworm of the scalp which is actually caused by a fungus, not a worm.

Treatment usually includes 1-2 months of a prescription oral medication. You should give your doctor a call and have them take a look at it. They will hopefully be able to tell exactly what it is so you can get the proper treatment. Good luck! ...Read more
