How do you tell ringworm from other skin conditions on ur hands n fingers? My cats possibly came in contact don't have it n im worried about gettin it

Typical appearance..: Ringworm is very easily obtained from cats. Remember it is not a worm but a fungal infection. The lesions have a very characteristic appearance and are itchy, and respond well to over the counter anti-fungal creams (Clotrimazole, Terbinafine, etc), but should be treated for a full two weeks at least to ensure resolution. Topical treatments work for all ringworm except those in the scalp. ...Read more

In regards to HIV having access to the bloodstream, isn't the skin on the palm of the hands different from the other skin on the body? Isn't it thin?

In regards to HIV having access to the bloodstream, isn't the skin on the palm of the hands different from the other skin on the body? Isn't it thin?

HIV: Skin on the palms of the hands is no more susceptible to acquisition of HIV infection than any other area. Hiv is simply not transmitted in this fashion, and it is not very easy to get. You need either unprotected sex with an hiv+ person with a high viral load, sharing of needles or blood or body parts. You may find this website helpful
