In brief: Ringworm

If properly diagnosed and treated, ringworm of the hand should be completely resolved by 5 weeks.
At worse there might be some residual faint pink tint to the skin and it may be a little smoother than normal, but no scarring. In individuals with darker pigmented skin the area of the healed infection is likely to be lighter in color for several months.
