Can I get ringworm from my pet?

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.
