In brief: Direct contact
Ringworm is a skin infection caused by a fungus.
The typical skin lesion of ringworm is round and scaly, and it is itchy. Your baby can get ringworm if he or she touches the lesion in someone who has ringworm, or if they touch a toy or an object or an animal that has the fungus.

In brief: Direct contact
Ringworm is caused by a fungus and is most commonly spread by direct contact with another person, or less commonly a dog or cat, or by sharing clothing or towels.
It is often difficult to determine where your baby got the infection but remember that it is not serious, and is easily treated with creams or oral medication.
