Also known as, Dermatophytosis, ringworm is a fungal infection that affects the skin of humans, cats, dogs and other animals of domestic use such as cattle, goats and sheep. Despite of its peculiar name, ringworm isn’t caused by parasitic worms but by a type of fungi known as Dermatophytes. The affected area is marked by a large red ring-like rash on the skin that is accompanied with itching. According to recent surveys, nearly 20% percent of the human population is affected by Dermatophytes.
