All people can get infected with ringworms regardless of age, sex, and socio-economic status. Anyone can contract the fungal infection when exposed to a dermatophyte contaminated article or area, and through direct contact from an infected person or animal. There are a lot of effective ringworm remedies that will help you exterminate the fungi. Here are some of the ringworm remedies that will help you solve your ringworm problem:

- Use bleach to clean your clothes and environment. Bleach is cheap and readily available. This is very effective in killing fungi. But this should not be directly administered on the skin because it can cause irritation or allergic reactions, and if it is absorbed it can cause lung damage. You just have to use bleach in cleaning clothes and home environment. It is recommended to dilute the bleach, 1:10 or 1:100 solution in water can be used. Bleach is a good disinfectant that will keep your things and environment clean.
