Tips for Preventing Ringworm

Ringworm is difficult to prevent, but here are tips to reduce your risk:

  • Don't share clothing, sports gear, towels, or sheets.

  • Wear slippers in locker rooms and public pool & bathing areas.

  • Shower after any sport that includes skin-to-skin contact.

  • Wear loose-fitting cotton clothing. Change your socks and underwear at least once a day.

  • Keep skin clean and dry. Dry yourself completely after showering.

  • If you have athlete's foot, put your socks on before your underwear to prevent spreading to your groin.

  • Take your pet to the vet if it has patches of missing hair, which could be a sign of a fungal infection.
