Tine corpus, also known as ringworm, is a fungal infection that is extremely common. At Greenwich Point Dermatology in Greenwich, CT, Dr. Dolder can help diagnose and deliver the best treatment so you can live rash free.
What are the signs and symptoms of ringworm?
Ringworm presents as scaly skin accompanied by a circular, red, flat sore. Occasionally, the exterior of the sore is raised while the middle skin is normal. Ringworm can appear as an isolated lesion or as several patches or rings over the body.
What are my treatment options for ringworm?
After a comprehensive exam and confirmed diagnosis of a yeast infection, Dr. Dolder can recommend a variety of treatment options. These can vary from topical or oral antifungal medications.
To prevent ringworm, it is best to protect your skin from contacting moist surfaces in moist public areas such as gyms, pools, and public showers.
