Home Remedy for Ringworm


Tinea, commonly known as Ringworm, is a fungal infection that appears as a red, circular patchy scaly scar on the skin. Another form of this infection is Athlete’s foot.

Lack of self-hygiene is the basic cause for these taints on the skin. When you over-sweat, live in a highly populated area or unclean surroundings, you need to take extra care in your hygiene routine. It is contagious too.

Home Remedy for Ringworm – Method:

  • Crush well a few garlic pods quite fine and mix it with coconut oil.
  • Apply a thin layer of the mixture over the infected spots.
  • Leave for 2-3 hours, rinse and wipe it off dry.
  • Can repeat for about 3-4 times in a day for 10-15 days.
  • Alternatively, you can make a mixture of a few drops of tea tree oil and coconut oil and use.

Why Coconut oil?

Coconut has strong anti-fungal properties. It also provides anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant qualities, aids working as a lubricant over the flaky red scarred skin and heals effectively, most probably faster too.

And coconut oil does not normally cause any side effects on the skin and naturally moisturizes it too.

Even after the infection is gone, continue applying the garlic and the coconut oil mixture or only coconut oil over the infected spots just to reduce the chances of recurrence.

Just in case, if the infection doesn’t seem to decrease or go away even after 10 days or so, please visit a doctor as sometimes the infection needs to be treated with medicines.
