GENERAL FEATURES OF RINGWORM
The various Tricophyta, which are the common cause of ringworm in animals, are fungi. Each ringworm scab is made up of millions of tiny spores. These infectious spores are so small and light that they can be carried for long distances by draughts or air currents and are so resistant that they can live on bare wood or brickwork for 6-12 months.
Any treatment which involves ‘scrubbing off’ immediately liberates the spores and so spreads the infection.
