So about about four weeks ago I got lazy and didn't shave for about 5 days, with my heavy manly beard that's about 2 weeks of growth for a normal person.
Anyways in that time I went to some no-gi weekend classes.
So about a 5 days in my beard is itching like crazy so I shave it off and low and behold there's a quarter sized red mark on my face.
Now I wash my stuff after every single class and shower when I get home but because of the beard I didn't scrub my face like I should and I have ring worm on my cheek.
I have been putting topical anti-fungal cream on it for almost 3 weeks and it's faded to a barely noticeable spot.
My question is two fold.
How long after it disappears when can I safely go back to training ( I don't want to be a bastard who spreads this)
And has anyone found a scruffy face vs clean shaven makes a difference with getting this ****?
My plan now is to get a bigger gym bag and bring a towel and sandals and scrub and scour myself right after class from now on.
And make sure I am clean shaven all the time
And never to go to no-gi again
It's a filthy disgusting bastardization of the beautiful sport of Jiu-Jitsu.
Thoughts and snide sarcastic comments appreciated.
