    You're all way off base. It's RROD, which can be fixed for $30 by any number of people on craigslist.

    Likely but my guess was bubonic plague.

    1. you need to be diagnosed
    2. if it is fungal and you use a dandruff shampoo beware that you still need to use an antibacterial

    I can email you a free skin infection chart and send you a free sample of our shower gel.

    If you would like either or both just shoot me an email at defensesoap@msn.com

    Oh yeah, should I be avoiding having sex as well until this thing clears up, or just premarital grappling?

    When I had my first and only bout of ring worm on my forearm (started like your rash: circle of red bumps), I had it checked out and was prescribed Ketoconazole cream. Caught it from a guy who brought it in from a high school weight room (dirty high school kids). Him and I were the only 2 to catch it; we both treated it right away.

    Don't mess around with any of the bleach/Tinactin/fingernail polish/kangaroo-**** methods that people swear by. See a doctor and do what he says. If he says Ketoconazole, get some. If he says get Tinactin, then go for it. If he says smear kangaroo **** on it, see another doctor. That's fucked up.

    I stayed off the mat for a couple of weeks. I also kept it covered if there was chance that it might come in contact with someone else. I used either the big waterproof band-aids (clear sticky pads) or flexible fabric ones (Walgreens brand ones stay on through anything). Took about 2-3 weeks for it to fade.

    Now, I use Defense wipes to wipe down my arms/legs/head (exposed body parts) immediately after rolling, then Defense soap when I get home. I even have the Defense spray bottle for my gear. Yes, I am a walking commercial for Defense soap now.

    So, get it diagnosed, no direct contact with the infect area, keep it covered, and off the mat until it is completely gone. :-P

    If you have a staph infected asshole I will gladly pass on my title to you, as you obviously deserve it more.

    I went to the doctor today, and turns out I don't have ringworm; I have shingles. For those of you unfamiliar, Shingles is the underwhelming sequel to chicken pox, where the virus flairs up again but with less drama and potency.
    Kind of like the Ong Bak 2 of skin conditions.
