    It will leave a scar and your skin will likely be discolored (slightly darker than your normal skin color).

    My ringworm (see my first post) left my skin in that area discolored.

    Most ringworm is pretty small; smaller than a dime. Larger areas, like mine, leave a noticeable discoloration.

    Once the red ring is completely gone then the ringworm has gone beneath the skin and is on its way out. Keep applying the creme and/or spray for at least another week.

    Don't mean to bring up an old thread, but the pics in the op are gone. What kind of bleach am I supposed to use? With which ingredients? Is clorox cleanup ok?

    Pics were hosted and my account was cleared a while ago. Here is an upload of a pic from my hard drive which I found.

    If your going to use bleach make it unscented run of the mill straight bleach.

    However, if the spot is bigger than a dime, consistent use of bleach could stain your skin permanently; it depends on how sensitive your skin is.

    I would see a doc and have him prescribe the strongest anti-fungal you can get.

    Sorry to continue the bumps but this is the best Ringworm thread on the site, and thus it shall not die.

    I was recently diagnosed with Ringworm but, unlike those images, it was a solid raised red circle about an inch and a half in diameter and it pussed (badly at first).

    I went to my dermatologist today who diagnosed it but cleared me for grappling and striking so long as I wear a big bandage over the spot. I was prescribed a prescription anti-fungal whose name I can't remember. I was wondering if any of the medical members of this site might know what strain of Ringworm I have that it is ok'd for me to grapple with so long as it is covered? Do I have a crappy dermatologist or is the sweat comment in GoldenJonas' OP not always true?

    I sure as hell wouldn't do that.

    A couple of years ago I was grappling with someone and we were practicing heel hooks I think. He had a large bandage on one of his legs. I asked him what it was and he said ringworm. A week later I had a nice case of ring worm on my forearm.

    Well.... in my case it is on the forearm and I was thinking of bandaid+gauze+ace bandage+compression shirt. I REALLY need to keep grappling after having finally started.

    Dude, I would err on the side of caution and not grapple until that **** heals a bit as a courtesy to your training partners.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    I would suggest taking a hiatus from training to be safe.

    If you really can't then maybe a big ass bandage AND a rashguard?

    The pic above your post was actually about the size of a half-dollar and it was also slightly raised. I did not puss though.

    I would DEFINITELY NOT grapple, at a minimum, until the red ring starts to break.

    More importantly, I would not grapple with you if I knew you had that. You will recover from ringworm, but there is no reason to infect your training partners simply because YOU want to train.
