    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    How many of you try to hide your ringworm?

    Because if the grappling instructor finds out that you have it, you will be sent home, and it SUCKS. Everytime I get it I'm out of training for more than a month. I use antifungul cream and doctors perscription, and even bleach, and it still takes over a month to go away. Once you get ringworm, people are afraid you always might have it. It pisses me off. Sometimes you cant hide it. But sometimes I think I would be better off if I could.:5help:

    I'll say this once:
    YOU DON'T

    You be a good student and you stay home and treat it. When it disappears, you treat it for at LEAST another 7 days.

    If you go back early, you pass it on. After you've healed, the person you've passed it to, not knowing he has it because it takes 4-10 days to show symptoms, will pass it back to you and your screwed again.

    NEVER roll with a contagious rash or infection.

    Don't be a douchebag.

    If you keep getting it, you need to make sure (ask the instructor) the mats are bleached or washed with an anti-fungal/anti-bacterial solution EVERY night, ESPECIALLY if there is a bout of ringworm or something else going around.

    Nevermind, I'll say it again:
    YOU DON'T

    (Can you tell I've had to deal with this recently?)

    The mere fact that you ask this question makes you a terrible and inconsiderate training partner. Did it not occur to you that there’s a fucking reason the grappling instructor sends you home?

    My skin is fucking crawling after reading the OP.

    I sometimes (rarely) have problems with athlete's foot, so I ALWAYS make it a goddamn point to wear shoes to practice in. I don't want it, and nobody else wants it.

    Goddamn.

    They shouldn't have done that. Right now I am delaying my return to BJJ simply because I have a non-contagious rash that I know will look like ringworm to most people* so I am doubly pissed at this idea.

    I get this **** viciously and easily.

    So don't hide your ringworm and don't be a fucking asshole.

    Do however explore the following options:

    It is possible that the fungus has "colonized" in your body. Which means that even when you treat individual rashes, you're still not killing this ****. They prescribe medication you can take internally to kill this vile ****.

    Shower after EVERY workout with nizorele. It's an aggressive dandruff shampoo with a chemical in it that kills fungus. This will help you preemtively kill that stuff.

    And good god, those homeopathic, natural or old wives' remedies are a big steaming pile of ****. Do not put clear nail-polish on it either.

    Get yourself some good, new fashioned drugs.
    Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.
    As far as possible, without surrender,
    be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    and listen to others,
    even to the dull and ignorant;
    they too have their story.

    -excerpt of the poem called "Desiderata," by Max Ehrman, 1927.
