    I have had staph on my face and had to go to the emergency room for that. And had it on several other parts of the body that did not result in the emergency room. If you grapple, you will eventually get it. (For note I have never picked it up at my academy... Always from this other guy in town's place. Staph nasty)

    Also have had t3h ringworm. I kill it with bleach. One application for 3 minutes (Soak a cotton ball or wash cloth and hold it there) It makes a light chemical burn, but fixes the worm with little to no trouble in one application. (I do a follow up after 2 weeks to kill any spores)

    I also got flesh-eating mites when I borrowed a judo gi from the local college judo club so I could play with them one night. That is BY FAR the worst thing ever. I was miserable for 5 days before I went to the doctor. They itched day and night and it was worse at night... much worse (on my thighs, groin, face, neck, arms, and abdomen). Went there and was give a cream that killed them with one application. Here is the bad part... It continued to itch for three weeks while the dead mites, their feces, and cast off skin particles worked their way to the surface and out of my body.

    I shower AS SOON AS I GET HOME after each class and don;t wear a beard or anything of the like. I roll in a rashguard to protect more of my skin. So what can I say... The life of the grappler sucks =P

    I think you should try some of the best treatment for ringworm that includes:


    Ketoconazole
    Clotrimazole
    Terbinafine
    Miconazole
    Econazole
    Naftifine
    Luliconazole


    Also before going through these treatments it's necessary that you should consult a doctor. You can also use some anti-fungal creams twice a day for a quick recovery.

    Another back from the dead thread! Once I bought clotrimazole cream from the chemist because I thought I was getting it, but it was just hives because I was too skint before payday and did my laundry with fairy liquid.

    Defence Soap is good a good combatant in keeping gym funk at bay, except I buy similar tea tree body washes that are a fraction of that price!

    Defense Soap is awesome, and not just for ringworm. I've been using that stuff for years. The eucalyptus and tea tree oil is great on a lot of different skin issues and inflammation. Relieves itching and things like poison ivy and hemorrhoids, too. Very soothing. They sell it in gel, bar soap, and even hand wipe versions which I used religiously in BJJ (especially since I had to use the YMCA showers...yuck).
