5 Comments for the Ringworm Home Remedy

Tanning Salon. I had ringworm for six weeks, severly on my tricpes, and it spread to my biceps, forearms, back and forehead. I tried everything, doctor and home remedy, and nothing got rid of it. I went to a tanning salon before a vacation, and the first 10 min session got rid of the smaller sores almost instantly. The second 10 min session turned the 7 and 5 inch lesions on my triceps into dry patches overnight.

The problem with this method is that by laying in the tanning bed you are infesting the bed with the fungus for the next guest who lays down.

I cannot imagine how this works!! I GOT my ringworm FROM a tanning salon!! At first I thought it was a tiny bug bite, but everytime I went tanning it made it WORSE and it is not the size of a half dollar. When you sweat it makes the ringworm worse! not better!

While it is true that the sweat makes it worse, and that you can catch it from a tanning bed that hasn't been properly cleaned (they should be cleaned between uses.... gross...) Anyway, it's true, UV light kills the fungus, I used to get sunburned on purpose to get rid of ringworm. The only problem is I did have a dermatologist tell me that even if you kill the indiviual sores, some people still won't get rid of it until they kill it with oral meds over a long period of time because it can spread without even touching it... apparently... that's what he said at least :)

I think I actually developed my ringworm condition through use of tanning bed. Just remember tanning beds have all the warm moist conditions which encourage fungis' growth. so I wouldn't recommend this treatment as a cure at all.

If it gets worse by tanning consider having a culture done. Psoriasis often gets misdiagnosed as ringworm and sunburn can make it worse. Slight burst of UV however make it better.
