Ringworm on Body Causes
Ringworm is very common. In a study done in an inner-city school system, approximately 6% of school children were infected. Most ringworm infections result from human dermatophytes, which are transmitted by direct contact with other human ringworm sores. Still, you can also develop ringworm from the soil or through exposure to animals (commonly the household pet).
