Ringworm on Body Symptoms and Signs
The signs of ringworm look like its name. It forms a red, elevated, rapidly growing, ringlike sore on the skin. The center of the ring may be clear. The sore itself may contain scales, crust, or fluid-filled areas. Itching and pain may accompany the sore (doctors call them lesions). Each lesion is less than 5 cm across (about 2 inches) and occurs alone or in groups of three or four.
