EEEEK Ringworm is nasty. I had it many years ago and had some high strength steroid/anti-fungal cream to sort it out.

Of course, looking back I assume it was ringworm, it could have been syphilis :)

Just don't let the ringworm spread to your scalp.  It will cause your hair to fall out in perfectly formed circles.  I remember when a female childhood neighbor got it and had a bald spot the size of a silver dollar on her head.

Yeah cream, powder and some pills. Full out war on fungal. Its not syphilis in my case.

hope you recover quickly!


Thanks. :)

Well none on the top of my head yet, hopefully its not going to spread further with treatment. That said if it did happen I would not be too worries as I shave my head once a week with the clippers, so I don't think it would be much of a hair style issue in my case ;D

I ended up getting Strep Throat too, exactly kicked in evening of 20th Dec too, and we're in a similarneck of the woods location wise. Was real bad does & annoying too. So went through a few throat sprays, those sweets with medication in them, and a heap of Lemsips and ibruprofen too to kill the annoying pain.

Yup,  Strep Throat does seem to be going around at the moment.

Oh well at least it was not the flu.
