Ringworm is a fungal infection that often afflicts cats and dogs and can also infect humans.
Symptoms in people include itchiness, redness, and scaly or dry patches of skin.
The affected areas often appear as concentric rings, with the center portion healing as the infection moves outward.
Diagnosis is often confirmed using ultraviolet light.
UV light does not always properly identify the presence of dermatophytes causing ringworm, other techniques are often needed in conjunction with it. Most frequently, hairs or skin cells are used for a culture to determine whether any fungal organisms are present.
