Itchy, scratchy, flaky, embarrassing. Ringworm is a contagious rash you can pick up anywhere; while most people might picture the pool, the gym, or children’s play areas, you can get ringworm from a simple hug or handshake, or even from your pet! Because ringworm can spread through surfaces (clothing and commonly touched objects) you may not even see someone with it before you get it!
Fortunately, you can also use colloidal silver for ringworm. As immune support, as skin support, and already on hand in your cabinet, colloidal silver can help you as you heal from ringworm and other rashes.
What is Ringworm? What are Ringworm Symptoms?
The good news is that ringworm isn’t a parasite—it’s a fungus. The bad news is that some people, especially those with weakened immune systems, can have an especially hard time completely healing from fungi.
Ringworm is an itchy, peeling rash that might make hair fall out of infected areas creating a bald patch. It’s identified by (and named for) the red raised ring pattern it develops in.
Ringworm is highly contagious, and can spread on your own body or to others, so be sure to take a very active approach against it—whether you use colloidal silver for ringworm or something else.
Ringworm, like other fungal infections, develops in wet, dark places. It can cause Athlete’s Foot, Jock Itch, and similar infections, or it can develop on the scalp or arms.
Colloidal Silver for Ringworm Symptoms
Colloidal silver has two main traditional uses: first as immune support, colloidal silver was often treated as an antibiotic (but for all pathogens, not just bacteria) before the invention of antibiotics and other modern medicines; second as skin support (including eyes) for all number of ailments.
You can use colloidal silver for ringworm, or any rash. While it’s useful to know ringworm symptoms (because it’s so contagious, this can help with prevention), you can use colloidal silver as skin support against any redness, itching, broken skin, etc.
Colloidal Silver for Ringworm Support
There are multiple ways to use colloidal silver for ringworm support.
First, colloidal silver is general immune support. Take it as a daily supplement to support your body against all kinds of pathogens.
Second, colloidal silver is (both traditionally and in modern medicine) used to support skin and support healing. It’s available in an ointment, but you can quickly and easily support skin with a colloidal silver spray.
Third, use colloidal silver to help stop the spread of infection. Spray your clothes and other objects to help stop the spread of ringworm, or add some to your washing machine. Save money with Hot Tub Silver for this use, just don’t confuse it with your colloidal silver supplement!
When to Use Colloidal Silver for Ringworm
Colloidal silver has so many uses, it’s a great tool for your health to always have on hand in your home.
And if you keep it on hand, you can use it at the first sign of a rash. Use colloidal silver for ringworm the second you suspect you’ve got it, but also use colloidal silver as general skin support and prevention—don’t wait until the problem develops too far. Some people are predisposed to frequent fungal infections, and it’s important that they monitor and support healthy skin.
How to Use Colloidal Silver for Ringworm
Before using colloidal silver for ringworm, make sure that you do not have a silver allergy. Although rare, most people know they have an allergy from previous contact with silver.
Next, make sure skin is clean and dry (be sure to isolate and clean anything that touches a ringworm rash). Spray colloidal silver on rash, or apply MesoSilver Topical Cream.
Repeat 2-3 times a day, and prevent contact with the rash otherwise (choose a breathable bandage or covering).
Colloidal Silver for Ringworm in Dogs and Cats
Ringworm isn’t limited to humans. Dogs and cats can develop ringworm, and humans and pets can spread it back and forth.
Use colloidal silver for ringworm in pets, too. Just like with humans, keep the area clean, apply colloidal silver, and take steps to prevent further spread. Unlike in humans, pets may need extra help with being prevented from biting/scratching an infected area.
You can give pets a drop or two of colloidal silver in their water bowl (depending on their size) as well as spray colloidal silver on skin.
As tick season approaches, remember that pets need tick checks, too! This is a great way to also monitor for rashes.
Stay prepared—have colloidal silver on hand for ringworm and more.
