Ringworm is a skin infection caused by mold like fungi that live on the dead tissues of your skin, hair and nails. You can read more about ringworm here. Ringworm’s symptoms typically include:

  • Red, scaly patch or bump that itches
  • A ring or several rings may form in that area
  • The inside of the “ring” or patch is typically clear and scaly
  • The outside of the “ring” may be raised or bumpy

During the winter, your skin may be more susceptible to rashes due to the harsh temperatures. The extreme temperature shifts from indoors to outdoors can be brutal on your skin. The dry, cold weather can usher in a variety of different skin issues that lead to a rash. Many of these rashes can easily be confused with a ringworm rash.

Eczema flare-ups can occur during the winter due to the combination of extreme temperatures, tight woolen clothing and the dry air.

Nummular dermatitis’ rash or sores are coin shaped. The circular shape can lead you to think you may have ringworm. These rashes or sores can appear after you are injured.

Acne can flare up in the harsh winter’s cold air. Your skin’s natural barrier is stripped off and can lead to a rash of pus filled cysts and pimples. These typically form on your face, back and buttocks.

If you are concerned about your skin issues that have popped up this winter, contact Medical Dermatology Specialists to help correctly diagnose your condition. Ringworm can be confused with other skin conditions and requires a prompt and specific treatment.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
