Ringworm is a skin infection caused by mold like fungi that live on the dead skin tissues of your hair, nails and skin. This condition can appear anywhere on your body. Children under 15 years of age are at higher risk of the formation of ringworm. Due to its contagious nature, treatment from a dermatologist is highly recommended. Medical Dermatology Specialists in Lawrenceville specializes in comprehensive ringworm treatment for individuals throughout Gwinnett County.

Symptoms of Ringworm

The symptoms of ringworm include a reddened skin patch in a ring shape with a raised edge and clear center. This itchy skin rash typically appears on the arms or legs. The condition is contagious and can be passed through contaminated clothing or personal care products and by contact with an infected individual or pets. Ringworm on the scalp can make skin tender to the touch and cause hair to fall out in patches.

Gwinnett County Ringworm Treatment Options

There are a few effective treatment options for ringworm at the Lawrenceville Atlanta Dermatology clinic in Gwinnett County. Topical antifungal creams or antihistamines can be highly effective treatment options for individuals with ringworm. Medications may need to be taken for up to four weeks to lower the risk of recurrence. Your dermatologist may recommend other home remedies and lifestyle changes as part of your treatment plan.

Proper care of the skin during treatment can help speed recovery. Wash and pat dry skin thoroughly before treatment. Wear loose-fitting clothing and wash hands after applying lotions or ointments.

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.

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.
