Does battery acid have effect on ringworm?

I heard you can rub battery acid on the ringworm and it will go away.

Ringworm is a fungus, so named for its appearance. No worms are involved. Battery acid is quite dangerous and should never come in contact with skin of any kind (animal, human). A fungicide is used to treat ringworm and is the only treatment that works.

In no instance whatsover should you rub battery acid on any part of your body. Ringworm can be treated with antifungals or antibiotics. The chemicals in battery acid can scar you for life. It can put holes in your clothes and worse holes in your body. Please see a doctor at once.

Ring worm is actually a viral infection and can only be treated with antibiotics. Rubbing battery acid will do nothing but irritate your skin.

Well, it's possible that battery acid will get rid of the ringworm (which is a fungus, not a worm) but it'll get rid of your skin too. Use the cream.

I would not recommend it. I have never heard of such myth, but this is simply too high of a risk to take. Battery acid is highly acidic and would/probably/burn/a/hole/through/you/instead.

Cut a lime or lemon in half. Center the lemon over the area then let the lemon rest on top for a while. Note: It will burn your skin so don't leave on long. Let the juice dry. Do this at least 2 weeks twice a day.
