What kind of infection do you get from a ringworm?

Or is the ringworm itself an infection?

The ring worm itself is the infection, that is why it is so contagious. Dogs carry them, and humans pass it around.

Fact: The ringworm itself is the infection. A ringworm is a very contagious type of infection. It's a form of fungus that generally occurs beneath the skin. Some of the most common areas that get ringworm are the scalp, the feet, and the groin. Your nails can even catch ringworm.

Ringworm is not a worm it is an infection called tinea. Its an infection of the skin hair or nails that looks like a tiny worm.

The sign of ringworm is obvious on humans. You'll see a perfect red ring somewhere around your wirst or your hand. On pets in can be a bit more difficult to find because they have fur.
