Ringworm of the Scalp Prevention

Prevention

To help reduce your child’s chance of getting tinea capitis, take the following steps:

  • Shampoo your child’s hair regularly.
  • Don’t allow your child to share headgear, brushes, or combs.
  • Wash towels, clothes, and any shared items used by an infected person to prevent spreading it to others in the household.
  • Take your pets to the veterinarian for treatment if they develop skin rashes.
