Bleach Kills Ringworm
First of all, let me say that I do not recommend this method. I am only going to share it with you because I want to share my entire ringworm experience with the hopes that my story will help someone. Bleach does kills ringworm. Because I did not realize I had ringworm, I put lotion all over my body thinking that I had winter dry skin. This only helped to spread the issue. As a result, I had a ringworm on the side of my chin. Subconsciously, I had scratched the area until it was open. This is not good. Please remember do not scratch ringworm. I was afraid because I felt like the ringworm was taking me over like a storm. Caught up in my desperation on how to get rid of ringworm, I soaked a wad of toilet paper in bleach and held it up to my chin. Oh my God, how it hurt me! I almost had tears in my eyes. The stinging was awful! This is because it was wide open from me scratching. I thought I had really messed real up bad. I started to regret what I had done.
However, when I woke up the next morning, the majority of the ringworm on my chin was gone. It was like a miracle. The pain was worth it! After two days, there was absolutely no trace of the ringworm on my chin. I was happy and relieved that it didn't make the situation worse! I was told that the main reason this method was effective is that I had scratched open the ringworm. This allowed the bleach to get right to the problem. However, what I did was unsafe, and it could have made things a lot worse.
This is the reason why I do not recommend this method. I could have opened up a can of worms. This would have made the situation worse. Also bleach is caustic to the body. It says right there on the bottle to avoid contact with the skin. I don't think any doctor or nurse out there would recommend using bleach for ringworm. Even though it worked, it was very painful and very dangerous. Please stay away from this remedy.
