Natural Treatment to get rid of Ringworm
A manuscript of somewhere around 1680, from Lincolnshire, advised that for a teter or ringeworme, stampe (LESSER CELANDINE) and apply it to the (griefe ( )) and it will quickly cure you (Gutch & Peacock). In Iowa, a tea made from TOBACCO juice was drunk to cure the condition (Stout). American Indians would use the decoction of the fruit of SMOOTH SUMACH as a wash for the complaint (Lloyd). Mexican Indians have used TREE CELANDINE leaves soaked in alcohol to bathe ringworm of the scalp (Kelly & Plerm). HOUSELEEK has been used, too, for this is a protector from fire and lightning, and so would be used against the fiery diseases, too. A gypsy remedy for ringworm is to boil houseleek, and then to dab the affected part with the water. Even POISON IVY has been used to treat the condition various Californian Indian groups used a mash of the leaves for the purpose (Weiner). SUN SPURGE is another plant used in decoction for this condition (Dyer. 1889 Trevelyan), and so is GROUND CYPRESS...
Tinea Capitis Tinea Barbae Tinea Corporis Tinea Cruris Tinea Manuum and Tinea Pedis Dyshidrosis or contact dermatitis may be easily confused with vesicular fungal infections of the palms and soles. A KOH exam of an inverted blister roof is almost always positive if it is a dermatophytosis. Remember, active TP can cause a sympathetic id reaction (see Photo 19) on the hands, and those vesicles are KOH negative. Both areas should be tested.
Is tinea corporis still part of the differential diagnosis, and if not, why not Answer Tinea corporis enters the differential diagnosis when single or small numbers of lesions are present however, tinea corporis does not spread at this rate and does not produce large numbers of individual lesions. Also, topical antifungal agents are usually effective over a 2-week treatment period. A negative KOH preparation would have ruled out tinea corporis at the time of the initial visit and prevented unnecessary antifungal therapy.
Certain dermatophytes of the genus Microsporum produce substances that cause hairs to fluoresce brilliant green when exposed to a Wood's lamp in a darkened room. Another scalp dermatophyte, T. schoenleinii, produces pale-green fluorescence. When positive, this test is very helpful. Unfortunately, most infections in North America are now caused by nonfluorescing Trichophyton dermatophytes. Therefore, a negative exam is not helpful. Prior use of coal-tar-based shampoos can give a false-positive result.
A 25-year-old woman comes to you with a 1-week history of nonpruritic lesions on the upper right inner arm. Examination reveals three annular lesions with central scale. Treatment for tinea corporis is prescribed in the form of a topical antifungal agent. The patient returns 14 days later complaining of a generalized moderately pruritic eruption from the neck to the upper hips. 2. Is tinea corporis still part of the differential diagnosis, and if not, why not
Answer After the presence of an active tinea pedis is confirmed by KOH preparation, initial treatment should consist of systemic treatment for the tinea pedis. In many instances, the lichen planus will remit when the fungal infection is eradicated. If drug-induced lichen planus is suspected, elimination of the suspect medication is the first measure. In idiopathic lichen planus, treatment may range from
How would you distinguish tinea corporis from the other disorders in your differential diagnosis Answer Only tinea corporis has a positive KOH preparation. If KOH preparation is negative but you strongly suspect tinea corporis, a fungal culture should be done. Answer Tinea corporis is commonly associated with tinea pedis, tinea cruris, and nail infections. These sites should be examined.

A simple scratch or nick can trigger an episode. On the face and head, infection may be secondary to fissuring of chronic eczema or may complicate trauma to the auditory meatus as patients manipulate the canal while relieving the itch of a chronic dermatitis. In children, periorbital cellulitis has been associated with middle-ear infections, and orbital cellulitis has been associated with chronic sinusitis in older children and in adults. On the lower extremities, Assuring from dermatophytosis or chronic stasis ulceration is a predisposing factor. These conditions often act in concert with long-standing lymphatic injury from old trauma or chronic phlebitis. A recently defined syndrome of recurrent cellulitis of the lower extremities has been reported in cardiac bypass patients where vessel harvesting in the lower extremities has disrupted the normal venous and lymphatic return. Diabetes mellitus, neutropenia, IV drug abuse, and immunosuppression predispose patients to the more severe...
The plant is used to treat leprosy the roots are used to heal ulcers and to cure ringworm infection. A decoction of the leaves is drunk to treat tuberculosis and to improve general weakness. In Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam, an infusion of the bark is used to correct nervous affections. The plant is known to elaborate lupane triter-pene saponins and kaurane diterpenes including 16-aH, 17-isovalerate-ent-kauran-19-oic acid, which strongly inhibited the enzymatic activity of cyclooxygenase in vitro (76,77).
It follows that these superstitions are mirrored in a number of houseleek's medicinal uses. They take away the fire of burnings and scaldings (Gerard), as one would be led to suspect. The leaves were used in Scotland to put on burns, like a plaster (Jamieson), and so they were in America (O P Brown). A Yorkshire remedy for burns and scalds was to use the leaves bruised with cream (Morris) and in fact the freshly gathered leaves are used to this day like this (and for corns, too). Similar ideas would account for its use against the fiery diseases - they are good against S. Anthonie's fire, the shingles, and other creeping ulcers and inflammations . (Gerard). A gypsy remedy for ringworm is to boil houseleek, and then to dab the affected part with the water, and there is an erysipelas cure that requires pounded houseleek in a little skimmed milk. The rash should be bathed with this several times each day (V G Hatfield. 1994). Rather more exotic is a shingles remedy from Hertfordshire,...
Skin diseases have long been treated with walnut leaves in one form or another. In parts of America they say that ringworm can be cured by rubbing it with green walnuts (Sackett & Koch Stout). The Pennsylvania Germans do the same to get rid of a wart, and then the nut has to be buried under the eaves (Fogel). But the leaves are strongly astringent anyway, and have been used to treat a wide variety of ailments, including earache (Dyer. 1889), and even toothache, by binding on to the cheek (a practice that could certainly harm one's face).
(Rhus glabra) Much used by native Americans, mainly as a dye plant. The Ojibwa, for example used the pulp of the stalk to produce yellow (Buhler), while the Omaha and Winnebago used the roots for the same purpose (Gilmore). The Plains Indians used to dry the autumn leaves for smoking (Gilmore). They used the shrub widely, too, for medicinal purposes. One was to make a styptic wash from the boiled fruit to check bleeding (Sanford), especially to stop bleeding after childbirth (Corlett). The powdered seeds would also have been applied to wounds, and to treat piles. The juice of the fresh fruit was used for warts and for skin diseases like tetter, while the fruit decoction was taken as a gargle for quinsy, mouth and throat ulcers, and as wash for ringworm (Lloyd). It was even said that the Thompson Indians of British Columbia made a decoction that was claimed to be a powerful remedy for syphilis (Teit).
It is said in America that no plants will grow in the shade of a Black Walnut. Some research has been done on this, and it seems that the roots do secrete some substance harmful to other plants (Baker. 1977). The leaves, too, will keep away house-flies (Bergen. 1899). A dozen or so of these leaves boiled in a quart of water, with a teaspooon of sulphur added, is an Alabama eczema cure (R B Browne), and rubbing ringworm with the inside of a green walnut will cure it, according to Illinois practice (Hyatt). One other belief, once common in Missouri, is that a walnut carried in the pocket will prevent rheumatism (Bergen. 1899).
Cutaneous mycoses are the most common fungal infections found in humans, and are caused by fungi known as dermatophytes, which are able to utilise the keratin of skin, hair or nails by secreting the enzyme keratinase. Popular names for such infections include ringworm and athletes' foot. They are highly contagious, but not usually serious conditions.

(Xanthium strumarium) In China, the leaves are used for dyeing yellow (F P Smith). Dioscorides had a recipe for making the hair yellow - the fruit being gathered before it be perfectly dry, and beaten, and put up into an earthen vessel, is of force to make hair yellow . It is a poisonous plant, but nevertheless, it is used medicinally. Cocklebur tea has been used to reduce fevers (H M Hyatt), and a sore throat remedy from Indiana uses the leaves and root, powdered. Mix with a little flour and water, and put a little on the back of the tongue, so that it drips into the throat (Tyler). An Alabama ringworm cure uses the juice and

Portugal, and claimed that tobacco healed boils and running sores. Even quite recently, in Iowa, a tea was made from tobacco juice and drunk to cure ringworm (Stout), and carbuncles have been dealt with by using a tobacco leaf as a poultice (Thomas & Thomas), while in Scotland, a chewed leaf has been used to cure a whitlow (Rorie. 1914). Ointments and syrups were made from it by infusing the leaves in water, milk or urine. Wounds and tumours were treated with the fresh leaves (cuts were until very recently treated in Ireland and Scotland by binding on a tobacco leaf to stop the bleeding and to heal it (Egan), or a dampened leaf could be put on a corn for a few days (Maloney)). Plasters for rheumatism could be made by damping the leaves, or even using cut-up pipe tobacco (Hutchinson & Melville). The seeds, taken with molasses, was an Indiana remedy for worms (Brewster).
(Bocconia frutescens) A small tree from central America south to Peru. The Totonac use it for ringworm of the scalp, the leaves being soaked in alcohol and the affected parts bathed it is also used for tuberculosis, when the leaves are boiled and the liquid drunk, or as a bath (Kelly & Palerm). A root infusion is used to treat jaundice and oedema in Colombia, while in Mexico the same infusion is used to cure warts and ophthalmia (Usher). The bark contains an alkaloid that has been used as an anaesthetic by Mexican surgeons (Perry. 1972).
The main folk medicinal use is for skin complaints, an ancient practice. Dioscorides writeth, that Nightshade is good against S Anthonies fire, the shingles, . Gerard wrote, while still warning his readers of the dangers of using such a toxic plant. We find this use against erysipelas, for that is what St Anthony's fire is, in America, too. In Mexico, for instance, the Totonac grind the whole plant, add salt and lime juice to it, and apply it as a plaster (Kelly & Palerm). In South Africa, too, a paste made of the unripe berries is in general use as an application to ringworm (Watt & Breyer-Brandwijk). Sunburn is treated in Indiana by crushing the leaves and stirring them in a cup of cream. When ready, put the cream on the sunburned area (Tyler).
The common garden weed, which generations of children have gathered, to put the milky juice on the warts on their fingers. If they suck their fingers afterwards, there will be an acute burning sensation in the mouth (Forsyth). This use on warts is very widespread. In East Anglia, sun spurge, dandelion and greater celandine were the three plants used (G E Evans. 1966). But not in that order, for sun spurge is the least popular. It is used in Brittany, too, but it has to be picked from the path along which a funeral has passed, and it has to be found by chance, (Sebillot). There was ritual in the use in Ireland, too - in County Clare the juice had to be applied seven times, with appropriate prayers being said, and there was a further proscription, for it had to be picked at a particular unspecified period of the sun and moon in August (Westropp. 1911). There is recorded a domestic use of a decoction of sun spurge for ringworm (Dyer. 1889, Trevelyan). Gerard...
