Ringworm from animals

Ringworm is one of the many diseases and parasites carried by domestic pets that can be passed to humans. Dogs and cats are carriers of several potentially nasty diseases and infections that can infect humans, including giardia, roundworm, toxoplasmosis, ringworm, tapeworm, cat scratch fever, which, in serious cases can affect the human host's heart and brain.
Veterinarians say the best way to avoid infection was to follow vaccination and worming schedules and to practise good hygiene. Animal faeces will contaminate the garden or sandpit and can pass on immature roundworms to adults and particularly children. Tapeworms can be carried by dogs and while they may tolerate them can cause nasty cysts in people. The most important thing people can do, is to wash your and especially with children it is a good idea to apply a hand sanitiser after playing where animals live.
Ringworm is one of the easier fungus infections to treat if caught from an animal, or simply just appearing on the skin. It can be treated safely and effectively with natural cream and oil containing the essential oil of the New Zealand Manuka plant. Studies show that Manuka oil is 5-10 times more effective treating ringworm than Tea Tree oil without the potential to cause a rash.
These products are now available in a comprehensive natural ringworm treatment pack

Scabies outbreak in Clinton Louisiana schools

It has been reported that 13 students have been identified with scabies at East Feliciana Parish public elementary and high school in Clinton La. forcing the school to close and rooms to be disinfected.

Scabies is a very old problem, however in recent years strains of scabies mites have appeared that are resistant to traditional man-made chemical treatments such as lindane, crotamiton, and benzyl benzoate, as well as emerging resistance to permethrin and oral ivermectin.

This has led to the development of natural scabies treatments including formulas containing tea tree oil (or melaleuca) and essential oil from the New Zealand Manuka plant.

A very effective natural scabies treatment is a formula containing both of these proven essential oils in oil, cream and soap products.

Toxic environment cause of eczema

According to news reports from UK the toxic environment in which we live is a contributing factor in the incidence of eczema outbreaks in children and adults.
Chemical irritants and allergens are a major cause, including dust mites and pet fur, so the kitten, puppy or rabbit you got for your child could be a cause of eczema.
Eczema also appears to be linked to asthma suggesting that it could be the air that we breath that is leading to a greater incidence of eczema today than was the case a decade or two ago.
Of the treatments available the safest is often a natural herbal remedy and one that has received a lot of acclaim contains New Zealand Manuka honey. Manuka honey is used in a wide range of skin care and healing formulas today and is now widely accepted by the medical community as a highly effective antimicrobial agent. Manuka honey has the added benefit of being hygroscopic, attracting and maintaining moisture and calming the skin. More information is available at

Is your pet making you sick?

Dogs are well documented carriers of Ringworm and cats also carry this fungus which can easily be passed to humans.
This ability to transfer disease from animals to humans and vice-versa called zoonotic disease, and Ringworm is zoonotic.
So you need to make sure that your pets are not carriers of Ringworm, it is not enough that they do not display obvious symptoms, they can sometimes have Ringworm without showing signs of it.
If you see any circular bare patches on your dog or cat it pays to have it checked. A vet will use a Woods test which is a black light (ultraviolet) which will show up Ringworm as a luminous glow and this will need to be treated.
The good news is that Ringworm is simple to treat with a natural ringworm treatment pack consisting of oil, cream and soap containing the essential oil of the New Zealand Manuka bush.
This natural ingredient has undergone considerable scientific testing and been found to be just as effective as over the counter ringworm treatments without any side effects.

Home remedies for ringworm

It constantly amazes me why people continue to submit crazy home remedies on forums. The most recent ones I have seen relating to home remedies for ringworm include taking garlic, bathing in bleach, and using a paste of baking soda!

Another one stated she didn't want to take her doctors advice because she was worried that the medication could damage her liver. Why would you go to a doctor and not take their advice.

Ringworm treatment is not difficult to do at home, however it is vital that people use treatments that are both safe and effective.
Another poster on a forum complained that her ringworm continued to return following an undisclosed home remedy. It probably returned because the home remedy was totally ineffective.

For people who want to treat ringworm infection at home and want to use a natural product, the ideal solution is the Manuka Natural Ringworm Treatment pack. The products in this pack all contain the essential oil of the New Zealand Manuka plant, which has been proven in scientific studies to be totally effective against the fungus that causes ringworm, safe for children and to have no known side effects.
