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
