Ringworm (Tinea capitis) is caused by a fungus that lives on the top layer of the skin. It appears as round, scaly patches on the skin. Ringworm is contagious and is spread by skin-to-skin contact and contact with contaminated materials such as towels and clothing. You can treat ringworm at home with the use of colloidal silver, according to RingWorm.biz. Colloidal silver is an antifungal, over-the-counter product.

Cleanse the ringworm area with warm water and soap.

Dry the area with the paper towel. Dispose of the paper towel to limit reinfection.

Pour colloidal silver into the spray bottle.

Spray the affected area with the colloidal silver and allow it to air dry.

Repeat the process two or three times daily.
