2. Contraction From People

Some people will catch ringworm after direct contact with another person that has been diagnosed with the disease. All it takes is for your skin to come into contact with the skin of an infected person where the infection is located. This will obviously most likely happen in people likely to be in contact with others, such as people who take part in contact sports.

It is also possible to catch the infection from infected animals, which can also be infected by the fungus. The infection tends not to be noticed on animals if their skin is covered by fur. Cats and dogs can get the disease, and sufficient contact with them can mean the fungus is spread to you also.
