Ringworm is a skin condition caused by a fungal infection, not an actual parasite infestation, and is diagnosed by small, brownish, raised areas of skin that look like rings. The cost and financing options for treatment of ringworm can vary depending on the severity of the condition and the treatments needed. Generally ringworm is treated with a simple anti-fungal cream to be used on the affected area until the infection subsides.
Cost of Treatments
Since treatment is over the counter, there is no high cost and insurance is not needed. If you don't have the money for the anti-fungal cream or other recommended treatment, speak with your doctor about potential samples or natural remedies you can try.
As discussed, treatment options for ringworm are not expensive nor extensive in time frame. The only financing options that would be available would be for the office visits or other medical costs incurred during diagnosis. Speak with the billing office of your doctor's office to find out about financing options.
Ringworm is a skin condition that can be irritating and cause some pain. Treatment recommendations will also include the use of an anti-itch cream or treatment.
