    Ringworms are helminths that are acquired faeco-orally; essentially from eating or drinking contaminated food/water. Proper cooking of meals and drinking of clean water plus regular handwashing reduce its incidence. There are too msny causes of abdominal pain include gastritis, enteritis, abdominal tumors, ulcers e.t.c Rashes can occur on any part of the body. Most are viral in origin but could also be fungal or bacterial Fungal infections need to be treated properly first then avoid re-exposure either sexually, skin contact or use of unhygienic toilets
