What I thought was run-of-the-mill mat burn has blossomed into a foul plague of ringworm. wrestled and grappled for many years so I'm pretty cognizant of how to prevent this disgusting malady. What I need to know is -Is there a vegan antimicrobial soap out there? what about a cure/treatment? Preferably one that causes said disease to suffer, then die.

Have you tried (and I know it sounds heinous) bleach? I had this as a kid, and my mum put some bleach (not much, I don't remember how much exactly...) in a bathtub, watered down heavily obviously with a full tub of water. Seem to remember that I took a bath every night for a week. (This was after bathing in something that a Doc prescribed, that smelled like tar/creosote and didn't work.)

I googled this, and apparently this home remedy still persists...http://www.tipking.co.uk/tip/3284.html

Don't sue me however if you don't have good results!

Coal tar is probably what you're thinking of britdoc...

Might be some help on the below link -


Tea tree oil is really good I know, as is garlic - both are natural fungicides.
