A ring-shaped skin illness called ringworm is brought on by a fungus. Even though eczema and psoriasis sometimes resemble ringworm, there are important distinctions between the two in terms of appearance and management. Animals and people can both contract ringworm. Initial symptoms of the infection include discolored, frequently scaly patches on the affected areas. On lighter skin, these patches usually seem red, but on darker skin, they appear brown-gray.
