Raw papaya also helps kill fungi that cause ringworm due to its antifungal properties.
- Rub a slice of raw papaya on the affected area. Leave it on for at least 15 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. Do this at least two times a day for a few days.
- You can also apply fresh papaya leaf juice or a paste made with dried papaya seeds.
Turmeric is a well-known ingredient used in several Ayurvedic remedies for its antiseptic, antibiotic, and antifungal properties. Plus, it soothes the skin and facilitates the healing process.
- Extract the juice from grated, raw turmeric root. Apply the juice on the ringworm rash three times a day until the infection clears.
- You can also heat one-half cup of milk along with one-quarter teaspoon of turmeric and drink it.
