Is anyone familiar with treating tinea capitis? I am a breastfeeding mother researching options for natural treatment of tinea capitis (ringworm of the scalp). I've heard tea tree oil works, can anyone atest to this?
Thanks!

I'm researching this too as both my daughter and dog have it. Check out this link as it's got some good info on helping pets and people Apparently ACV is highly rated.

I don't have personal experience with this but have heard that healing clay ( as in calcium bentonite) is great for all fungal and yeasty things.
It can be used both externally and internally.
