I think ds might have ringworm. He has eczema that is related to food sensitivities, and that what I originally thought this rash was. But it doesn't seem to correlate to food, and now the center is starting to clear out, with a red scaley ring around the edges.<br><br>
After reading around, it seems like treating it as ringworm shouldn't hurt anything, so I dabbed some very diluted acv on it a few times last night. I did more acv this morning, and put canesten on it once.<br><br>
It looks lighter and smaller than it did yesterday. Is it possible for it to improve this quickly? Everything I've read says it takes days, or up to 2 weeks, to improve.

It's right under his belly button. Off to google the two types you mentioned...<br><br><br>
eta- nevermind. I just got a good look at it, and I guess I spoke too soon. It's still about the same. Strange that it looked so much better before. I guess it was in different light?
