Fungal infections such as ringworm are a sign of fungal infection, such as ringworm.





Don't make a mountain out of a molehill! The fatigue and bruising sounds like simple anemia. Go to your family doctor and have them run a blood panel.
Reply:ringworm itself is contracted,one recieves it from animals,you can also contract it from a person who has it,i would'nt worry about your symptoms relating to leukemia as i have brusing,itching skin and bad fatigue,it usually is a result of lacking in something with the bruises,the dry skin try using a good cream for this,the fatigue? i use berocca,read the links for symptoms:
