  • Ringworm is a fungal infection. You can get them anywhere and it is treated with the same anti-fungal as athlete's foot. It most likely cannot be passed to the baby and the treatment shouldn't harm them either since neither are passed through the bloodstream.

  • Ummm...ringworm is a skin condition, isn't it? How would it get to your blood stream? Do you mean tapeworms, or pinworms?

  • Mkay, I really didn't know, I've never had to deal with any of those - I never would have guessed it can get in your blood.
