  • Ringworm actually isn't a worm, but an infection that gets into the skin. I actually contracted it this summer after going to a fair, because someone who had it decided to spread it around.

    I do remember a boy when I was growing up, he was about 10 and had several spots in the top of his head from having to deal with it. Far as I can recall, his hair grew back just fine.

  • My middle one had that on his head when he was 3. He is 12 now and when his hair is buzzed or cut very short you can see his 'bald spot' from it.

  • I think their hair grows back fine, may just take awhile.
