3. Flaking scalp.
Ringworm can infect the scalp, and when it does, it can present itself in a manner that is similar to dandruff.
When the skin on the scalp is affected by ringworm, it will start to flake off and become itchy. Scratching the scalp will make the flaking worse.
Applying a bit of tea tree oil to the scalp can help to ease the flaking and discomfort; however, it is important to see a doctor ensure that the condition is diagnosed and that you receive proper treatment.
