Question:

IS STOMACH CRAMPS, NAUSA AND DIRRHEA A SYMTOM OF RINGWORM. My duaughter has a red ring on her face, could this be ringworms.

thanks

Answer:

Stomach cramps, nausea and diarrhea are not part of fungal infections any where on the human body.  I don't have enough information about your daughter's age or the duration of the eruption on the face to be informative to you.  I would urge that you have your daughter seen by a board certified dermatologist who can accurately define the lesion on her face and help you arrive at proper treatment.
