If this exists somewhere else, feel free to direct me. After some decent searching, I'm not finding any suggestions for natural treatment of ringworm, athlete's foot, etc.

I understand these to be the same fungus so assuming natural treatment would be similar or the same.

I'd love if Dr. Sharol Tilgner or someone else super-qualified could weigh in here.

How can we get rid of the fungal infections without anti-fungals?

Thanks guys!

I can only speak from my experience.  As a child iodine was used for ringworn.

You are right that they are all related.

We had a dog that had some kind od skin disorder that was not mange though related to it.  We used iodine in a spray bottle and it cleared it up.

I have heard that making a paste from garlic might help.  Also aloe vera might help.

Ringworm can be cured with oil any oil, the locals round here use used engine oil, we used vegetable oil (dipping a kitten or myself in old engine oil did not appeal. just apply it a few times a day for a week.

Oregano oil... dilute with coconut oil. It comes from a spice so if you don’t no dilute 50-75% it will burn .
