It can be transmitted easily from one person to another through shared objects such as combs, towels or pillows or by person to animal contact like dog or cat. It may affect any age or person but it is more common in children.

What are the causes?

It is a fungal infection which is caused by fungi called dermatophytes. Fungi are microorganisms that are present on dead tissue such as finger nails, hair and outer layer of skin.

It can be easily spread from one person to another or using objects like combs, pillows or bedding that have been used by infected person.

The other reason may be due to animal contact such as house pets, dogs, cats. These are also a carrier of ringworm infection.

AYURVEDIC OUTLOOK

As per Ayurveda, this problem is regarded as Dadru. According to Ayurveda it is due to the vitiation of vata and kapha doshas. These doshas manifest in the skin and cause accumulation of ama (toxins). These toxins affect the deeper tissues of the skin like Rasa (plasma), Rakta (blood), mansa (muscles) and lasika (lymphatic). These toxins cause infection of deeper tissues and aggravation of kapha and vata doshas lead to ringworm of scalp. The third dosha, pitta which represents heat or fire in body is also involved. Hence it is a tridoshaj disease, in which the primary cause is vata and kapha doshas.

Obesity is known as Sthaulya Or Meda rog in Ayurveda. According to Ayurveda, there are three main energies in the body- vata, pitta and kapha which are responsible for good health. Imbalance of any three energies results in any health complications. The main cause of obesity as per Ayurveda is aggravation of kapha. Kapha is one of the doshas in the body which is dense, heavy, slow, sticky, wet and cold in nature. It is responsible for structure and lubrication of all body parts. Apart from this, it is responsible for controlling weight and formation of main dhatus like rasa (lymph), Mansa (muscles), Meda (fat), Majja (nervous system) and Shukra (reproductive system). In obesity, meda is excessively nourished. When kapha is balanced, it provides nutrition to the different tissues. When kapha is imbalanced, toxins are produced in the body. These toxins get accumulated in the weaker part of body and cause blockage. In obesity, these toxins gets accumulated in the Medovahi Srotas (fat passage) that leads to increase in the production of medha dahtus (fat tissues) which directly increases the body weight.
