fungus face!

I have this weird thing on my face, right by my ear. It started as a bump that itched, so I assumed it was a bite of some sort. I put anti-itch creme on it and thought that was that.

But it kept growing! It turned into this welp that is about as big as a nickle and is flat in the middle, raised on the edges. It itches every now and then, but it is very unsightly. In fact, I no longer can pull my hair back because I am trying to hide it all the time.

Joe was joking with me about and said,"It's probably a ringworm." Well, initially I was like, "yeah whatever!" But it turns out...I have a ringworm...on my face! I am a fungus face. :(

Apparently, ringworm is the same fungus as athlete's foot or jock itch, just located in a different place. It's treated with the same lotions, creams, etc. So now I am having to scrub my face in warm soapy water twice a day and add this stinging solution to it afterward. It's supposed to kill the fungus in 2-4 WEEKS! How long must I be so deformed??? :)

But seriously, where did I contract this? We don't have pets, I don't rub my face on Joe's nasty fungus feet. The only thing I can figure is I hugged a kid who has ringworm on his scalp. (You know how you lean your cheek on their heads when you hug them?) I have no idea...but there it is. And here's my fugus face (covered with make-up somewhat):
Please pity me. It's no fun feeling sorry for yourself all alone. ;)

I am so sorry about your unfortunate run in with the fungus. When I adopted a cat from the pound, I had it in 3 places, including my face! I feel your pain, and I am so sorry! Take care!
I love keeping up with you through your blog!
Hope all is well!

After researching about the fungus and reading about other people getting rid of it in some weird way, I decided to try my own way of getting rid of it, so I cleaned my face with hydrogen peroxide. After a couple minutes my face started to feel dry, and peeled. I remove the dead skin and then clean over the dry part again with the hydrogen peroxide, it burns everytime I weould do that, but that's how I know it works. Within days, my skin was back to normal, NO FUNGUS! NO ITCH! NO SWELLING! Try it out guys, it works and is truely efffective.
