How Long is Ringworm Contagious in Humans ? 

Ringworm is a highly contagious disease that can be easily passed on from person to person, from animal to person, from object to person or the other way around. It can be passed on through direct skin-to-skin contact with an infected person or animal or through indirect contact with any surface or object that is touched by an infected person or animal. Infected house pets and farm animals remain contagious for up to three weeks if the recommended measures and treatments are not taken. Minimize exposure of infected animals to others until it recovers completely.
