I WAS OUTSIDE IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE WITH MY SON GETTING THE MAIL, AS I ENTERED THE HOUSE I NOTICED THAT A FEW MOSQUITOES BITES ON MY RIGHT ARM.I MANNAGED TO KILL A FEW MOSQUITOES BUT THE ITCHING KICKED IN AFTER A FEW MIN.'S. THE NEXT DAY I NOTICED SYSMTOMS OF TINEA CAPITIS (RINGWORM) ON THE INSIDE OF MY RIGHT ELBOW. THIS IS THE SECOND TIME IN 2 DIFF LOCATIONS (1ST WAS AT MY DADS BAR ABOUT MONTH AND 1/2 APART IN TIME LAPS. I NOTICED A REACURENING SITUATION,BUT WITH THE SAME AFFECT: -SHORT SLEAVES SHIRT -WARM CLIMET:SUMMER TIME: (HUMED IN THE DAY TIME) -HAVINGIN/KILLING MOSQUITO/BITES ON MY ARMS (MOST OF THE BITE WHERE CONCENTRADED ON ONE ARM (1ST TIME WAS MY LEFT ARM AND THE TIME 2ND TIME ON MY RIGHT) -THE MAIN BITE WERE IN THE SAME LOCATIONS AS THE RINGWORM (INNER SIDE OF THE ELBOW). I HAVE NOTICED THAT TICKS CAN SPREAD THE LIME DESEASE BACTIRIA, CAN MOSQUITOES SPREAD A DERIVED RINGWORM BACTIRIA AS FROM ANIMALS (CATS,DOGS,ECT..)? -ALSO BY ADDING TO THE FACTOR OF SCRATCHING CAN IT ASIST IN PRODUCING "SKING INFECTION" (E.I RINGWORM)?
Your observations are good, however, as far as I know, mosquitoes do not spread ringworm. You are correct in that they spread West Nile Virus and malaria. This is a fungal infection that is typically spread by direct contact with someone who has had the fungal infection, or touching something that they touched. If you touched something that was infected, then scratched a mosquito bite, you can infect yourself with ringworm.
