I've a weight problem all my life. My parents bought me "huskies" while I would grammar school. I wasn't a very active kid. My parents always provided 3 good meals personally daily. School lunches were actually nutritious in those days. They weren't anything like they are now with pizza, tacos, hamburgers, sausages, fried potatoes, sweet sodas and all forms of chips and desserts. I hear french fries would be the main course especially with school girls. Today's kids do not have the opportunity. Ringworm from the scalp presents with scaly skin where the hair had been; its as though skin could actually flake off. This requires diagnosis plus a prescription for proper medication from a physician. Once the ringworm is treated, your hair will re-grow. There is an oral medication for it as well as a shampoo.
