The circular inflamed ring on your skin that looks like a worm burrowed beneath it is actually not a worm at all, despite the fact that it is called ringworm. It is a fungal infection of your skin, caused by one of a number of fungi in the Tinea family. The infection can cause an itchy and painful rash, which can blister. This infection generally occurs on the neck, arms torso and legs. And the infection can spread quickly – to different parts of the body or from person to person, simply by skin contact or contact with an object contaminated by the fungus.
Although it can occur quite often, it is highly treatable and there are many ointments on the market, such as Wonder Balm, which are designed to eliminate the infection of ringworm. This review closely examines the effectiveness and other features of this natural ointment.

This product contains a long list of naturally occurring ingredients. However, it is concerning that the product description contains no explanation for the role of each ingredient. The roles of each of these ingredients were therefore obtained from the examination of similar products which do provide descriptions and from a review of scientific literature. Most of the ingredients include oils, which contain omega acids, which nourish the skin and have mild anti-inflammatory properties. Macadamia oil is a good example of this. The olive oil, Eucalyptus Australiana oil, beeswax, lavender oil and tea tree oil all have mild antifungal or antimicrobial properties. Tea tree oil further provides soothing in the irritated area. A number of oils act as antioxidants – such as canola oil, and rose geranium oil. The tocopheryl acetate is a form of delivering vitamin E to the skin, which helps in skin healing. Lastly, vitamin C, which also has antioxidant properties, is included in a variety of remedies for many conditions because it boosts the immune system.
Wonder Balm ointment should be applied to the skin of the area affected by ringworm two to three times a day.
The concentration or amount of each ingredient is not specified, so it is not possible to determine if the correct dose of each is being administered in terms of clinical and scientific literature.
One jar of Wonder Balm can be purchased online for $34.97. There are no package deals or discounts available.
The product does come with a lifetime guarantee, which includes a full refund if the customer is unsatisfied.
Puriya Wonder Balm Review – Conclusion
All of the ingredients in Wonder Balm are naturally occurring and do not present major side effects. In addition, the ointment treats inflammation and soothes the affected area while treating the infection. The price is reasonable and the lifetime guarantee does suggest manufacturer confidence.
However, it is a major drawback that the ingredients listed possess very mild antifungal properties and may only be able to treat very small and early infections. Such ingredients would struggle to contain and treat a full-blown ringworm infection.
