Chances are your baby got ringworm.

Probably from contact with an infected person or pet.

The fungus can also be caught from infected towels, hairbrushes, combs, hats, and other clothing.

If he's walking, he could also have picked it up on his feet from toddling around barefoot in an infected locker room or pool area.

Experts think there's some genetic tendency for catching ringworm.

And excess sweating seems to increase the chances, too, as it the condition thrives best in humid climates.
