This should be taken with steamed or raw vegetables. They help to boost your immune system and to treat ringworm. What’s more, they prevent future occurrences. Whole wheat chapattis are also great for your ringworm diet. You can consider milk with chapattis to balance your meal. More importantly, ensure a healthy and fresh diet at all times.
