  1. I had ringworm and my father brought me to the doctor. The doctor put ointment on it but it did no good. I had it for a few weeks and it was getting worse instead of better. Then my father heard of a man who had the "cure" for it. He brought me to a Mr Dykes in Sligo. He lives near the Showgrounds. He put a red ointment on it for me twice and it got better.
