How do I get rid of ring worm?

My children have ring worm. Do they need to go to the doctor?


Answer by  ivyO (23)

Yes, they have to go to the doctor, and he will provide them with a treatment with antifungal lotion, cream or tablets since they have a fungal infection. It is important for the benefit of them and others that they go to the doctor since ringworm is a contagious disease.

You can treat ringw worm at home with an over the counter anti-fungal cream. Apply to each "ring" several times a day until they go away.

Get an over the counter topical cream or ointment. Use it for the recommended time period. If it doesn't go away, you will have to take children to the doctor.
