Brief Answer: details below Detailed Answer: Hello. Bleach can temporarily stop the growth of ring worm but cannot totally destroy it. There are many anti fungal creams, like clotrimazole available in market. You can use any of them to get a permanent cure. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
