Cleaned ringworm on arm with bleach, got burned, oosing clear fluid, infected. How to treat it?

I had a ringworm on my arm . It expanded and I cleaned it with bleach. It went away quickly but had a small one left. I got a cotton ball and held it on for 15 minutes. It really burned. Once I took it off, it was dark circle there. Now it is ooosing clear fluid and sorta looks like a portion of it may have a hint of green. i assume it could be infected. It grew a scalb in two days but once i clean it with bacteria soap or denorex some comes off. But it seems to dry it out. I am just worried about water substance. a little puffy surrounding it. in the crease of my rt arm by elbow . should i clean with peroxide and put neosporine on it and keep leaving it open?

It seema that there might be having some irritation due to bleach and now infection took place.
Do not clean with hydrogen peroxide but with medicated soap and waem water and then apply neosporine cream.
If there is infection go for one oral antibiotic medicine course.
If ringworm infection persisted then apply anti-fungal cream.
Ok and take care.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Injury, irritation, inflammation. Infection - from the substances used is the most likely cause.
Do not interfere any further – it may become worse and leave an ugly scar...
Consult a dermatologist / it is easily and completely curable...

Take care     
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
