How to cure a really bad ring worm infection on my back?

I am trying to figure out how to cure a really bad ring worm infection on my back. It has become very large and has become infected. I have used the walgreens antifungal cream, desoximetasone cream, and I was about to take medicine called griseofulvin (my son took this for problems with his hair ). Will this be enough or what else can I do?
