Hi Sandeep
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
You can use the same cream again to treat it and use it a week after disappearance of rash.I advise you to visit your Dermatologist and get evaluated if you have ringworm due to any underlying skin condition or low immunity.
Maintain good hygiene and take Vitamin C supplements.
Hope I answered your question.If you need more information feel free to mail me.
Take care
