As per ayurveda you have to follow some diet regulation for ringworm infection. Like, avoid curd, pickle and other sour food, fermented food, pungent food.

Do not wear skin-tight cloths

For local application use HALDI(turmeric powder) and PALASH BEEJ(Butea seeds) and make paste with Luke warm water and apply it on infected part, for 3- 4times in a day, till the infection is cured.

Do not take any internal medicines yourself right now, consult your doctor for HIV.

If you follow diet and apply this herbal paste you can definitely get good result.

If you have any query regarding Ayurveda please feel free to ask.
