Hi,
Thanks for writing in.
Ring worm infection is purely a skin problem. The pathogens causing this infection cannot and do not survive or thrive in the liver. Therefore there cannot be any ring worm infection of the liver. The treatment of this is local as well as systemic treatment accompanied by good personal hygiene. As there has been secondary skin infection you may require dressings as well as antibiotics.
