Brief Answer:
Cefdinir doesn't work on ringwworm!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

Ringworm is not very contagious. It needs direct and prolonged contact for transmission. Cefdinir doesn't act on ringworm. I will rather recommend that you use miconazole to treat this rather.

I hope this helps and wish you well. Thanks for using our services and feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
