Brief Answer:
Clotrimazole cream

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

If it's a localised ring worm infestation, I'd suggest to try clotrimazole creams available as candid B cream on the affected area for a week to 10 days. You should get it evaluated again if symptoms don't improve in 3-5 days after using candid B cream.

In addition, keep the area clean and dry and avoid moisture accumulation.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarification.

Regards
