I have gone through your query and can understand your concerns.

As per your complain Ringworm is a fungal infection of skin and as it is contagious that can transmit from one individual to another..
As it has occurred on inner thigh it might be due to poor maintenance of hygiene, accumulation of moisture in that area and wearing tight clothes and under garments that dos not let air to flow in the area..

The treatment of Ringworm can be done with topical and oral antifungal medications and you can apply ointments containing Clotrimazole, Terbinafine, Miconazole etc..
You can apply Micoderm as it is an antifungal and antibacterial composition..
It should be done for 2 weeks..
In case if it does not resolve then oral antifungals like Griseofulvin or Terbinafine can be advised to you..
You should also keep the area dry and clean..
Wear loose fitting clothes and cotton undergarments..
Maintain a good hygiene..
Avoid sharing your clothes and towels with others..

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards.
