Fungal infection on feet, no itch, spreading. Will it get healed on its own? Any cream?

I am having a kind of funngal infection, ringworm i think on my feet , just 3 or 4 rings. They dont really itch but im worried that they may spread if i dont use any medication . However, im 16 weeks pregnant now. I asked my gp and she suggested Hydrozole but i dont want to use it. Is it ok to leave the ringworms there without treatment? Or could you suggest any cream that safely helps get rid of them?

Thanks for posting your query.
Ring worm fungal infection is highly contagious but not in damp or humid areas, excessive sweating and having a weak immune system may predispose such fungal infections.
Continue your antifungal cream prescribed by your doctor, in some cases oral antifungal drugs are prescribed but should be avoided in pregnancy.
Maintain good personal hygiene around other people and avoid scratching the affected areas of your skin. Avoid sharing stuffs with others.Take your pet to see a vet if a ringworm infection is suspected. Keep your skin dry.
Hope it helps.
Take Care!
