Ringworm on knees, back, behind left leg. Taken refucil. Is it right?

My daughter is one year and ten months, she is being treated for ringworm on her knee , on back and behind her left leg. She is to take refucil for a period of more than 2 weeks - is this correct? Already, I have changed her bath soap to an antiseptic brand, her hair is now washed with an antiseptic shampoo etc. Am I doing the right thing or exagerating the treatment?

Hi, there is a lot of resistance to refucil these days and if the ringworm is in a localised area i would prefer that use of a topical agent like livafin cream of lullifin lotion would solve the problem.
take care
