Ringworm, slept without bed sheet. Will it reinfect?

So I havea bed sheet that i used to use a few weeks ago but then I removed it frmo my bed because it had a hole in it. I have ringworm and have been sleeping in my bed without the bed sheet for about 2 weeks now, I was wondering if I have to replace my matress because I think i might get reinfected in the future from ringworm. My matress has no bed sheet and I was wondering if I should wash my pillows too and blanket.

Hi ! I am not aware to which area you belong to. If you are from a region where there is no dearth of good sunlight, then you can subject all the items to sunlight for a whole day or two. The blanket can be dry cleaned. I hope these procedures will help you out. Wish you good luck.
