Thanks for putting your query over here.
Would like to know where over the body have you got ringworm,your age and presence of any medical conditions.The amount of sweating and tightness & type of clothing are some of the provoking factors for causing ringworm
.
Ringworm has to be treated with ointment containing antifungals like clotrimazole and steroids.There are certain ointments available over the counter for local application but the steroidal ones have to be taken under supervision.It may be accompanied by intake of anti allergic drugs like cetrizine once a day.If still it doesnt recedes,oral antifungal medicines need to be taken with physician's prescription.
You need to wear soft and loose clothing.keep the area away from moisture by applying talc powder.
