Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Ringworm is a fungal infection & has a characteristic look there is a circular pattern of very small skin eruptions & has severe itching.If your baby has been prescribed treatment orally or a local application of cream/ointment it will reduce the itching as well as the rash will subside ;these are the signs of recovery.
Wishing your daughter a speedy recovery.
Thanks
