Anyone have a natural remedy for ring worm? It went away for a few weeks and now looks like it is surfacing again in the same spot. The cream the doctor gave us looks like it is scarring her forehead. Any tips would be appreciated, thanks.

Fungus hates apple cider vinegar. Put it on the spot as often as you think of it and it will dry it out. Keep it up for a few days after the spot is totally gone. Also, if you could get her to drink a little (like 1/4 tsp) every day, maybe in some water with agave nectar to sweeten it, that would help get her system more alkaline, which ringworm don't do well in.

Let me know how it works out. I've used in on diaper rash caused by yeast, but never on ringworm.
