My two sons had a problem with the same thing and their doctor prscribed something for them it was a medicated shampoo, plus he said that I had to make sure they didnt not play in the dirt because dirt brings it back do to all the germs in dirt. I hope this has helped you. Good Luck

My son had ringworm of the scalp also. His PCP prescribed an oral medication & shampoo. The oral med to be taken for 8 weeks & the shampoo twice a week. This is needed they said so it does not come back.

I used to have problems with my daughter's scalp as well. I put some VO5 oil which loosened up the dry scalp and (cross my fingers) hasn't been back since.
