If you prefer using something natural, you can apply tea tree oil to the area, it's a natural anti-fungal agent.

My daughter had ringworm on her forehead and the Dr. said just to get an antifungal to put on it. Just make sure and wash your hands well after every application. It will go away before you know it.

Yep go to the dr. and get the cream. My daughter would get this after a visit with her dad.. Becareful because you can get it, if you have pets they can get it too.

Ringworm is a fungal infection (not an actual worm) and can be highly contagious. Wash the area and keep it dry. Don't allow her to mess with it (it will itch) and contact your doctor for an anti-fungal medication. If she messes with the area too much she can actually get an secondary infection. Make sure she leaves it alone and if you have any pets I would suggest you check them for the infection as well. It will appear as a circular patch of missing fur with a reddish tinge at the edges. If your pets have ringworm and it's a minor infection you can go to the local pet store and get a medication for it there. DO NOT USE THE PET MEDICATION ON YOUR DAUGHTER. That's probably a really silly, obvious statement but I've had parents do this before.
