Ringworm of the skin usually causes a very itchy rash. It often makes a
pattern in the shape of a ring, but not always. Sometimes
it is just a red, itchy rash.
Most ringworm of the skin can be treated at home with creams you can buy
without a prescription. Your rash may clear up soon after you start treatment,
but it's important to keep using the cream for as long as the label or your
doctor says. This will keep the infection from coming back. If the cream
doesn't work, your doctor can prescribe pills that will kill the fungus.
