No, but....: Calamine will not cure ringworm - period. However, with everything that you have tried, I would highly suspect the diagnosis is either wrong or you did not use the previous treatments long enough, as skin fungal infections can take months to clear. If you have not seen dermatologist and had scrapings and confirmation of the diagnosis, that's where you need to start. Calamine helps with itch only.
