I'm worried that myself and 2 your chikdrrn have ring worm from sister cat my daughter is 7 weeks old and its on her chin how do I get rid of them?

Ringworm: Clotrimazole, or brand name Lotrimin (clotrimazole) cream is great. Treat 3x a day. Treat until you can barely see it anymore. It can be up to 3 weeks, the fungus has very long roots. This is an OTC drug, here. If you notice it in the scalp, by circular bald spots, then you need to see a doctor, for a medicine you take orally, not a cream. Not a problem, even for your newborn.
