In brief: Topical anti-fungal

Ringworm is actually a fungal skin infection- not a parasitic infection.
Therefore, depending on the size and extent of the infection, one can first try an over-the-counter anti-fungal creme. If in doubt, see your doctor to determine if a prescription for an anti-fungal pill is right for you.
