How do I avoid spreading my ringworm rash to other places on myself, or to my baby or husband?

In brief: First of all...

...Make sure it's ringworm - many rashes are mistaken for ringworm by untrained caregivers.
Once you know for a fact that it is ringworm, get started on treating it. (you may need a prescription cream or even an oral medication.) then, wash your clothes, and don't share clothing, sports gear, towels, or sheets with your husband or baby until the ringworm is gone.
