In brief: Maybe.

Theoretically it would kill many types of ringworm fungus species, but it is not approved for that indication - and plenty of cheap and effective creams are available specifically for that purpose.
Plus, you should never apply silver sulfadiazine if you are allergic to sulfa drugs.
