In brief: Antifungals
Since ringworm is caused by a fungus, not a worm, there are no "ringworms.
" ringworm is first treated with over-the-counter antifungal medications. You should also keep the area very dry, since fungus likes moisture. In cases that don't respond, doctors sometimes prescribe oral antifungal drugs.
