In brief: If in scalp

You will need oral medicine so you must see your friendly physician for a prescription.
Otherwise the cream should work. Ketoconazole is another cream readily available over the counter. Happy healing.

In brief: Ring Worm

Ringworm is a common fungal skin infection otherwise known as tinea.
Ringworm most commonly affects the skin on the body (tinea corporis), the scalp (tinea capitis), the feet (tinea pedis, or athlete's foot), or the groin (tinea cruris, or jock itch). http://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/ss/slideshow-ringworm

In brief: Over the counter

Anti fungal creams such as clotrimazole are available over the counter. Apply 3 times daily until rash resolves and then continue for another 4 days.
It can be contagious so keep covered if it is an exposed area. Be patient- it can take a few weeks to go away.
