What is the treatment for scalp ringworm?

I used an antibiotic cream but it didn't help.

To clear the infection properly, you should take a course of oral anti-fungal medications. Combine the medication with a specialized shampoo 2-3 times a week to kill the fungal spores.

Your best bet would be a more natural route. Try some witch hazel, or diluted tea tree oil. Both are natural anti-fungals, and I use them often with great results.

There are a few natural remedies that can be used like Castor oil being rubbed into the area, using juices like spinach and carrot juice as well.

If you suspect ringworm, you need to be treated by a doctor as soon as possible. It is highly contagious.
