I have a mild case of ringworm on my calf. It was itchy for a week before anything showed up.. I didn't think anything of it until I noticed two rings.

I've been washing the area with Teraseptic (an antibacterial cleanser that doesn't sting), and applying a thin layer of Tinactin (an over-the-counter antifungal cream, medicinal ingredient is 1% tolnaftate) and then covering with Nexcare foam bandages. I've been doing this twice a day - when I wake up, and before I go to bed.

It has only been three days, but so far so good. It is starting to clear up.
