As of 2015, there is no homeopathic cure for ringworm of the skin; however, there are other options to treat ringworm at home, says WebMD. Over-the-counter antifungal products are effective at clearing up mild cases of ringworm and come in cream, gel, lotion and spray forms.
For the best results, the antifungal product should contain clotrimazole or miconazole, reports WebMD. Non-prescription ointments are applied directly to the skin and are commonly used for two to four weeks. The person exhibiting ringworm should begin to see results within two weeks. Ringworm is a fungal infection that grows on the skin and is spread through skin-to-skin contact, notes Mayo Clinic.
