I have not confirmed it with a dr., but I think my daughter may have pickup up ringworm fungus from a pet. I bought a creme but am curious about natural cures.

Garlic is a fungicide. I wouldn't scrub a child raw and use bleach. Cream would be a better choice. I'm not sure how you could use garlic. Maybe a paste.
I had a cat that had ringworm bad. She was a beautiful cat and I felt so sorry for her. It didn't seem to bother her though. I did a lot of research at the time and there is conflicting recommendations. One vet said to shave all your pets! I ended up doing nothing. My family has a genetic immune deficiency disease and I was concerned that because we are all immunocompromised we would get it.
I slept with her and never got it. No one else in our 3 generation home got it including my toddler grandson (he also has the genetic disease). One other cat got it a little bit but both cats got over it on their own.
