  • Griseofulvin is used to treat skin infections such as jock itch, athlete's foot, and ringworm; and fungal infections of the scalp, fingernails, and toenails. This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information. If the kid can swallow the pill and it was medically prescribed then sure give it to the kid
