Is there any over the counter medication I can buy for a ringworm? My puppy has some (they are healing) we took her to the vet and she has medicine for it. But now I have 2. I have some anti ich cream but idk if that is good enough. The one on my arm looks better but I have one that just popped up a few days ago and its itchy. Can I just buy a medication for it or do I need to go to the doctor and get a prescription. I have never dealt with ringworms before.

  • Sorry I am not getting rid of my dog. The ringworm will heal in time. And what would I do give her to someone else so they can get ringworm? We are dealing with her ringworm the right way and the vet said it is looking better. Where do I buy Blue Star?
